Pixia

Pixia is a vector drawing program, that although it does not have a ton of features, the ones it does have are excellent. The regular drawing tool is a bit like the one in JASC Paint Shop Pro, if you have ever tried that, and one of the features that really impressed me was the value noise filter which is outstanding. Lots of layers and masks and stuff. Free of course.

Pixia looks interesting. Thanks for sharing Modron.

The thing I like about pixia is it’s the only free program that actually is properly pressure-sensitive with my graphics tablet.
