Having problems exporting svg to eps Adobe compat.

Hi guys, I have tried to export my svg to eps but I am having problems. I would like to upload some images to stock site, however the stock site requires the images in an EPS format which is also Adobe 8 compatible. I have exported my graphic to an EPS and then tried re-opening it in Gimp, however i...

Re: Ladybugs

I like your ladybug but I think you can make a few tweaks to make it look stronger. If you smooth out the top wing where it joins with the head. Give it the same round curve as your other wing so they meet at a final point. The red body could be brighter and have more depth to it. Maybe getting rid ...

Re: Copy / Paste in X11 on OS X

Hi guys,

I am having the same problem trying to copy and paste between two Inkscape windows. I have opened up a new instance and it still doesn't make a difference.

I am also a Mac user and I was wondering when someone is going to compile an update as the last update was back in September 2008 ;)

Re: How can I prevent banding in my png?

@microugly I followed your 1.5 conversion rate, exported the image as a png then resized it in Gimp. The resize reduced some of the banding issues, however I applied a blurred outline to smooth it out further. Unfortunately during this process the image has lost the crisp outline. I hope with furthe...

Re: How can I prevent banding in my png?

microugly thank you for taking the time to provide the screen shots so I could see the comparison. I will try exporting the file at 1.5 times and resize the png in Gimp.

Cheers I will let you know how I go. :)

Re: How can I prevent banding in my png?

Thanxs microugly for the info about the Batik rasterizer. I had another look in my .svg file and what I thought was banding was actually jagged pixelation. It's occurs when the edge of a light colour meets a dark colour. I have tried adjusting the colours, changing the thickness of lines but the pix...

I guess it's not a bad thing, especially for the Inkscape project. :) I had another look at my image because you guys were talking about gradient banding, the green circle with the stroke is gradient free.

Re: A bag of candy

Like your bag of candy. I agree with Pipo if the text flowed with the creases of the bag it would look more realistic.
Would like to see a revised version.

Re: possibility to create a whole linked SVG-website

Wow what a fantastic idea! Guys that is really cool to think that an .svg image file can be used to create a webpage without knowing any html. Considering how messy html standards are, to be able to use an Inkscape .svg file might be a lot easier for people who are naturally artistic. When you think...

Nice effects on the shell. Yeah arms and legs can be a real challenge, but sometimes sleeping on it pays off.

I have a few .ai files that I need to convert to a .svg format but I am not familiar with using a commandline.
