The problem is one of the tools (probably LO Draw) isn't setting the X,Y on the <svg:text> elements properly. If you open the SVG in Inkscape and look at the XML source, the <svg:text> elements don't have x and y attributes set. Within them, however <tspan> has an X and Y set (if I understand right, these offset the position from the ...

I don't know much about Gimp but maybe you can use my Photoshop example and find a way in Gimp to achieve this. In Photoshop, I would make an action that does something like this and then do a batch processing: 1) put the image to grayscale, 2) change the image mode to duotone mode using your new color + a gray 3) convert back to RGB mode 4) save. ...

Use a graphic program's vector tracing algorithm (this generally requires lots of clean-up afterwards), hand trace/recreate it yourself with vector graphic program of choice (takes time but generally provides the best results), or use a service like http://vectormagic.com/home

Set "Relative to" to "Last selected" in the "Align and Distribute…" tab. Finally, click on ("align bottom edge of objects to the top of the anchor").

In inkscape 0.91 the effect for the "triangle in" shape is obtained with the "power stroke". Select draw freehand (F6), select "triangle in" shape and draw a line (set the smoothing to 40 or more for best result); to change the width of the shape: press F2 (edit path), you'll see a small pink square (is the control for the "Power stroke"): drag this square ...

I couldn't see the attached example but a little image-Googling made me guess it's the 2013 Denver County Fair poster. If it is, that effect can be done in Inkscape. Here's one way to do it: Make 2 different gradient filled "rays" per sunburst. The angle of the pennant shapes depends on how many rays of each you want in a sunburst (9 degrees in this case, ...

With Inkscape we can not trace object effects such as glow, drop shadow, stroke properties, gradients, or similar. If we trace an image with any such effects a fake gradient or glow is simulated on tracing by adding a plethora of objects for each color gradient. This will dramatically increase your SVG's file size, and it will not be rendered with smooth ...

One way to do that is to: Cut away portions of the map with a top shape using 'difference' (Ctrl+-). The resulting map should look like the one masked but is already sliced into sections. Break the map apart (Shift+Ctrl+K) and group it to keep the parts together; then Right click map group, enter group, select and color the sections as desired.

Try the bucket fill tool. Set the threshold level to something high, say 10 or above to smoothen the trace.
