Do you need a free replacement for more expensive Vector Graphics software?
Create your graphics with Inkscape!
Inkscape is a vector graphics editor originally developed for Linux and released under the GNU General Public Licence as free software. The Inkscape site describes it as “An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.”
Inkscape provides a wide range of basic vector graphics editing capabilities and can be used for web graphics, technical diagrams, icons, creative art, logos, maps, banners, cartoons and more. Unfortunately Inkscape does not support SVG animation (yet) and can only be used for static 2-D graphics.
Inkscape is available for Linux, Mac OS and Windows computers. The software is updated on a regular basis with new developments being incorporated all the time.
After using Inkscape for over 5 years for doing everything for fun cartoons, to the banner ads for my websites, I can highly recommend it.
