Inkscape offers a Layers palette that while, arguably, is less important than the layers features of some popular pixel-based image editors, is a useful tool that does offer users some advantages.

Adobe Illustrator users may consider it a little under powered in so far as it doesn't apply every single element to a layer. The counter argument, though, is that the greater simplicity of the Layers palette in Inkscape actually makes it more user-friendly and easier to manage. As with many popular image editing applications, the Layers palette also offers the power to combine and blend layers in creative ways.
