Below is a list of amazing software tools that I have been using for various purposes. The order is quite random. Feel free to contact me to add to the list.

Free apps

Inkscape – amazing free software package to handle vectored images (.svg etc)

IrfanView – one of the best image viewers. Great to resize, resample or rescale images

WinSCP – great FTP program, offers many useful features

OBS studio – wonderful video recording software! Easy to operate, allows for chromakey settings so you can record greenscreen videos. I have used this software for most of my teaching videos.

VLC media player – VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.

Paid apps

Airy YouTube Downloader – wonderful app to download YouTube videos. This paid program offers reliable downloading, in contrast to many free sites and apps that are either confusing to use or add watermarks or virusses.
