I exported an image from this site https://watabou.itch.io/medieval-fantasy-city-generator and am trying to make it really big, but can't figure out how. The tutorial vid I found uses an iOS or modified UI and I can't follow it. How do I resize this image, these paths, or whatever?

    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. GIMP isn't an SVG editor, by any stretch of the imagination. Use Inkscape instead. It's also free and Open Source

  1. Use Inkscape which is meant to edit SVG graphics

  2. With Gimp (if the SVG is only the beginning for a final raster image). Several solutions (they assume that you have ticked the "Import paths` option in the SVG open dialog):

    • If you do File>Open and select an SVG file, you can change the resolution, and this changes the size of the imported image. So you can scale up by just increasing the resolution.
    • Once the image is loaded, Image>Scale image with scale everything, including the imported paths.
    • You can also scale just one path, using the Scale tool in Tranform: path mode (third icon in the Transform: line in the Tool options).
  • I'll second the suggestion to use Inkscape for your edit requirements. If you discover that your image is not a true SVG, and is raster instead, you can use the Trace Bitmap feature of Inkscape to convert it for your purposes.
