I'll come out and say it: Robust media applications are expensive! The tools are great and can take your business where it needs to be. But what if I told you there are other more cost-effective ways to get the same results?

There are many open-source applications that can help you save money while letting your creativity flourish. Open-source programs are modular and give others access to their source code so anyone can fix or improve it. The creators of open-source tools often push out updates and patches to improve their performance. And no, there won't be a million-and-one ads popping up on your screen or a need to subscribe to 30-day free trials with hundreds of fake emails.

We created a list of 5 applications that are powerful and FREE to use, although there are more that could fit on this image.

Have you used any of these before? I'd love to hear about your experiences or any additions you’d make to this short list. Feel free to ask any questions or shed light on more free open-source tools that skyrocketed your efficiency & performance.
