Re: Cutter Nightmares

if you have a known image that is bad and its one or two colors-

enlarge the image 3xs its size 10x10 change to 30x30 you will loose no detail if you enlarge it first

export as a png

bring it back into inscape

revector it

resize it

and if you still have problems it is not the file

Re: Vectorizing Colors/Shades

just thinking - no that isnt true all the way - if you do a shade from yellow to green there is no lines so there is no nodes -

Re: Inkscape .eps file to be used in Roland Versaworks print/cut

i dont get it - no i dont use Versaworks but the line color has to be called CutContour not black yellow and so on.

so if you make an eps file in AI or CORAL you have to rename the color also? i havent ever heard of that before.
