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.
