Re: Corner to curve

I believe it´s possible with the node tool fir instance or filet&chamfer LPE (Live Path Effect) - but it´s a bit theoretical without any further information or a screenshot at least.

Re: Inkscape on macOS Catalina 10.15

I believe the 1.0alpha is already notarized - a procedure necessary due Apple´s new developer restrictions.
I´m not going "Catalina" so I can´t proof right now. You can get it from here: https://inkscape.org

Re: Bubble/Crystal Ball Effect from Image

May I ask why Inkscape - a vector editor and not GIMP as the equivalent to Photoshop?
Afaik there´s no kind of distortion/spherize filter in Inkscape available.

Re: tool/brush to reduce image daitails in b/w transitions

If you want a more smooth transition between black+white I first take the image to GIMP and have a good play with the threshold to adjust the amount of black versus white areas. Then apply a Gaussian blur filter, export to PNG and autotrace in Inkscape (GIMP can generate SVG from every selection BTW...

Re: Random Rotation using tweak tool without breaking it apart.

As seen in the video, this is meant to illustrate a bush as a top view. On the same layer, I have plenty of these bushes.

Is there a special reason to rotate the group via tweak tool instead of the transform-tool?

Maybe Cut Path is what you´re looking for; needs 2 path objects though.

Re: Inkscape blows up - obviously its me

The easiest way to handle this object seems to: 1. ungroup - you receive 5 separate objects 2. with the 5 selected go Path->Object to Path 3. with the node tool select every node for the sake of speed and go 4. Join selected Nodes 5. you can now use any color as a fill color via Fill and Stroke (shi...

Re: How to resize icons appropriately.

If your canvas is 64x64px go Export area->page and enter the new Image size Width/Height.
I´ve done thousands of icons this way 2 sizes each just by changing W+H. As we need tiff files and 72dpi resolution for implementation I batch processed the PNGs with GIMP.

Re: Nodes will not "snap" together

Aside from the fact you´re not showing your snapping options in your screenshot - the sheer amount of nodes for a simple curve makes me nervous; where you put in 20 points just 3 are needed to build a curve. Try to click&drag with the pen tool next time. ;)

Re: Consistent resolution across image

My best guess and the easiest way is to take it e.g. into GIMP and go Image->Scale image and take the same px width alike the other images. In Inkscape I find it a bit harder to do. There´s -> Extension->Raster->Resample where go can tell which px size the image should have. But it stays 1:1 on the ...

Hi.
Your file already contains lots of rasterised images like "Homecoming", "Henry´s Walks", and the frame and all grouped inside groups inside groups inside groups inside groups etc.
Try to ungroup everything then try again:
