Best free vector program 5 stars by realbull2009250 Jul 30, 2013 (Read all my 60 reviews)
I'm an experienced Adobe Illustrator user, but recently the price of the software is very taxing. Therefore I wanted to try some free vector software. The program is very amazing for a free vector program. I have used about all the features here and you can pretty much do anything that Illustrator can do. The placement of the tools, controls and terms will take time to get use to because they are different from the commercial vector programs. Also there is no support for Adobe plugins, but Inkscape comes with loads of its own filters and a filter editor. It is very fast starting up (on my 64bit OS) and feels very light and doesn't stress my CPU. Overall it's great and easy to use. A beginner may be able to do some things without looking at the manual. No other free vector program on Windows can match it. show Review details
Another fav 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 18, 2011 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I've been using Inkscape since (I believe) it came out, or close. For those who don't know what this is capable of, I suggest browsing around for things made in Inkscape, read tutorials and such and find out just what you can do with this great SVG editor. Scalable vector graphics (SVG) yes, it's a scalable image or (XML)file format. I believe Photoshop has this ability but I don't use it, can't afford it so Inkscape is part of my main graphics collection of Blender, Gimp and Inkscape, pretty much accomplish anything that needs to be done and all free. You can export to .bmp or .png with Inkscape, has 3-d box creation among MANY MANY other options and effects, even text. Believe me, the "what you can do list" is far too numerous to type here, you simply have to read some tutorials and try it. It is a learning curve to be able to use it but well worth the effort after you do. So if you want a FREE, extremely powerful SVG graphics editor, you need look no further. Inkscape is the best in my opinion and probably always will be. show Review details
Excellent bitmap-to-vector application! 5 stars by Martial_Artist May 30, 2011
As a small business owner, I literally could not afford to purchase the high-dollar apps that are the industry norm. Instead, my reliable stand-by, Snapfiles, filled the need. Inkscape is definitely easy-to-use, bridging the gap between graphics in the major word processing apps and those high-dollar apps. Especially useful was the "trace bitmap" function, which allowed me to create vector images. I would recommend Inkscape to anyone who had even the most basic understanding of graphics creation. show Review details
