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.

Accordian fold - photo project.
« on: January 24, 2011, 05:19:28 PM »
My examples are a poor quality. They were a quick test in draft format on standard printer paper to check the tutorial steps worked. Typical, I ran out of ink before I could print them on firmer photo paper. I did not use my cutter and cut the final image on a guillotine.

I replaced the ink and decided to print the same images on photo paper and this is the result. I also change the line spacing to 1 inch.

A few important notes before you decide to try this project.
- ensure you have paper large enough to print the project. As two photo's are combined it doubles the overall width. If you use two 4x6 inch photo's it will not print on A4 photo paper.
- You may want to add fold lines if your images are similar in colour as it will be harder to see where the fold lines should go after printing.

The images used in my example are chosen for the high contrast in colour to ensure it is easier to see the steps in the tutorial.
Here is a pictorial of the steps I used.

In the following tutorial I use a 1 inch grid line. Use the setting you want to suit your project.
My photo of the finished project was created with 1/2 inch grid spacing.
I left the grid lines visible and 'snap to grid' turned on while I created my project.

If you prefer to print your project in another program or share it with someone who does not have Inkscape, just make a bitmap copy.
If anyone tries this project I would love to see photo's of the finished item.

Read the tutorial, and realized the project I worked on last night could've used the snap-grid option....when making the lines in a note card...

i.e.:
