Another program to try (and completely free) is Inkscape. I think you'll like it once you play with it. Almost has the capability of painting like PS, but it is truly vector. Files can be exported as eps so they can be imported into most other applications. Natively, it uses SVG.

Lightbulb Re: My Illustrator hates me!

While I have access to the entire Adobe CS2 suite, Stone Create, etc., etc., I do my vector and publication work with Canvas X in association with Photoshop. Follow the "READ MORE ABOUT CANVAS!" link on this page to see what I was doing with Canvas before publishing my current ezine (I still use Canvas for layout and export of my new ezine to PDF).

Users agree Canvas is much easier to use than evil Illustrator, with the added benefit of being able to place and edit images on the page as if you were in Photoshop, publish multiple page documents, etc. in a unique integrated environment.

The bad news is, Canvas was purchased about 4 years back by the folks who bring you ACDSee, and they don't seem to have a clue what to do with it! Canvas hasn't been updated for a year now, so we wait and see.

Canvas 8 was offered for free last year on UK magazine CDs, so if you can find it, you'll be in good shape.

Inkscape and other such freebies have some promise, but you get what you pay for ;-).
