The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Video - Clip Set
« on: August 18, 2010, 08:59:27 PM »
In the first video I show how you can use clipping to remove a white background from jpeg images. Very useful if you want to add a different colour background to your project. I also show a few other uses for clipping, such as turning a photo into a word image. Like the rest of my videos it is only a basic outline of the steps and the idea is for you to experiment and see what you can create. Examples similar to those shown on the video are under the second You Tube link.

The next video uses different steps to remove the white background. The second way involves a few more steps but does have advantages. It can be used to make background papers for your projects.
Error in the video. I missed this one as I tried to make it so many times. I don't do print and cut that way as the white background does not matter for printing. I do use it if the image has a patterned background and I only want to use part of the image and I manually trace.  I will probably remake the video next week.
After making this video I realised after the print and cut file is created, tiled clones may be a quicker way to create background papers. Anyway, it shows another way some projects can be done and hopefully somebody can find an inventive use for the technique.

How much fun was that?  Nice job and another great idea.  I've never used clip so off to try it.

Thanks,

This is something I use quite a lot but it is so good to have a video of the process, especially for members who are new to Inkscape.  I wish it had been around when I was learning Inkscape  :lol: .

My BRAIN is swelling but I got it.  I had to watch the second video about 6 times but I think I've got it.

Created this for pattern paper.  Starting a folder for pattern templates that I will share when I'm more confident.

In the meantime here's what I accomplished this morning.  I had to change some of the steps to accomodate the fact that I was using text not image but I'm happy.

Carolyn you are amazing!!!  Thanks so much for pushing me to try new things.

Hi Susan

I think I had the same swell head when I first learnt how to do the interpolate steps to design my Nestie files, and that was purely from watching Carolyns great vids......Can't wait to see more of your pattern templates...Well Done....

Okay, had to play with clip...here it is...sending bookmarks to family! The biggest problem when it comes to printing is that I need to lighten my pics for printing, they look fine on the computer but too dark when I print but this was fun!

Laura, it is beautiful. You did yourself and Carolyn proud with this great gift.  Oh to be so talented and creative.

I'd be really tempted to put a bunch of them on an 8 x 10 page and send them over to the local print center (like Walgreens) and have a sheet or two printed to cut up.

MDH does some wonderful photo's and we print them in 13x19".  The combination of printer/software/paper is so confusing.  If I print his image on my Cannon/APSE/Kodak paper I get a totally different color than he gets using the same printer but with iPhoto on Office Max glossy paper.

I have found that using Office Max matte photo paper works nicely for my cards, better than cardstock for an image with all these beautiful colors.  I buy the large size paper pack and cut them down to fit the project.  I do have to put the pieces back in the folder so I don't mix them up with regular thin card stock.

Thanks, Susan! This was a fun project...I've used a glossy coated card stock on our laser printer and it does pretty good, I've used it for postcards but I may look at some matte photo paper for some new prints I'm working on.
