If you are thinking about investing in a high end, name brand illustration software, then you should know that all of these large corporations that make professional grade software are switching pricing models to a subscription based model.  It is no longer enough to just pay one high price to use their software, now you have to pay a high price EVERY YEAR and continue to pay it as long as you want that software to work.  And if you stop paying, you can no longer access the files you created until you cough up more money.  We think that is absurd and criminal.  Fire the big giants, and go with this type of software.  Low priced, but fully featured.  This is the full version of Inkscape, the professional vector graphics illustrator, this is not trial or limited in anyway.

Inkscape is a vector graphics editor; it can be used to create or edit vector graphics such as illustrations, diagrams, line arts, charts, logos and complex paintings. Inkscape's primary vector graphics format is Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), however many other formats can be imported and exported.

Inkscape can render primitive vector shapes (e.g. rectangles, ellipses, polygons, arcs, spirals, stars and 3D boxes) and text. These objects may be filled with solid colors, patterns, radial or linear color gradients and their borders may be stroked, both with adjustable transparency. Embedding and optional tracing of raster graphicss is also supported, enabling the editor to create vector graphics from photos and other raster sources. Created shapes can be further manipulated with transformations, such as moving, rotating, scaling and skewing.



Object creation

  • Drawing: pencil tool (freehand drawing with simple paths), pen tool (creating Bézier curves and straight lines), calligraphy tool (freehand drawing using filled paths representing calligraphic strokes)

  • Shape tools: rectangles (may have rounded corners), ellipses (includes circles, arcs, segments), stars/polygons (can be rounded and/or randomized), spirals

  • Text tool (multi-line text, full on-canvas editing)

  • Embedded bitmaps (with a command to create and embed bitmaps of selected objects)

  • Clones ("live" linked copies of objects), including a tool to create patterns and arrangements of clones


Object manipulation

  • Transformations (moving, scaling, rotating, skewing), both interactively and by specifying exact numeric values

  • Z-order operations (raising and lowering)

  • Grouping objects ("select in group" without ungrouping, or "enter the group" making it a temporary layer)

  • Layers (lock and/or hide individual layers, rearrange them, etc; layers can form a hierarchical tree)

  • Alignment and distribution commands


Fill and stroke

  • Color selector (RGB, HSL, CMYK, color wheel, CMS)

  • Color picker tool

  • Copy/paste style

  • A gradient editor capable of multi-stop gradients

  • Pattern fills (bitmap/vectors)

  • Dashed strokes, with many predefined dash patterns

  •  Path markers (ending, middle and/or beginning marks, e.g. arrowheads)


Operations on paths

  • Node editing: moving nodes and Bezier handles, node alignment and distribution, etc.

  • Converting to path (for text objects or shapes), including converting stroke to path

  • Boolean operations

  • Path simplification, with variable threshold

  • Path insetting and outsetting, including dynamic and linked offset objects

  • Bitmap tracing (both color and monochrome paths)


Text support

  • Multi-line text

  • Uses any installed outline fonts, including right-to-left scripts

  • Kerning, letterspacing, linespacing adjustments

  • Text on path (both text and path remain editable)

  • Text in shape (fill shape following stroke)



  • Fully anti-aliased display

  • Alpha transparency support for display and PNG export

  • Complete "as you drag" rendering of objects during interactive transformations

File formats

  • Perfectly compliant SVG format file generation and editing

  • Live watching and editing the document tree in the XML editor

  • PNG, OpenDocument Drawing, DXF, sk1, PDF, EPS and PostScript export formats and more

  • Command line options for export and conversions

  • Model: CA-F20
