Software for creating good illustrations for reports and articles?

  1. Oct 30, 2007 #1

    Can someone recommend good software for creating 2D illustrations for articles and reports? I've been using SmartSketch for a while, but I don't really like it.

    ........you've got any OS preferences ...win or *nix? And by "illustrations" what kind of stuff are you actually after .... 2D, 3D graphing of data & functions etc., drawing "things", ... ?

    Try Macromedia Fireworks, they've got trial versions on the site. I use it for websites, page layout. Its the vectors on it which really help.
