What is Vectr?

"Vectr is a free vector graphics design software used to create graphics easily and intuitively. It's a powerful web and desktop cross-platform tool. "

Vectr is a free collaborative vector graphics editor, for both web & desktop, that aims to help everyone create vector graphic designs easily and intuitively, using its simple yet powerful web and desktop cross-platform tool. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned pro, or just getting your feet wet in design for the first time — you’ll be up and running in no time flat.

Vectr is #Powerful, Yet #Free and #Simple

The most active users of Vectr are currently not designers but software engineers, project managers, bloggers and social media specialists — those in need to deal with graphic editing in their everyday work and can’t afford to waste time/money for overcomplicated paid tools.

With this launch we are introducing a bunch of new features and updates:
- Rebuilt / revamped UI
- Better layer hiding / locking
- Improved pen tool
- New desktop logo
- Crushed ~100 bugs

Vectr is #Social

Designing is a social activity — people love sharing what they’ve created and want to receive immediate feedback. Vectr understands this, which is why Vectr users are able to post their projects directly to Facebook or Twitter with a unique URL that allows others to edit the copy of the project as their own, and why over the coming year we’ll be building social collaboration directly into the editor.

Vectr is not only completely free, but also one of the only editors available which are cross-platform — on the web or as a desktop download — on Mac, Windows, Chromebook, or Linux. Up to now, most of these platforms were stuck without alternatives to Adobe’s bloated/complicated products.

Vectr is #Ambitious

For the past year, Vectr’s been updated regularly every two weeks since our “accidental beta” last September. As you’ll see in Vectr’s Open Roadmap, we’ve got some big plans over the coming year, including:

Built-in Marketplace & Community — create, share, or sell designs assets with others on the platform.

Google-docs Style Collaboration — Vectr’s a real-time, collaborative graphics editor. It’s like Google-docs, except that it also supports some offline editing if you’re ever without a connection. We’ll ship this tech later this year, but it’s mostly built so we’d be happy to demo it if you’re interested!

Built-In Version Control — no more threads of email attachments with “designversion1”, “designversion2”. Just send someone a link to your Vectr document, and you can view every version of that design in one place.

Vectr scored 87/100 in the Graphic Design category. This is based on user satisfaction (84/100), press buzz (54/100), recent user trends (falling), and other relevant information on Vectr gathered from around the web.

The score for this software has improved over the past month. What is this?
