    • Entirely free. Easier to use than Inkscape, better with vectors than Krita, and available on more platforms than Sketch. It's a little slow and gummy when you've made a very complicated picture, but it's honestly the best possible alternative I've found. Thank you, and thanks to Gravit. rvanarsdaleMay 2017 Disagree   Agree

Solid and reliable - handles large vector files with ease. Love inkscape too but that falls over when you have big files.

I think it's great, i have use ilustrator for quite some time now and i'm very happy with it, easy to handle and very useful, it's a bit pricy but I think it is worth it

I still cheer for an open source, free or lower-priced vector graphics editor to come by and usurp Adobe Illustrator, but for now it's the de facto standard. I like it very much, but the price (even if I skip a generation) can be a little tough to swallow.
