The solution is to use gradients. By placing two gradient stops at the same location, you achieve the sharp switch: This is the result: Nest step is to turn the gradient ton 45°. I simply zoom in to put the gradient begin and and as close to the corner as possible: And here's the result, nice simple inset border:

1) Bitmap copy workaround: Select the bitmap image with the clipping mask and press ALT + B (create a bitmap copy). Delete the original image. The resolution of the bitmap copy can be set in the Edit > Preferences > Bitmaps menu. 2) Filter workaround: Apply dummy filters to the clipped bitmap images (e.g. Filters > Fill and Transparency > Blend with ...

Do you really need a PDF? The typical way to combine a set of SVG files into one manageable, readable document is to create an HTML document. Strictly speaking, an SVG file is just a component of an HTML document. You can choose to make one page that has the SVG’s placed consecutively so you can view them by scrolling, or you can choose to create multiple ...

Just keep in mind that a pdf is a totally diferent file format and you will loose the editing capabilities you have in inkscape. A pdf is an output format that has many flavors. Compressed, realy compressed, not compressed at all, rgb, spot, cmyk. Saying that, you can send them to a virtual printer like pdf creator http://www.pdfforge.org/ And you have a ...

I am using Inkscape and routinely store SVGs into PDF. Stay away from filters, and opaque settings as PDFs (or should I say InkScapes export to PDF) does not handle this feature very well. I instead use color scales instead of opaque levels to soften colors directly on the palette and avoid the filters altogether. I know this is cumbersome and limits your ...

Basing on your example, this seems more a vector tool work. If the original source is a vector, you can edit this with Inkscape. If the image is a bitmap, you can import and trace it (as in this example). Now, you can edit the path, it's composed by nodes: Select all the nodes and simplify the path by hitting Ctrl+L With the node selected, convert ...

In XML code there is a translation command that moves the cube. You have to remove it. You can also remove it selecting the cube's and setting its coordinates to x=0 and y=0

As CAI said you can use different brushes for the line style to give a more hand-drawn effect which works well but that is only half the solution. To fully complete the look use the warp tool (shift+R) or one of the warp or distort effects or possibly a combination of the above. This will give the imperfects needed for a more authentic hand-drawn look.

Removing the extra \includegraphics is not enough since the pdf pages contain part of my drawings. I found a solution (proposed by Biber on launchpad.net): %######## Put all this code before the '\begin{document}' statement. ########### %Tell LaTeX where to look for graphics (the './.tmp /' folder will be used by the '\includesvg' command for the inkscape ...

You can trace the image in a vector drawing tool such as Inkscape. Tracing turns the elements of the design into vector objects. Once the elements of the design are vector objects you can improve the quality of the image in a couple of ways: if it is the quality of the design you are concerned with, you can modify the design in many ways, for example, ...

create your shape give it a stroke select PATH >> STROKE TO PATH You now have a new shape that has the form of your path to which you can apply a stroke and fill to.

If you double click (or hit Ctrl+Enter) on a group, you perform the Enter Group command, which turns the group into a temporary layer (you know that you are entered into the group because in the layer drop down menu now appears the group name). In this mode, the Select All command act only on the objects of the group (and this should answer to your ...

Aradnix makes a point that really resonates with my experience. I started off in the Computer Graphics Design world in 1987 while attending The Univ. of Tennessee. The first CG program I used was AutoCad (I think ver. 2.0). At the time there really wasn't any useful raster graphics program available, nor any need for one. By 1989 Win 3.0 showed up and ...

Inkscape is one of free powerful grahic editors out there is good for vector graphics that can be exported as bitmaps (raster) and used as sprites if you want.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. My bezier tool was set to spiro when I drew the heart. Is that affecting it? That’s extremely likely. I would suspect that difference was not programmed to take spiros into account and treated your path like a regular Bézier curve (though it wasn’t). Just selecet your heart and apply object to path before applying ...

See Paolo Gibellinis comment - the links he provided are really helpful for noobs like myself! For completeness: If you want to draw the dashed line, you could simply draw two rectangles with round corners, make them overlap, use Ctrl and + to create an union of the paths, change the border stroke and remove the fill. To align the boxes you can use snapping ...

Hope this will help - Create your layers, then select the object you want to move to another layer and shift+PageUp (to move 1 layer up) or shift+PageDown (to move 1 layer down)

There are two easy ways: Drag a selection rectangle over the position. Make use of the fact that Inkscape preserves selection when you undo or redo actions: Move one node away, select both nodes and then undo. For some reason, if you select two nodes at the same position, they are not rendered anymore. Nonetheless, if you hit join selected nodes, you get ...

The following may help you: Snapping. This probably solves most of your problems. Using the align and distribute tab. Creating new objects from duplicating existing ones. Create only one half; then mirror (use clones to preview results).

There is indeed "Filter > Color > Color Shift", but I think in your case, you should have an object, used as a base color, then some semi-transparent shades of gray above it. So you'd only have to change the base object's color.

Make sure that all of the objects in your image are paths (and not circles, rectangles or similar). Selecting everything and path → object to path should do the job. Duplicate (Ctrl + D) the framing rectangle. Group (Ctrl + G) everything but one of the duplicate rectangles. Make a trapezium of the ungrouped rectangle. Select the group and then the ...

Within inkscape, the most likely process would be: draw object clone/duplicate/cut-and-paste/arrange into whatever patter you want group them all (or union) use the envelope distort feature to accomplish the 'field' effect. Here's a video that explains that particular feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3BHcregNUs
