Illustrator Tutorial & Tips | Vector Diary Inkscape Inkscape is a free and open source software vector graphics editor. Its goal is to implement full support for the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.1 standard. The word Inkscape is a portmanteau of the words ink and landscape. Inkscape is cross-platform and runs on OS X, Unix-like operating systems, and Microsoft Windows. History Inkscape began in 2003 as a code fork of the Sodipodi project. The fork was led by a team of four former Sodipodi developers (Ted Gould, Bryce Harrington, Nathan Hurst, and MenTaLguY) who identified differences over project objectives, openness to third-party contributions, and technical disagreements as their reasons for forking. Since the fork, Inkscape's new developers changed it greatly: They rewrote it from C into C++; adopted the GTK+ toolkit C++ bindings (gtkmm); redesigned its user interface, and added a number of new features. Since 2005, Inkscape has participated in the Google Summer of Code program. Features Object creation
