Free alternatives to Adobe Illustrator? - Mac Software Discussions on AppleInsider Forums Toggle navigation All Forums Recent Posts Sign In Free alternatives to Adobe Illustrator? guartho Posted: August 31, 2005 8:17AM in Mac Software edited January 2014 I am looking for a legitimately free vector graphics program for OSX. I couldn't find one, but I didn't really know what I was looking for either. Basically, I'm looking for a GIMP for vector graphics. Anyone heard of such a thing?

Reply 3 of 7 jon-e-orange Posts: 104member September 4, 2005 4:39AM I was wondering this as Illustrator is the only app I use that I haven't found a shareware or freeware alternative for.I would say that gimp is more a photoshop alternative (as a far as I know) it doesn't do vector based drawing tools.
