Folks on the GIMP list of course recommend Inkscape. GIMP has excellent 
documentation and a responsive mailing list, probably ditto for 
Inkscape. The bonus for these apps is that they are available for 
multiplatform and cost-effective. If I have a customer who is on a 
budget and is going to have to do some image manipulation this is an 
easy call for me.

I purchased Illustrator years ago, but realized for me it was overkill 
and more drama than I needed, so sold it on eBay. -Bob
