- Autodesk Maya P.L.E.

Graphic artists and students will get an opportunity to try out Maya's capabilities with Maya's non-commercial software. It's a great way to learn how to create animations, 3D digital images, use effects and render graphics, especially for those who want to improve their skills and have a career in digital design. The complete commercial version of Maya is used by game developers, film makers, and graphic artists so this free non-commercial version is too good to pass up.
- Filter Free
Filter Free is a digital filter design software that is free to download. Digital filters are commonly used to filter analog signals and improve on the quality of that signal. Analog signals are digitized by being sampled into numeric sequences and then mathematically processed to redevelop the signal into a new analog signal.
This freeware functions as a free version of the commercial software Filter Solutions. Although the free version has limited functionality, it is still an effective program. Filter Free is available for download at their Web site.
This free software helps enhance digital photos. It can recreate your recent images into photos that may have been taken many years ago before the digital age. Using sepia, duotone or black and white you can explore different effects for your digital images and create artistic pictures.
Some free digital design software are created by commercial software companies as a trial version with limited functions so consumers can explore the software before purchasing the complete version. Although they may have limited functions they are still as effective as the commercial releases.
