Let me explore the topic a bit. The shape If we are attempting to do this with vector shapes, the shape itself must be right. It is easy to have deformed or disproportional shapes. One way to prepare them is duplicating the overall shape and using the contour lines thicker on the shape it will be the final border of the shadow. Now we have 2 shapes to ...

There is no good solution. I mean you can force a solutuon but it will never be a good solution since the standard does not give you any tools for this. The filters were supposed to be enough for you. You can only use things that whatever subset your SVG engine supports. Using a different application will not change this. Besides filters the only other ...

Illustrator's Blend defaults to Smooth Color even if the objects being blended can't use Smooth Color in an expected manner. There are some things the Smooth Color option doesn't see well, transparency can be one of them (since it's not actually color). Merely choose Object > Blend > Blend Options. Switch to Specified Steps and increase the number of ...

Because the colors you're blending are the same, using the Smooth Color option will produce only 1 step between the 2 objects. From Adobe Smooth Color Lets Illustrator auto-calculate the number of steps for the blends. If objects are filled or stroked with different colors, the steps are calculated to provide the optimum number of steps for a smooth color ...

I wouldn't even attempt to overlay two images with such disparate perspectives. I'd take the frame I liked the best [the top one obviously in this case for the sky] & just HDR it. This is Aurora HDR just at default settings. There are a million tweaks you could make to this, from hardly noticeable to "it hurts my eyes" - but we only have a tiny ...

Panoramas which are put together of discrete shots have often complex distortions generated by the panorama stitcher when it tried to crush the seams to fit. If the panoramas taken in day and evening do not have otherwise identical sets of shots except the light, the panoramas probably have totally different distortions - for ex. because the lens apertures ...

The problem here is that mask isn't very good. Even despite the fact automation makes mask creation easier than it has ever been, there are probably still some skills you will need to practice. In this particular example, I feel a mix of semi-automatic methods and some manual editing of the layer mask should get better results, although fully manual methods ...

I am not sure you are planning your print the right way. As I understand your project will be printing black and green on the cardboard: So you should separate your files, a plate for the black and a plate for the green. But if you want white over green, you need a white plate that will look simply the same as the black plate, using white opaque ink. There ...

You can use layer blending modes in Inkscape to overlay one colour over another. You may have to experiment with these to find the optimal blend mode. However, what you are suggesting is generally a bad idea if your intent is to create a working SVG for the web, or perhaps even if you are outputting as PDF. If you use multiple layers/blending modes (see *...

Object ▶ Blend ▶ Expand will turn all the intermediary blends into normal paths. From there, as @Vincent suggests, you can use the Pathfinder palette (Window ▶ Pathfinder) to Unite or Merge them as you might like.
