Here is a quick list that I put together of programs and their alternatives. Photoshop - Gimp Illustrator - Inkscape Premiere Pro - Final Cut Pro After Effects - Apple Motion Dreamweaver - Coda 2 Unfortunately there isn't an alternative to Flash since its Adobe's proprietary code/software. There are programs that will export swfs, but that doesn't mean ...
Here's what I use. There are many other options as well. Note that I run these on OSX for the most part. Adobe's Photoshop -> Pixelmator Pixelmator is the closest I've gotten to the full 'Photoshop' set of tools. It's still lacking in areas, though. It can open PSD files but note that it can't fully understand the new features in later versions (such as ...

It is easily achieved with a simple mask. Imagine a black rubber stamp. Ideally it would be perfectly solid black (the image layer), but for various reasons not all of the black is transferred (the mask). The reason noise is not acceptable is because it does not "respond" like the paper texture in any way. A Layer mask is a greyscale image used in such a ...
I've always had a hierarchy system in my head. How it got there, I haven't a clue. Thus: text (alpha/numeric/punctuation), dingbats (at times, bullets), flourishes or ornaments (your concern), and finally illustrations -- which have, in my mind, a hierarchy of their own.
Wikipedia seems to call them Dingbats, when entering from the German sister page Zierrat (Druck).
You can check LogoLagoon freebies category. They offer some amazing free logos (in vector format) that can be used for both personal or commercial purposes.
I agree with plainclothes, although I did stumble across this As people have already mentioned; it's flat design. I'd perceive it as a modern trend in vector art that uses a particular colour pallet.
They are also called "flourishes." One of the definitions of the noun form of "flourish" is "a decoration or embellishment, especially in writing," and one of its synonyms is "ornament".
For a repetitive exercise, you are in luck: you can optimize the heck out of it. A "crunch" starts in position A, moves to position B, and then back to position A; repeat. For a simplified animation, you can refine this to A>B, REVERSE the animation B>A, and then repeat. For a crunch, A>B takes about 1 second. For interlaced video, you only need 30 frames, ...
Support for compressed svg will vary by browser, but you need to configure the server to properly flag the svgz file with information about its encoding to explicitly tell the browser how to decode it upon receipt. Server response for svgz needs to be configured to include "Content-encoding: gzip" svg Content-Type: image/svg+xml svgz Content-Type: ...
This might not be the answer you're expecting, but for the web, it's not truly needed to use any SVGZ files. The reason being is that a SVGZ file is simply a SVG that has been pre-Gziped. Modern web servers can do this Gzipping themselves before serving the asset (see this answer on StackOverflow for more info: ...
If you ask someone in the publishing world what they are called they will point you to what's called a "Chapter Ornament" or a "Book Ornament". If you want to get further technical on the design process, book designers will refer to them if they are at the beginning of a chapter as a "Chapter Heading Ornament" or at the end of the chapter as a "End of ...
Scroll ornament is the term, I believe.
As far as I know, they are called 'embellishments', or smore specifically 'text embellishments'.
"If ... you see a pound sign (number sign, #), it means your image has no color profile associated with it." From Earthbound Light, "What Do Those Symbols after the File Name Mean in Photoshop's Title Bar?" That's the best I could find. I know you're not asking about the title bar, but it seems likely related. Essentially, this short piece explains the ...
Effect > Stylize > Scribble will get you close after some adjustment You could also use Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag but that doesn't tend to be as random. You do realize that those paths aren't random but record variations in activity on a given day creating the zig zag path. There's nothing random about them.
