Tool chain for graphics?

Hi,

how are you guys doing your Graphics. Right now, I draw some using Open Office, then I use Paint .Net in order to get a transparent Background and finaly I need to save them in various sizes.

Any ideas how I could improve my tooling? Any ideas for scripting the resize step?

Thanks,
Thomas.

For vector graphics: Inkscape.
For bitmap graphics:

  • painting: MyPaint, Krita,
  • correcting/editing: GIMP (or your Paint.NET from what I gather about it)
