A simple yet useful tool for making vector images

Used occasionally for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2018-11-21
Review Source: Capterra

It is a great free tool for graphic artists that are, like me, only starting to work with vector images. It is easy to learn, and fun to use, which has allowed me to make some very smooth and professional-looking designs for my business. If you don't mind it being a bit slow and glitchy at times, I'd really recommend it.

Pros
It is fairly simple to use and provides agreat tutorial with Youtube videos showing all of the different tools available. It looks very simple, but at the same time works with a great path alteration method that allows users to modify shapes and colors to a great capacity. The file then can be exported as png, svg or jpg, and the result will be a Vector that will lose very little if any quality when resized in other apps. It has great functionality tools, like changing the corners of a path from square to rounded, or applying different layers on the image, which gives the user a great amount of freedom. Overall, it is really simple to use and learn, but has extensive uses and can be used to great value.

Cons
Signing up is necessary in order to save files, and the sign-up process gave me a few problems to work, but in the end I managed to do so. It can sometimes glitch and and you have to sign-up again, but luckily it seems to save the file you are working on if this happens. I also dislike the presence of ads in the working environment, but I understand this is the cost of it being a free software. However, the ads are probably changing too frequently, which slows the program speed a lot.

Powerful little online tool! Great for making vectors and other graphics

I have used Vectr to create small graphics for videos to use on our website for our eye clinic. It has worked flawlessly and allowed me to export without issue or watermark, which is great! And no annoying ads trying to get me to upgrade.

Pros
Wow, I am so impressed with this! I needed a simple project and thought back to when I had access to Adobe Illustrator at another job. I didn't want to go through the hassle of downloading a free trial - and certainly not paying for something just for a simple task - and am so glad I found this software! It can do so many of the same things that expensive, professional software can do, and it is free! I also love the tutorials, which are straightforward and you can be finished watching them in 20 minutes!

Cons
There are definitely more things that Adobe Illustrator can do than Vectr, so a professional graphics designer would probably find this insufficient. But for small projects it is a great tool!

Vectrise to the rescue

Used weekly for less than 6 months

I do make vector arts on Vectr but I've always felt like Illustrator is more comfortable.

Pros
It's like an Illustrator, but solely for vector art purpose. It has so many features and thus it is very good software to vectorise any drawing.

Cons
Many I felt this software is not as versatile as Inkscape. It is definitely good, but can be better.

Vectr: Canva on Steroids

Used weekly for free trial
Reviewed 2018-12-18
Review Source: Capterra

I appreciated that the mandatory intro walk-thru was only 90 seconds, but was not necessary. Anyone wanting a graphics program like this would intuit what the left side icons were used for. (Text/Shapes/Circles etc...) They should split up the more advanced concept tutorials into similar length clips, launched only when you click on an item the first time.

Pros
It immediately offers tutorials and makes sure you can get started using a more complicated looking interface than a novice user would be comfortable using. Compared to Canva, with its grab the edges and go interface, Vectr has settings allowing you to know EXACTLY what size each element is, so you could replicate designs and talk intelligently about what has been created, such as image sizes in pixels, or blur depth, etc... It offers Transparent PNG export as a standard feature, while you have to upgrade to paid plans on Canva for that.

Cons
It doesn't appear to be able to create anything more advanced than what an experienced Canva user could do in half the time.

It is the best graphic design software for both beginners and professional. You can learn more about the software by checking out their youtube channel and watch more free tutorial on their website.

Pros
For years now, I have loved the Ubuntu background and I'm always interested in using Microsoft OS and Ubuntu. This is the best tools for designing on Ubuntu in case you can not install Corel Draw on your Ubuntu OS. The best web application for designers.

Cons
It's free and easy to use. This is a free designing application for web users. Design the best Logo, products on Vectr. It's free always.

I am very satisfied with Vectr. It is easy-to-use, functional and professional and allows creating catching frustration-free artworks!

Pros
Vectr is a free vector graphics cross-platform. The editor is available as native app and Saas, making it a powerful web and desktop cross-platform tool. It is extremely intuitive and easy to use. You can learn using it in just a few minutes, even if you are a graphic design newbie. With Vectr you can work with shapes, text and multiple layers, just like with other professional vector imaging apps. It offers the possibility to share vector artworks in real time using a custom reference url.

Cons
You can’t import vector PDFs preserving their features. No local saving available.

Great cross platform way to work and create vector images

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
A great tool to help you with vector images, lots of features and not a large learning curve if you have used other vector image editing software. Can be used online or downloaded to your PC which is good.

Cons
If working online, you’ll need internet access all the time, just something to keep in mind. Be better if there were more options for saving your work.
