Software that has Functionality and flexibility as well as other questions Over time I have learned that there are many different free online design programs that you can either use online or download . As a beginner I am looking for free online software that is not only the easiest to use and to learn but something that has the most features that will enable a user to have the most flexibility overall. I have not only been looking as well as trying out various software design programs , I was going to use one called VECTR until I found out that the text cannot be bended / the ability to shape the text around certain objects. Some of the “things that I am looking for in a good but easy software are - the ability bend text – 3D - as well as other use full functions that I have yet to discover. There are some things am not too sure about - the main ones are - what is a transparent background - & what are layers. How important are these for doing basic designs on T-shirts and other clothing items. Anyone who can answer my questions and recommend any software it would be great.
