Cloud App of the Week: Inkscape for Vector Graphics on iPad and Chromebook
Browser-based Inkscape is an incredibly useful vector graphics editor available on rollApp’s cloud (enjoy drawing on iPad) and in the Chrome Web Store (perfect for Chromebook owners). It’s used in many different ways from creative art and web graphics to technical diagrams and navigation development.
If you are used to working with Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw, Inkscape comes with similar capabilities and uses the Scalable Vector Graphics file format supporting many advanced SVG features: markers, clones, alpha blending.
Still, the application is more focused on popular vector graphics editing capabilities, including transparency, gradients, node editing, and pattern fills.
Inkscape stores its graphics in a vector format but it also can import and display bitmap images. For working with files – right through your browser – you’ll able to connect your rollApp account to Google Drive, Dropbox and Box.
The Inkscape developers are working on the new powerful version of Inkscape 0.49. Stay tuned!
