FREE VECTOR graphics editing software INKSCAPE

"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. 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 Postscript, EPS, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF and exports PNG as well as multiple vector-based formats."

You can get a book from Amazon (top reviews) re how to use this.

I myself have just aquired both of these so will report back!

Fair enough it's free Leah, but Illustrator still remains the Industry standard. It may do the same thing but all Clients know is they want Illustrator files cos' that's what they've got. If you are serious about this business then it's worth forking out a bit for it. The same goes for Photoshop.

The present issue was sizing, but I think I've sorted that now with the boxnet file sharing and Xnview. Meanwhile I will be learning the inkscape and if I manage to figure it out then I'll consider the other programs out there.
