Inkscape – Open Source Graphics Editor
Open source applications are slowly crawling "up the software stack", making proprietary enterprise software development more and more difficult. Inkscape is an open source scalable vector graphics editor affiliated with the Open Clip Art Gallery project.
Inkscape is an open source drawing tool with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, and CorelDraw that uses the W3C standard scalable vector graphics format (SVG). Some supported SVG features include basic shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, and grouping. In addition, Inkscape supports Creative Commons meta-data, node-editing, layers, complex path operations, text-on-path, and SVG XML editing. It also imports several formats like EPS, Postscript, JPEG, PNG, BMP, and TIFF and exports PNG as well as multiple vector-based formats.
Comments from any users would be appreciated. I’ve just downloaded it and will test it out when I get a chance.
