Oil Refinery Process Drawings, Objects
Typical newbie question, I guess..

I've done a fair amount of browsing and searching, but cannot find anything here on this forum
I am an experienced Photoshop user, but just found Gimp. So far, very good.

I work as a consultant Chemical Engineer, in an oil refinery.

I plan to bring converted DWGs - to PDFs - into Gimp, and then insert/modify with new valves, pumps, control valves, pressure controls, vessels, etc. That would be used as "marked-up" flow diagrams, P&IDs, for new designs or modifications.

Is there a selection of objects like this that can be opened directly into Gimp, without my needing to create each one? Yes, I realize there would be some advantages to a vector-based program versus a bit-mapped program, but I can modify and use existing drawings much easier in a bit-mapped program.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
