As a content creator software tools are my best friend. It’s the center of all I do.
These are 5 type of tools that I would recommend anybody to have and know how to use.
1. Audio editor
An audio editor such as Adobe audition is my best friend. It helps me clean up interview, pick out quotes for features and mix down podcasts and other projects.
Investing in an audio editor will make the world of difference to your videos and podcast.
2. Video editor
If you create tons of videos, whether for YouTube, Facebook or otherwise investing in a video will be necessary.
You can cut out mistakes, add titles, lower thirds and other graphics to polish off your video.
You can also cut and splice things together. Add music and other elements.
Adobe premier, Vegas pro, Wonderware fillmora and final cut pro are good options in this category.
3. Photo editing tool
Instagram has increase the use of photo online. So having an editor to tweak your photos will be good investment.
From creating flyers, info graphics and croping images a good photo editor is the next tool on this list.
You also use it to create images for blog post, book covers, carousel for Instagram and so on.
Photoshop, gimp, abode lightroom and affinity photo are great options in this category.
4. Desktop publisher
Desktop publishers can help you create books. Though you can do certain things in word or Google docs these tools can help you create pdf documents and fillable forms.
If you are looking to create ebooks, a desktop publisher will come in handy.
Affinity publisher, Adobe indesign and scribus are good options to look at.
5. Vector graphic
