Inkscape is an open source software for managing vector graphics with the capabilities of well-known software’s such as The illustrator, CorelDraw, etc… It’s based on the standard vector graphics format (SVG).

The program supports many options of vector graphics, has an elegant design and appearance in it interface. It is very easy to install and to use. It saves resources as much as possible. It has a Multilanguage support which show the software development advances.

It is a program with a GPL licenses, is focused in Linux operating systems, but it also provides the capacity option to be used in windows.

As a detail that we can mention, when the program is installed automatically detects the language of our operating system and installs the software in the same language, if we want to use any other language we need to implement commands, in the use of Microsoft Windows operating system it has a guide showing us that we need to create a .bat file to run the software in an specific language. This is a disadvantage because is not as easy as going to an option on the menu and proceed with the desired selection; we are forced to apply commands. The website gives us all the commands and information necessary to proceed with any change.

Mark Jacobs If you no longer have the Corel Draw CD but many CDR files, then Inkscape can open them. You can edit the files and then to Inkscape format for further development later. For a free product, this is excellent!
