  • Audacity: An audio editor with recording and sound editing features.
  • GIMP Low Frequency Plugin: A plugin for the GIMP which lets you remove low frequency brightness and color differences to make tiled images.
  • GIMP Resynthesizer Plugin: A plugin for the GIMP which allows you to try and remove objects from images, filling in the blank spot.

As per Titi's suggestion, I've added a few links to relevant threads, but I'm not really sure what all we need.  Feel free to suggest some links of topics on the board and elsewhere on the web that should go here and one of us will add them.

Massive change to merge links in the FAQ and this topic into this one. The latter has been unsticked. Changes include conversion to list, checking all links for validity, adding many new links including Wiki and Glest guide individual pages, added descriptions to the tools, and improved categorization. It can always be expanded, though, so feel free to post any changes you think should be done.
