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.

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. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Learnt something new!
« on: August 16, 2011, 01:39:59 PM »
Hi everyone

I watched a tutorial on Youtube the other day by Little Web Hut on how to change a picture in Inkscape.  Well, I've given it a try & I'm really pleased with the outcome.  Can't cut it out but, hey ho, not to worry.  It's so amazing what you can do with this software and I know I haven't even scratched the surface yet!!

Anyway, hope you like the end product.  By the way, it's a photo I took a couple of years back when I was staying in Salisbury, UK for a weekend.... it's a lovely place to go!

Debbie    :)

Wow, looks great. Did you use a mask?
Little Web Hut have some great tutorials and I have learnt a lot from them since you mentioned the site.

Thanks, Carolyn.  No, I didn't use a mask but the clip/set.  Basically you take your main photo, duplicate it, change it in the effects, I used the pencil.  Then you draw a circle/oval/square etc over the part you want to be in colour and use the clip.  It's a little bit more involved than this but, at least you get the idea.  

I think it looks great although, to be honest, I wish the pencil background was a little darker.  I might have to have a play with that and see if I can anything about it!
