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.

The Morgue File is a photography site with copyright free images. http://www.morguefile.com/  I have changed many of these images into cutting files. If you are new to tracing photo images, silhouette photos are pretty easy to convert.

Blue Vertigo is a great and lists many free sites for images, vector designs, fonts and many other topics. Scroll across the page to see all the listed categories and be prepared to lose many hours visiting the long list of sites.  http://www.bluevertigo.com.ar/

The following site has wonderful, free clipart:  "www.openclipart.org"  There are some really great SVGs there and they are all free.  Also, you can add to the site with your own vector drawings.  I have started a small collection there that you can take a look at.  Just type "laurianne" into the search box.

I know this is an old topic, but once I saw it I had to add my little bit to.

Yes, Morguefile is great.
OCL the open clipart Library is to, and the quality of the clips there just keeps getting better.
Plus you can find a few good filters that don't come standard with Inkscape just yet.

Another good site for reference images you can use for making just about anything you like is http://www.stockvault.net/
I expect most of the forum users know about it already, but new members might not.
