Karbon is a vector-based drawing application. It allows artists to create complex drawings without losing image quality when zooming in on, or resizing the drawing. Graphic design ideas can be quickly and easily transformed into high quality illustrations with Karbon.
Karbon is useful for creating cartoons drawings or editing clip art which often needs to be resized to fit in a document or on a poster.
Karbon uses the standard Scallable Vector Graphics (SVG) for its file format.
