Inkscape is a professional quality vector graphics editor that’s available for free. It runs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux operating systems. Since it’s so accessible, we use it for examples and troubleshooting.
If you run into a snag with a file or an upload, we may suggest that you open it in Inkscape – it’s a way for us to make sure we’re looking at the same thing as we work together.
