Sunday, July 10, 2011 | Share to:
When someone does not need, like, or can not even afford a powerful graphics processing software, then InkScape would probably be their first choice. Inkscape is one of the favorite free vector graphics editor among designers. It is a cross-platform vector graphics editor. You can use it on Windows, Mac, and Unix-like operating systems. The aspect that makes InkScape so popular is that it is under active development, and new features are being added constantly.

Inkscape is 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 supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more.

Some of the vector objects that InkScape supports:
Paths, Rectangles, 3D Boxes, Ellipses, Clones, Spirals, Text, export images as raster/bitmap images, connectors (like ones used in flowcharts), spiro splines to create curves, and more.
