Thank you for registering your child or family for GO Graphic.

Before we put you into our billing system, please install Inkscape and confirm that all is well. We don't know anyone who has been unable to install this programme, but we want to know that it is working for you, because you can't do GO Graphic without it!

Go to the Inkscape download page.

Most Windows users will want the "Installer" version. Please note that 7zip indicates a compressed file, and has nothing to do with Windows 7.

Mac users, please note that you may also need X11 (which is part of XQuartz). You may already have it from programmes that you have previously installed. If you are prompted to install it the first time you run Inkscape, you can find a download here.

You should see something like the image above. If everything is working, let us know, and we'll set up your log-in. If you do encounter a problem, let us know, and we'll see what we can do to help.
