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.

Is it possible to save as jpeg files?
« on: October 10, 2010, 05:44:33 AM »
There are so many things that are possible to draw and do in inkscape but sometimes I would like to save as a jpeg. Is this possible? Please tell me how if it is. Thanks for all the help. Every one here is so helpful and much appreciated for all of us newbees.

You can export PNG files, which are a standard image files.  They are great for digi stamps since the backgrounds are transparent.  If you don't want a transparent background just put a white shape behind the image.

Select what you want to export, then use File/Export bitmap.  Choose a location if you want it different from where the svg is saved, and a file name.   You can also set the dpi or the pixel width.  HTH
