I haven't actually tried these, but while researching time tracking apps, I've run across Totals, Invoice & Lumina which do invoicing and time tracking

I actually gave Fanurio a considerable trial, and it came pretty close. It does do most of what I'm looking for, although there's an annual "maintenance fee" for upgrades and tech support (which is not unreasonable). Ultimately I got too frustrated with the number of clicks it took to enter the details I needed on my task list — in iBiz it's one; in ...

I'm in the same boat. Here are a couple apps I'm looking at. I'm still evaluating them so I can't directly recommend anything, but you may want to evaluate these as well. Profit Train Appears to be a decent client and job tracker. At first glance not as easy on the "start and stop" job timer front. But possible. On The Job Seems to have easier time ...

Sure there are quite many of these in fact. Many (or nearly all that i have used) of the 3d animation packages can do this. Some 2D packages such as game engines can do this (things such as unity/unreal engine can be used as animation packages also) Image 1: A quick* push animation done in Maya. You can also use many of the 3D CAD packages to do this ...

My design team has been using MS Word via Sharepoint to deliver UX specs to our developers Heh. I've been there. I sympathize. The problem is delivering UX specs. That means you're stuck in a waterfall process that avoids collaboration. As such, you can't ever succeed. For this to work in a waterfall model, UX needs to take ownership of the ...

Try Gimp as an alternative to Photoshop, and Blender as one to Maya or 3ds Max. Both are full featured, have a large community, and are commonly used together. I use a laptop with a 4 core 2.5 GHz CPU with 8 Gigs of ram, and both run fine, except complex Blender scenes may take time to render.

I suggest you give Batch Images a try. Step 1: Add images you want to change background of: Step 2: Change background color: You can also use layers if you want your background to be some kind of pattern or image. And you can resize your images however you want (either before or after background change). Disclaimer: This is a commercial product that I ...

Saw this question as I was searching for Adobe alternatives. Finally had enough of their hands in my pocket and around my throat about 6 months ago. I'm keeping my (paid for) Fireworks CS6 until it dies, but Xara Designer Pro X10 is similar to Fireworks but can do a lot more. I'm not sure why it doesn't get much publicity but I'm really starting to like it a ...

I design user interfaces for Andoid and iOS apps and use a prototyping (can do simple wireframes and full mockups) tool called Axure I've tried quite a few tools in the past and I have found Axure to be the best so far, it's well supported with lots of tutorials and is quite versatile in what it can produce. It allows you to design your layout/wireframe ...

This could also be illustrated with a vector editor like AI or a raster editor like PS, like Rafael mentioned. It is quite similar to a "low poly" illustration, which are quite trendy nowadays. This link has a tutorial on how to create a low poly portrait that can give you an idea of the method. It is quite time intensive and not for the faint of heart, but ...
