New review: Inkscape

I retract anything negative I previously wrote about Inkscape.

J'adore Inkscape.
I tried GIMP, but was not comfortable with how it looked.  Basically, Inkscape looks closer to Photoshop than GIMP does...in my opinion.  I was using Photoshop Elements 3.0 (ancient), but had to find a new photo editing program since that version is not compatible with Alice - my lovely, new laptop.  Inkscape was the answer.

If you do any of these tasks with Photoshop, then Inkscape is for you:
-adjusting image levels
-working with layers
-creating SVGs - bonus to all the Cricut users
-adjusting transparency levels

Try it out and see for yourself.  The worse thing that could happen is you have to take a few minutes to uninstall this FREE program.

Last words:  Photoshop still rocks my socks, but Inkscape is a good alternative for simple tasks.
