20 Tutorials for Creating Amazing Vector Graphics with Inkscape

Inkscape is a vector graphic editor that’s the perfect alternative to Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw, as it doesn’t cost you a penny. It may not be as powerful as its higher priced rivals, but certainly powerful enough to design high quality and beautiful vector graphics.

If you are looking to venture into vector design, we recommend giving Inkscape a try and learn as much as you can about vector art, and then if you need something with more kick, splash out on Illustrator.

    These are great but I still don’t get how to use Inkscape………

  • How do I save my work so I don’t loose my blurs or filters? Even in png format i get only a flat color and no special effect. Kinda frustrating. Svg is not recognized by many other programs. By the way  on the this link there is nothing but junk sites.
