So, what is Inkscape?

Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics program with similar capabilities as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Xara. Although somewhat less powerful compared to some of the paid software out there, Inkscape has a plethora of features with a simple, clean and easy to understand UI. Go give it a try, you won't regret it!

Inkscape Download

And remember, Draw Freely!
My article "A Crash Course in Inkscape" has just been updated with some minor corrections and suggestions from Alexandre Prokoudine of Libre Graphics World libregraphicsworld.org. (The shameful thing was that his email was buried under a pile of spam.)

This is geared towards Inkscape newbies and those curious about the open-source vector program. The goal is to quickly get new users up and running in Inkscape. I cover all of the basics and then some.

Also I was told by Prokoudine that Inkscape could export to Gimp's XCF format. So far In Mac, Windows, and Fedora, my copies of Inkscape are missing that option. If you know of an easy (it doesn't have to be easy) way to enable Inkscape's ability to export to XCF, send me a message or a link.


Thanks!

Hmm, just submitted some art but it didn't give me the option of adding a note to say it was made in Inkscape.

I check the artist's description on each deviation for that info (which—thankfully—you did). :)

I have been using the exported bitmap to upload to Deviantart, but is the raw SVG file type supported yet so i can share it for others to download?

Hey!

Though dA won't display the svg directly, you can post the bitmap image with the source file as a download.

Submit art > 'Choose a file to upload' (select the svg) > click edit icon in top right corner of box > click 'change preview file' and select the bitmap file you'd normally upload as a standalone.
