To be a good graphic designer, you must be adept at using the profession’s tools, which for most designers today are the ones in the proprietary Adobe Creative Suite.
However, there are times that open source tools will get you out of a jam. For example, imagine you’re a commercial printer tasked with printing a file created in Adobe InDesign. You need to make a simple change (e.g., fixing a small typo) to the file, but you don’t have immediate access to the Adobe suite. While these situations are admittedly rare, open source tools like desktop publishing software Scribus and text editor Gedit can save the day.
Portable Apps lets you access all your go-to apps anywhere, anytime—regardless of whether you are using your own computer or not.
