It isn't free, but if you want beautiful figures that are easy to make and
take full advantage of MacOS X's PDF graphics and high quality fonts get
Omnigraffle.  In addition to the usual complement of vector graphics, you
can also export to bitmap formats for web publications.  Trust me, you
won't be disappointed.  I found it totally worth the price and the
Omnigroup is a great software development house.
