Software (mostly free)

Post by Witness »

A repository for useful or interesting stuff, and questions about same.


I'll start with NASA's software catalog:

Not that I really need "crew and life support", but I've started looking into the image processing stuff. Perhaps you'll find something for your own interests.

You can download the catalog: https://software.nasa.gov/NASA_Software ... 019-20.pdf

Free Photoshop in your browser, sorta: https://www.photopea.com/

From a quick test:
  • very similar UI and shortcuts;
  • all the layer stuff;
  • only 8 bit images;
  • no ads with an adblocker;
  • has even Fourier transform to get rid of repeating patterns:

A nice hack I got from Reddit: to watch YT videos, just drag & drop the link on VLC (then you'll have all its features).

Yeah, thanks, but for some reason it doesn't want to work on my laptop (desktop is OK). :x

There's a guide here, if somebody needs it: https://www.vlchelp.com/play-youtube-vi ... ia-player/

Dunno if it's worthy, didn't try any out, but perhaps it can interest retro-gamers:
