Inkscape - Path options
Inkscape - Path options

Inkscape let you play with the shapes you created. There are different path options that let you merge, cut, cut parts of the object. The options are the following represented with some samples.



Union Ctrl++
Merges the selected objects.

Difference CTRL+-
The overlapped part (upper object) is removed.

Interselection CTRL+*
Leaves the area where the 2 objects overlapped.

Exclusion CTRL+^
Opposite of Interselection.


Division CTRL+/
The overlapping part of the upper object is cut from the one below it.



All the options work with paths drawn with Pen Tool too.

I wouldn't say it's better, it's just different.
You can do the same in Inkscape and in PS, but since you got used to PS already, it would take longer time to get used to Inkscape. Same for me, I prefer to use PSP most of the time due to time issues. Very Happy

However, if you need vector files or something that might need to be scaled up in the future it's better to use Inkscape. If you work with large files from the beginning, and just resize in the end when you provide the requester the final images, you're fine. Smile
(Also, if you don't want to learn another software in the future, but you're sure you'll work with vectors, you can think about learning Adobe Illustator. That's more known and widespread software for vectors.)
