If Inkscape is a vector graphics editor, how come it can import/export raster images?
Most good graphics editors handle more than one format even though their native format may be different.
How can I make my Inkscape background white?
I am trying to export a project in Inkscape and it is exporting with no background, just floating text. Its all positioned correctly, but I want the background to be white. Don’t know what to do, help?
If saving as a Project, then it saves with all history for latter editing. If you didn’t add a white background in the image, it will not be saved with one. If you want a quick white background, save image as a *.jpg format.
Help with Inkscape/Mac/Automator, please?
Ok so I recently got interested in stop motion. I have a Mac, so I have iMovie, and I downloaded Inkscape (it’s like Paint but wayyy better)
Thing is, Inkscape doesn’t save any files my computer can recognize. Except for .pdf, but that saves as a whole 8 1/2 * 11 sheet, not the pixel size I want.
There’s a “Export to Bitmap” option, but it involves a few more keys than the Save-As. And since I’d just be making tiny changes to the file and then saving it as a new one, I don’t want to go through that every time.
I tried using Automator, but that can’t tell Inkscape to do anything? Not whatever I tried.
Inkscape is meant for the creation of vector based graphics, which is why it isn’t giving you raster based options like jpg, png, etc. Just use a different program.
While not as good as the downloadable programs, some good web-based online image editors are SumoPaint, Pheonix, Splashup and e Pixlr.
Converting documents to PDF with rasterized vector artwork.?
I have a problem converting images from vector artwork into PDF. I originally used Inkscape, but it can only export svg to png images, which are compressed. So, I now working with Adobe Illustrator, since it can export to many formats.
I have black and white schematics of stuff for my thesis. However, Illustrator cannot convert them to .tiff and other uncompressed formats, because I get errors like image being too large to be converted or not enough memory. So, I am back to making png.
I tried high resolution .png with little compression with Acrobat’s compression settings set to minimum when converting word documents into .pdf, but nothing has worked. I tried converting my png’s to tiff’s to preserve the image during the conversion.
What am I doing wrong?
Have you tried the save-as function of Illustrator. I get those errors occasionally as well. I have to either use the save as, or try the export function. It’s kind of something you have to play with to get it to work.
Have you tried rasterizing your image in Illustrator? It may work for saving it as a tiff.
