Graphics Software

Graphics software provide an opportunity for scrollers to create their own scroll saw patterns. Graphics programs can be classified as either vector based or raster based graphics. Most graphics software will focus on one form or the other. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Price will vary among software developers from free community programed software to professional graphics suites.
