Publisher description for Inkscape Portable

Inkscape Portable program icon

Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, ALPHA blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. We also aim to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development. The Gaussian Blur filter in Inkscape can also be applied to achieve a variety of different lighting effects. This image by Chromakode, based on a photo, demonstrates the possibilities for volumetric lighting and dense fog effects. Note the Diffuse glow at the edges of the silhouette, and the haloing where the light shines through the arms (the Halo shapes are visible in the outline). Blurring is also used to give the hair a low-detail painterly effect. A new powerful extension, Pattern along path, allows you to bend, repeat and/or stretch a pattern object (which can be a path or a group) along a "skeleton" path. This makes it easy to create a variety of patterned/shaped strokes, or smoothly bend a text line along a path.
