GIMP & Canva are great, free photo manipulation / editing softwares.

 

I've also seen folks use Trello, Asana & Google Doc/Sheets for course management and outlining.

I also want to add these Udemy-specific resources, based on questions we see frequently in the community:

Hi @JoyceWSolomon, it always depends on the site, sometimes you'll have to give credit to the author and sometimes you just can use it without credits. For the music, for example, if you use the music from Incompetech.com you'll have to give credit to the author, you'll find what to write right in the info of the song. About the photos, if you'll use the pictures from Pixabay.com, most of the time you will be free to use the photos also for commercial purposes without any credit, you will find about the license of the photo on the right of your screen.

Csnva can also be used for making PowerPoint slides too. There is so much that you can do with Canva. It's more than  just a photo editor.

Hi @ovick_art  Since we function primarily as an on-demand, video-based platform, you’ll need to upload your video files directly to Udemy. In other words, students must be able to view your course lectures on the Udemy platform. You can start creating your course via this link.This section includes extensive resources on how you can create a Udemy course and get started.

Hi guys, 

I recommend you https://storyset.com/ for awesome dynamic illustrations. You can make awesome gif from the free illustrations and online tool. I use it on my powerpoint videos.

Best success to you,

Hi everyone,

Is it really safe to use images/pictures of sites such as Pixabay, Pexel ? I used them for my courses and now I see that you can get sued even though those sites claim to have a CC0 license.

Am I being paranoid ? Anyone has a bad experience from using material from these sites ?
I plan on subscribing to a paying site and replace some of the pictures to be sure everything's legal from now on.

I love Canva and Screenflow x
