Over and again, I have said: A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words.
Fortunately, we can often find the perfect free and copyright-free image online, and I’ll share more and more about that. Yet, sometimes, we need to create an original poster, or we need to create an original infographic with shapes, arrows, etc. There are several free editors to help you do that quite easily, and I’ll also be sharing those. Inkscape is far more than one of those quick, little image editors and/or poster creators. Inkscape is a full, Free Vector Drawing Program, that is quite similar to the commercial Adobe Illustrator, that is rather expensive.
I have a separate blog, where I am sharing an extensive bunch of Inkscape Tutorials. The Following 9 Tutorials Will Get You Started with Inkscape:
