Inkscape

UniversalInkscape 是一套向量繪圖軟體,就如同您會聯想到的 Adobe Illustrator 或 Macromedia FreeHand,只不過 Inkscape 是個免費的軟體,且使用 W3C 制訂的標準 Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 檔案格式。

Supported SVG features include shapes, paths, text, markers, clones, alpha blending, transforms, gradients, patterns, and grouping. Inkscape also supports Creative Commons meta-data, node editing, layers, complex path operations, bitmap tracing, text-on-path, flowed text, direct XML editing, and more. It imports formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and others and exports PNG as well as multiple vector-based formats.

Inkscape 也可匯出成 Postscript 的 EPSPS 等格式,此外它還是個跨平台的軟體,Mac、Windows、Linux 各版本皆有,而要留意的是,若要使用 Inkscape,您的系統上必須有安裝 X11。若您需要做向量繪圖,除了昂貴的商業軟體外,可以試試免費的 Inkscape,目前最新版本為 0.44。
