I have an image with some dimensions. But I need to add one or two dimensions to it. I mean lines with circles on their ends and arrows on their other ends and with a letter in the middle of the lines. Which Linux program would be good for it? I need something free and small.

Here is the image:

    Adding two dimensions, you have a 4D jacket. Many quantum theorists and particle accelerators would be very happy if they could examine it. :-)

  • How could you add "one or two dimensions" to it? I tought you want some software tool which generates a 3d-looking image from your 2d one. But it is not as you have shown in your image link.

  • Ok so I want to add lines with arrows and numbers placed on their middle. Forget dimensions... knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad/learn-explore/caas/…

    I am sorry, but your question is incomprehensible. The capability to formulate comprehensible questions is a requirement to use the site network.

This looks like an ideal task for Inscape.

It is free, GPL 2.

It runs on Linux.

It's considerably small, 107 MB download size. That's less than half of Affinity Deisgner, a comparable commercial product. So it should fit on older PCs with little disk space available.

The startup time is certainly not very fast, but once started it's ok. It's a program for creating vector graphics. That is: you can edit the graphics later, whereas in a pixel graphic, your changes are more of a permanent nature. Thus, changing the graphics will be easier.

Regarding simple: well, it has a lot of options, but you needn't use them. You'll find arrows and circles quickly.
