The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

ready to go ??
« on: August 26, 2010, 06:43:59 AM »
HI all,
another newbie with a cricut create, sure cuts a lot and a craft robo at the ready !
I've downloaded inkscape and am looking for the elusive starting point.
I would like to be able to import line drawings into inkscape and turn into cut files - maybe a simple flower to start. ?
I can manage welded words in scal but want to be able to add welded words / text to pictures to have cut as one project.
I would like to concentrate on the create as it is my newest toy .
Many thanks in anticipation
sharen

Hi Sharen, Welcome!
Heather M's website (with tutorials)  http://imagesbyheatherm.wordpress.com/

Carolyn has many wonderful video tutorials on her blog.  I don't remember if she covers tracing, but she has some great videos on many of the things that you can do in Ink.   http://www.cuttwopieces.com/

Welcome Sharen,

Heather's tutorials are always nice and easy to follow. I have not covered tracing as many talented people have posted instructions already.

Kay at cleversomeday has listed a lot of sites with Inkscape tracing tutorials and you may find some of them handy in the future as you are learning Inkscape. http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/images-to-svg/

Kay at cleversomeday has a really cool way of using the paint bucket for tracing

I like Heathers tracing tutorial she makes it easier to understand the threshold thing

thank you all, have made a start - have a picture of a cat, managed to get the trace bitmap, then got the boxes to appear - now it looks like kitty swallowed a firework - bits of cat all over the screen !! I shall give it another go I think.
Many thanks for the welcomes as well - very much appreciated as dont feel alone with this scary programme and cutter that is smarter than me !
cheer all
