I'm using Inkscape.

How would I do image fading, say about 5 steps equally spaced, so that they eventually blend into the background.

enter image description here

So I want to go black to red (the second black figure to the upper right would not end up black, this is just a diagram).

Basically I'm trying to do something the same as this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQfJMQyc4Fg but with images not letters.

The images are already paths.

1 Answer 1

  1. Change the fill of one shape to red, the other black.

  2. Make sure you send the red shape to the bottom of the stack - you can use End or Object > Lower to bottom

  3. Select both shapes

  4. Do Extensions > Generate from Path > Interpolate - see settings below. Engage the preview, and click Apply when you are happy with the result
