Inkscape is brilliant

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm in the midst of creating a local Linux 
| Users Group and I'm cobbling together a quick 
| logo using a Creative Commons photograph, GIMP 
| for making the image properly black and white, 
| and Inkscape for setting the type (FreeSans) 
| and bringing all the elements together.
| Every time I use Inkscape it is a joy and a 
| pleasure. In terms of usability and interface, 
| it is so much nicer than Adobe Illustrator (and 
| I used Illustrator every day for 10 years!). It 
| is also so much cheaper. Like, Free.

4 Resources for the Powerful Inkscape Open Source Drawing Tool

,----[ Quote ]
| Among advanced open source graphics tools, GIMP has a lot of fans, and there
| are many free online resources available for it, but if you're looking for a
| drawing and illustration tool that can compete with Adobe Illustrator and is
| especially good for logos and splashy still graphics, give Inkscape a try.


Inkscape: one essential vector graphics application

,----[ Quote ]
| Inkscape is my vector graphics application of choice. It can do a wide
| variety of vector drawing tasks with relatively little effort. It uses the
| now-standard SVG vector format as its native format, and it has become very
| extensible through a simple âstream-basedâ, language-agnostic scripting
| system. On modern systems, it is reasonably responsive (though not the
| fastest), and the interface layout is well-balanced and fairly intuitive.
| Since I use Inkscape every day and itâs clearly my favorite vector graphics
| tool, thereâs really no way my review of it can be unbiased. So I wonât
| pretend to be. Instead, Iâll just try to be as complete as I can about the
| more unique features of the program.


Linux Fund Supports Inkscape

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Fund has partnered with Inkscape developer Milosz Derezynski to improve
| the text dialog of this open source vector graphics editor. This work will
| improve Inkscape's usability by enhancing its text tool to provide numeric
| control over kerning and other essential text attributes.


Manipulate Vector Images with Open Source Inkscape

,----[ Quote ]
| All platforms: Inkscape is an open source vector editing program. If you are
| looking for a free alternative to the Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape has a host
| of features that make it worth taking for a spin.



Inkscape Drawing Program Brings Joy to Many

,----[ Quote ]
| Inkscape is a free vector drawing program that brings joy and robust drawing
| tools to millions of people who could never afford Adobe Illustrator. You can
| use Inkscape for fun or for thousands of different practical purposes
| including designing your own business card, CD cover, advertising layout, and
| countless other tasks.


Inkscape Tutorial - The Sun

,----[ Quote ]
| Half of the battle in graphic design is working smarter, not harder. I've
| done some tutorials for Gimp which push that tool to its limits, but too many
| folks focus on Gimp and forget that we have a whole arsenal of power graphics
| tools on the Linux desktop. Here is one image which would have been a pain to
| do in Gimp, but a snap in Inkscape.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
