Freeware:Google these for download sites. Of course, terms, conditions and versions may change.

1) A free alternative to Mathematica and MATLAB, etc is SciLab. Another is the web site wolframalpha.com. You can also estimate integrals quickly with Excel.

2) A free alternative to Photoshop, etc is gimp.
