Karbon is an excellent graphics tool to create vector drawings which are also called SVG. Karbon is powered by a QT user interface and developed by KDE. Karbon is an integral part of KDE graphics design. SVG graphics are highly scalable and take less size on both local and remote disks. They are the preferred type of graphics for the web. When it comes to icons, most vendors prefer SVG icons. Karbon supports ODG, SVG, WPG, WMF, and EPS formats to create and produce vector drawings.
