Inkscape

If only there were a free version of Illustrator … or FreeHand … or CorelDraw. Inkscape aspires to be all these things and has lots of support. You must have X11 installed on your Mac in order to run this Unix-based program.

  1. Although I do much of my drawing and image manipulation with CorelDraw, I have Inkscape set as the default program to handle SVG files. Also, you may be surprised to know that both programs are excellent at editing content in PDF files, something I end up needing quite often. I definitely recommend this program.

  2. Although I prefer Xara on Linux, this is the best vector illustration tool in the open source world for Mac and Windows. I bought a copy of Corel Draw years ago and my wife bought a copy of PS Illustrator when she was in art school – I used this exclusively on the Mac and Windows.
