Inkscape 0.91
Create everything from logos and diagrams to complex 3D designs

Inkscape is an open source SVG-based vector graphics editor that comes with a host of high-end, professional features.

You get a lengthy list of drawing tools, for instance, quick ways to create rectangles and squares, circles and arcs, spirals, polygons, 3D boxes, Bezier curves, straight lines and more. But there are also interesting sculpting and painting options, a lengthy list of path creation and editing options, and some very powerful text tools.

In common with other SVG editors, you're able to scale objects in a click or two, group and ungroup them, apply colours, gradients and strokes as required, align and combine objects, trace bitmaps and more.

And there's direct support for many advanced SVG features, like alpha blending, markers and clones.

There is a price to pay for this, as the learning curve is a little steep: you'll need to invest plenty of time and effort before you've properly mastered everything that Inkscape can do. If you need a good vector editor then it's well worth the effort, though, as Inkscape provides many of the same features as Illustrator for no cost at all.

What's new in 0.91?

- Cairo rendering for display and PNG export
- OpenMP multithreading for all filters
- C++ code conversion
- Major improvements in the Text tool
- Measure tool
- Type design features [1],[2]
- Symbol library and support for Visio stencils
- Cross platform WMF and EMF import and export
- Improved support for Corel DRAW documents, Visio importer
- Support for real world document and page size units, e.g. millimeters
- Numerous usability improvements
- Native Windows 64-bit build

Verdict:

It can be a little complicated, but take the time to master the basics and Inkscape will give you plenty of vector editing features and functionality

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
