I've downloaded Inkscape in order to try to fix this fairly simple problem.
I have a .svg file that is too big for the intended purpose. I've already taken the steps I could in order to reduce it in size, but still need to cut another 30% off it. What I intend to do, is simplify the image.
This is a part of the vector file:
From what I can tell, it consists of 3 objects. (The white, light blue and blue parts). I want to reduce the detail, and just have the entire object be white, as a single object. I've selected the 3 objects and combined them.
The result is the 3 objects are now glued together, but I can see it still consists of the same number of vectors, defeating the purpose of trying to reduce the file size.
Is there anyway, I can get the program to merge the objects together in such a way, that it becomes a new simpler object, consisting of fewer vectors?
If not, what would be the best way to approach this problem?
