If someone you know wants to create an amazing digital image, here's an amazing tool to try right now: Inkscape - inkscape.org - there're thousands of video tutorials & docs on line. It saves kids & institutions the outrageous per-seat cost of the "professional" tools (which, honestly, are totally unnecessary). With fully Free and open source software like Inkscape, we can remove barriers to education. This is how we achieve digital equity. No corporations required.



I do a lot with Inkscape, but I do offer one caution : If you have a lot of fonts installed on your system ― say, if you have TeXLive installed ― Inkscape may hang up or crash during text-manipulation operations, especially when trying to change fonts.

@publius good to know. Thanks for the tip (I suspect other apps have similar problems).
