Free, Quality Software

Sep 21, 2009
Posted by Molly Nelson - Some free things are never disappointing, like wildflowers or late afternoon sunshine on the last official day of summer.  Other times, free things don't quite live up to our hopes or expectations.  Luckily for small business owners, Inc. has compiled a helpful list of free software programs that may benefit your business without hurting your bottom line.

In addition to Inc.'s list, another free program that I would recommend is Google's Picasa photo editing software.  If you use Gmail or other Google programs you may already be familiar with Picasa's Web Albums feature.  However, the Picasa photo editing program is a free program that you can actually download to your computer to help you organize and edit your photos.

Readers - have you discovered any other free software programs that other business owners might find helpful?  Let us know in the comments!
