Freehand MX

Like if this guide is helpful
A great vector program to use, and I think easier and better than Illustrator.
If you have Photoshop, this is a great package to use with. Either copy you image from Freehand into Photoshop or File > Export it as a .psd or a number of other formats.
Plus did you know you can do animations with it.

It may be an old package now but it still has some good features in it. Its just ashame that Adobe took over Macromedia. Still at least if you have a copy of MX, I think you might be able to upgrade to Illustrator CS level, but still why would you want to do that when you already have a great program. :o)
