      We are looking for an inexpensive alternative to Adobe Illustrator & Adobe InDesign.
      We lost our graphic designer and now it is all up to me. So, I need something easy and less expensive to use for our nonprofit.
      Any Ideas?

      Hello Patrick,

      Welcome to the forums, I have found you can use Scribus as an alternative to InDesign. Tap or click here, and here is a tidbit from their site.

      Why on earth should I use Scribus?

      Because it’s reliable and Free. Free really means Free with an uppercase F. Free is more than just gratis (which is just a side-effect). It means that you are in control of your data and, if you wish, the code of your desktop publishing tool. That’s what smart individuals and companies prefer

      Then for an alternative to Illustrator, I can recommend either Inkscape or Boxy-svg.com which oddly enough is a Google Chrome extension, both Free applications.

        Thanks John, Do you know if any can read files created with ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR & ADOBE INDESIGN. Our designer did give us the files so maybe we can just make some changes and then save them with the new format.

      Hello Patrick,

      Opening In Design files with Scribus tap or click here.

      Inkscape natively supports opening or importing many different formats, such as SVG, SVGZ (gzipped SVG), PDF, EPS, and AI (Adobe Illustrator) formats. And, as of version 0.91, Inkscape can import CDR (CorelDraw) and VSD (Visio) natively.
