I have been designing this week. I have been using my ancient version of Illustrator (7.0.1 - don't laugh - it's prehistoric!!), but it's very cumbersome and not very compatible with Vista. I checked my wallet incase I'd left a few hundred dollars in there, but alas, no. So I did some searching on the web the other night to see if anyone had made a free version of something similar to Illustrator. Turns out there is - Inkscape. I downloaded it, and it seems great so far - easy and intuitive to use, pretty similar functionality to Illustrator, and it even saves in a range of formats including pdf. I did a screen print for you below - pretty geeky, huh!
Anyway, I just thought others might be interested in my find - for those that just want to play, or those who need a stop-gap while they save up for the real thing!
Boring stuff = no one paid me to plug this softie - I found it all by myself! Please do your own homework before downloading anything from the web.
Enjoy the rest of your day ...
