Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jan 31, 2012

Inkscape is a popular open-source vector graphics editor that has earned high praise for its powerful features. Inkscape Portable takes these powerful features on the go, letting users store the program on a USB drive or other portable device for access anywhere.

Like its installable cousin, Inkscape Portable is not for beginners, unless you're a beginner who's ready to put some effort into learning about vector graphics. An array of toolbars line three sides of the interface, and they can be overwhelming if you don't already have some idea of what you're looking at. Experienced artists, however, will be pleased to find an array of useful features, such as a pen tool for creating Bezier curves; rectangle, ellipse, and polygon tools; and a 3D rectangle creator. Inkscape Portable also includes a full complement of filters and effects, such as shadow, blur, and glow effects, textures, and Alpha channel editing. Clipping and masking features let users conceal portions of their artwork for sophisticated layered effects. An online Help file provides detailed information about each of the program's features, and Inkscape Portable also comes with a set of tutorials to help new users get a feel for how it works. Overall, we think that Inkscape Portable will please fans of Inkscape who want to keep the program handy, and it's also worth a look for other graphic artists--or aspiring graphic artists--who could use a suite of powerful and portable vector editing tools.

Inkscape Portable requires no installation.
