Inkscape is a free program that graphics editors can use to create vectors. What are vectors? Vectors are scalable graphics that will not blur when you resize them. This software was created by a team of talented and dedicated enthusiasts, to rival and serve as an alternative to Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, and Data X.

Another thing that sets Inkscape apart is the fact that it uses an open XML-based W3C standard, as its native format.

Why you should use Inkscape

You can use this software to create logos and diagrams, as well ass complex 3D designs. Inkscape is an SVG-based vector graphics editor and with many professional features. There are quick ways of creating rectangles and squares, circles, arc, spirals, polygons, 3D boxes, Bezier curves, straight lines and so much more, through this software's long list of drawing tools. You are also provided with white interesting sculpting tools, painting options, and some exquisite text tools. SVG-based editing programs are known to be able to scale objects with one or two clicks, group and un-group these objects, apply colours to them, gradients and strokes as you require and also trace bitmaps. This is essentially Inkscape's basic functions, as it falls into this same category.

It is free to download and compatible with Windows, Mac, GNU and Linux Operating Systems. This multi-feature software comes at a price though. It has quite a steep learning curve, and you will need to invest a lot of time and effort before you can properly master what Inkscape can do, that is if you are just a beginner. Professionals do not have to worry about mastering it, but will have to invest expensively to own a license for this very handy graphics editor.

Inkscape can read and write pipes. This makes it possible for you to process data without using temporary files. You can write image data to standard output and convert it directly to JPEG, as well as letting you read from standard input and also made possible is a full processing chain by reading and writing to pipes. It is important to note that this inkscape version will no longer work on Windows XP and Vista anymore. It is also multilingual as it is available in different languages.
