Welcome! [Edit: removed off topic blurb.]

Lots of freeware out there (until you want to buy something, or not). Couple examples (for Windows): Inkscape (vectors); GIMP (Photoshop-like paint program); Sketchup (3D)... And the most "basic" of all, Microsoft Paint.

Those are my (amateur) thoughts. Hope this helps. Smile

Also, remember if you are a student or have a student in the family, you can get very substantial discounts on software like Photoshop or Painter (Photoshop's my fav). Google ... software student discounts.
