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;

Excellent! But i am talking about the latest version from the PPA: version 1.0.2. This version (1.0.2 and up) has HSL defined with 0-360, 0-100, 0-100 values. Much better. And many other improvements. And less bugs. But you have to trust this PPA... You can get the latest here: Click on DOWNLOAD > Current Version. Click on GNU/Linux. Click on Personal Package Archive for Ubuntu. Follow instructions.

Does anyone know how to get 1.0.1 version? And when it will be available right from the mint software manager? | Quelqu'un sait comment obtenir la version 1.0.1 ? Et quand va-t-elle être dispo directement du gestionnaire de logiciels ?

Works fine. Totally stable and fast. I migrate to Inkscape about 5 years ago. If you came from Corel, you will need to spend some time googling, but it will be worth it, in a fell projects you will be very confortable. Now there are great tutorials on Youtube, and it will make the transition quite easy.

Das beste Vektorgrafikprogramm, was ich kenne. Ich arbeite schon länger damit. Die neue Version 1.0 ist eine deutliche Verbesserung in Funktion und Geschwindigkeit. Ich finde es einfach PERFEKT !

Get the new uptodate version.. this one is a bit old. It's extremely powerful but sometimes functionality is hidden under submenus. Great for simple / complex projects. Save your work regularly because it can crash once in a while!

Crashes occasionally. Very powerful tool though.

O Inkscape é um programa incrível. Pra mim, que migrei do Corel pra ele, não tive praticamente nenhum problema e quase não senti a diferença. A interface é muito boa, algumas das funções são incrívelmente mais funcionais e ele não perde em quase nada para outros programas. Alguns contras são: a interface não é muito customizável as vezes passa a sensação de não se adaptar muito a ferramenta que está sendo usada no momento. Faz falta uma ferramenta de corte de imagens assim com um lab parecido com o do Corel para tratar imagens de forma mas rápida e imediata. Já os prós: É bastante leve, tem bibliotecas que implementam funções absurdamente incríveis, é bem fácil de se adaptar a ele.

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.
