Vector-based drawing program
  20 reviews

Inkscape is an illustration editor which has everything needed to create professional-quality computer art. You can use it to make diagrams and illustrations, technical drawings, web graphics, clip art, icons and logos. A collection of hands-on tutorials show you how to combine lines, shapes and text of different types and styles to build up a picture.

A selection of powerful vector graphics editing tools comes as standard. There is excellent support for paths, gradients, layers, alpha transparency and text flow control. An extensive library of filters allow you to apply realistic effects and extensions allow you to work with bitmaps, barcodes and printing marks, amongst other things.

Most of the common vector formats are supported, including PDF, Adobe Illustrator and AutoCAD files, and it has unrivalled support for the SVG web graphics standard.

Between the suggested packages:
* dia: to export Dia shapes;
* libsvg-perl: to import .txt files (txt2svg extension);
* libxml-xql-perl: to use the shadow effect;
* python-uniconvertor: enables several import/export extensions;
* pstoedit: to work with eps files;
* ruby: there are several extensions written in ruby;

The best (and only?) free-and-open-source vector drawing program. It's nearing its 1.0 release, but it still has so much to go before it could reasonably rival the industry-standard tools like Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw or Affinity Designer. Still, I have a special place in my heart for it.

Oh my God! Using new Mint "modern" theme (Win10 like) the icons inside Inkscape just are screwed up! Horrible and unusable icons! To solve it, just go to Mint Wellcome Screen again and choose Mint "Traditional" theme, and the beautiful and very useful original Inskscape icons will be back.

C'est quasiment le seul bon logiciel de dessin vectoriel, mais l'interface est moche, elle n'est plus au goût du jour...

Excelente editor de vectores, muy profesional, fácil de utilizar y con una interfaz bastante intuitiva, realmente es muy competente; la recomiendo para uso personal o de negocios, sus funciones y características lo posicionan muy bien en el campo profesional.

Ein Zeichenprogramm, das ich sowohl für technische Skizzen, als auch für das remixen von Cliparts gerne nutze. Sehr stabil und mit breit unterstütztem SVG-Format!
