This is another article that is part of my Ubuntu 13.10 install. I didn’t have to do anything special for these programs. I just installed them from the Software Center.
I use these programs to work with photos and pictures. Gimp is the main one. They are all easily installed from the Software Center.
Xournal is another one that I have used on occasion. It is for notes, but I have used it to update PDFs — filling out forms.
I use these programs to work with Vector drawings. Inkscape is the main one.
These are the programs I use for playing and editing video:
- mplayer — nice general video/music player from the command line
- vlc — video player
- kdenlive — video editor
- openshot — video editor
- avidemux (GTK+): Great for converting video, for example see Why Can’t the Users Just Rotate Their Screen?
- cheese — nice for testing to make sure the webcam works
