Awsome Programs Pt.1

September 8, 2009 at 3:14 am Leave a comment

The next few days, into next week i am going to post free programs, and review them.

The first program i am going to review is a program by the name of InkScape

InkScape is a SVG graphics editor, and is the equivalence of a scaled down illustrator. It is a vector based image editor/creator. If you dont know what svg is, it stands for Scaleable Vector Graphics. Vector, is a way to make images using simple geometric shapes, including polygons, lines, and circles. Which is opposed to a raster graphics image software like photoshop. Photoshop uses raster graphics, which are composed of sqare shaped pixels.

InkScape has a simple layout that can be used by anybody that has used any program like ms paint. Even though it is simple, this program has vast capabilities drawing anything. There is also lots of documentation which hepls you get started. I followed a awsome tutorial, and had created the sweedish flag in 5 minutes. Then i created the US flag, in under 7 minutes.

To finish off this review, InkScape is availible for OSX, Windows, and linux. It is also availible in source files.
