If you’re a beginner in the field of arts and design, one of the important things you need is a design software. It can be your reliable partner in creating a variety of stuff such as logos, T-shirt designs, greeting cards, posters, and so much more.

Here are my recommended graphic design software applications for artists, both amateur and professional.

Sumopaint
This browser-based image editor has standard graphic design tools such as gradients, cloning, brushes, pencils, and shapes. You’ll enjoy using this software because it loads fast and is light. Your computer just needs to have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.
