Re: Need help with inkscape

I think it looks like you're on the right track, what you should try is, using the :tool_node: , you should make all the nodes "smooth" (upper left, hover over the icons of the tool, to get tool-help). Then, Strg+A to mark everything, and Strg+Shift+) to expand the blobs. Should look great.

Re: Development builds: Easy to install and sexy new features.

... addendum: If the Folder is in a path that has spaces in it, the icons are not found (most). German Windows has the Desktop under .../Dokumente und Einstellungen/... (F%&kup if there ever was one). So better not start it from the Desktop.

Re: Need help with inkscape

try again with :tool_pencil: Fill : Black, Stroke : None; After painting, press Strg (Ctrl) + L , A LOT (10-20x). Use the :tool_node: -> the nodes can be taken to where you need them, + there are handles that rule where the curve is going. Try a little. The jpg is not good for automatic tracing. But...

Re: Need help with inkscape

I guess you want this special paw-print rendered in the minimalistic style of the Jack Wolfskin logo? Don't go for :tool_ellipse: . This will look too standardized. Try this: :tool_pencil: draw around the print, and return to the square that marks the beginning of the Path, this will close it. Work ...

Re: snap to spirograph path?

Slightly Off-Topic: 1000 nodes seems to be the maximum the Spiro-Tool does, which elicits some rather strange behaviour: Some Spirograms are non-repetitive, or only start to repeat themselves after lots and lots of "turns". -> They always are created with 1000 nodes. If the Quality is set ...

Then select the circle, press Shift, select the spirogram, and Use Union (Or Difference).
