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.

Tiled clone background ideas and settings
« on: July 13, 2011, 07:09:05 AM »
I have added this topic thanks to Susan getting a few of us hooked on pattern fills using tiled clones.
Susan has a blog post and video showing the steps http://papasuecreative.blogspot.com/201 ... color.html
As there are so many possibilities I thought it would be good if members added any good combination they discover while designing.
All you have to do is take a screenshot of any settings used so we can use the same settings with our own images.

The following patterns are not very exciting but I have added them to show how different a pattern can look by changing setting in Shift.
Symmetry for all of the following was set at P1 Simple Translation.
The only tab where setting were changed was Shift.

Screenshots of the settings I used to get alternating opposite colours.
I show two examples so you can see the effect, to me it looks like you get colours on the opposite side of the colour wheel.
- Before I created the tiled clones I unset the fill colour.
- I used P1 Simple Translation.
- Settings were only changed in the Color tab.
- I used the same setting in Color for Hue, Saturation and Lightness.
- The only change between the two screenshots is the initial colour selected.
You may notice I have the settings at S (Saturation) at 2% this is not essential. It is the 50/50 setting at H (Hue) that gives this result.

The next three examples only have changes made at Alternate in the Color tab.
- Before I created the tiled clones I unset the fill colour.
- I used P1 Simple Translation.
- Settings were only changed in the Color tab.
- I used the same setting in Color for Hue, Saturation and Lightness.
- I changed which boxes where ticked in Alternate, see screenshots for the result.

Last example from me tonight.
The following two screenshots are to show the difference when L (Lightness) settings are changed.
Once again I unset the fill colour before creating the tiled clones
I set selected the colour at initial color in the Color tab.
The screenshots clearly show the difference in the lightness as some of the colours are too light to see clearly in the second screenshot.

There are many ways you can take a screenshot and we all have our preferred method. I have Windows 7 and use the Snipping Tool. If you have Windows 7 or Vista Premium / Business the Snipping Tool can be found in accessories.

There are free programs to download that take snapshots of screen images and hopefully someone can recommend a program for you if you don't have the snipping tool in your version of Windows.

It is also possible to print the screen using the keyboard. Some computers you can just press the key PRT SC or like my laptop I press the FN (Function) key and the PRT SC key to capture the entire screen. However, the captured image needs to be pasted into a program such as Irfanview.

If you have a Mac computer, PapaSue should be able to help.

I figured it out, or at least I got closer to getting the spacing I wanted.

Two objects, union together
duplicated and aligned, I used 5 for my paper.  

Then Tiled clones with these settings.  You see that I used size to be 10x10, well I didn't get exactly 10x10 but close.  I use "inches" so maybe mm would be better, don't know about that.

Hi all
was wandering around the forum and came across this thread from a while back

Susan - I tried the link to your blog but I think you may have moved or deleted it - do you by chance still have your original lesson

I can created tiled clones but the whole spacing and changing colour fascinates me

Thanks

Pandora, this was one of the last videos I did before my brain stopped talking to my hands and mouth and I took down the original blog.  The video is still on You tube at and along with the post I did above with another design it should get you by.

Let us know how you do and what you create!  So nice to have activity on this forum!

So not really what I set out to create but playing around I came up with this and use it as a stencil

Being a gadget freak I discovered that there is an attachment which allows you to airbrush using your copics - one slighty mad bid on ebay and now I have a compressor the adaptor for my copics -  now everything I make ends up being a stencil to play with !

Pandora, I can use the bubble file…tks.  I was at the craft store yesterday and saw your new gadget and I'm waiting, waiting, waiting to see what you do with it….looks like it could be really fun.

Hi Susan
Answer is I spent a great deal of time playing and not really achieved too much as yet - just started a new contract today - left home at 5.30am and got back thanks to the very miserable rain and a lot of accidents on the motorways at 7.56 - sometimes I hate digital clocks !   it is always so exact - anyhow cooked dinner - had a glass of wine and the world feels better.  Will try and get around to taking some pictures - it is quite interesting there are quite a few videos of how to use the new copic system and not too many showing results - part of the problem is that it is far less exact than air brushing with a normal airbrush - still I have experimented and will continue once I get to the weekend again - hopefully
