Owing to my web site project, I've gotten to know the GIMP fairly well in recent days. Today, I tried out Inkscape, the vector counterpart to the GIMP. Pretty neat, I must say. I think it's a good CorelDraw substitute. A bit of a memory hog, though.

Yes, this is a suman post.


  1. Vector? I was under the impression that this was the Painter-clone counterpart of Photoshop-clone GIMP. I believe it was actually made by some people who were involved with Painter.

  2. From the Inkscape web site:

    Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.

    But it sure would be nice to have a Painter clone, though.
