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. More Info »
Inkscape features Spiro curves (Cornu spirals)
Tweak tool - Move, Move In-Out, Move Jitter, Scale, Rotate, and Duplicate or Delete
Vector drawing methods for most of the work using the Bézier & node tools
