Inkscape Vector Graphics Editor in Ubuntu

Sponsored Link
Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Supported SVG features include shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns, and grouping. Inkscape also supports Creative Commons meta-data, node editing, layers, complex path operations, bitmap tracing, text-on-path, flowed text, direct XML editing, and more. It imports formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and others and exports PNG as well as multiple vector-based formats.

Inkscape's main goal is to create a powerful and convenient drawing tool fully compliant with XML, SVG, and CSS standards. We also aim to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development

    Hello Daniel,
    The Admin is right; the purpose of this website is primarily software installation issues, tips & tutorials, for this website to be able to post relevant and credible tutorials about the softwares themselves, you would typically require a community if not a collection of domain experts who are well versed in the softwares and the domains they serve. Tall order if you ask me.
    In any case; this website is on my list of “visit everyday ubuntu sites” and I love the theme (colors and layout) – very pleasing.

    It’s good to have those opensource apps like inkscape and gimp eventhough I still prefer Illustrator (and Photoshop) but as time goes by they might get better. 🙂
