software for designing web graphics?


What is the best software to design web graphics like the menus on the left on www.blender.org?

I know some of you will invariably suggest gimp, but to the best of my knowledge I don't think it can draw straight lines .etc

Thanks for your time,

ok, I found out how to draw lines. How can I draw other primitives though?

And how do I do vertical and horizontal lines?

Thanks again.

To draw perfectly straight lines (assuming thats what you mean?):

select a tool, whether its pencil, pen, etc. Even the eraser can be used.

Click where you want the start of the line.

Hold shift, and click where you want the end of the line. Depending on the version you use, you should see a line between where you first clicked, and now.

Whilst still holding shift, left click to place the line. Then release shift.

Dont make the same mistake as me when i first tried this - forgot the drawing colour was on white

well i know how to draw boxes and circles but how would i go about drawing a 'rounded' box?

also what I mean is lines that are only horizontal and vertical not diagonal (or only 45 degree diagonals).
