Image Quaility: Inkscape to Gimp

Postby VectorNoob » Fri Mar 15, 2013 7:04 am

Hi All,

I'm a web designer starting out. I have been using gimp on and off for a while now and I'm fairly familiar with the program. Making websites to the caliber I want requires vector work and I wanted to be able to create and modify these elements myself. And here I am. I have ran through all the basic tutorials and some others I have found, so I'm well off at this point.

I have made some clip art, ribbons and such, that I am trying to import to gimp and I'm losing image quality. I have tried to change the dpi on export which increases size and on the import to gimp, which still renders blurry. I have tried both .png and .svg which produces the same results. Is there something I'm missing? This issue severely reduces the quality of my work.

There's a lot of info on this forum about this very issue, so a search might turn up all you need to know. Here's a start.

BTW GIMP will open SVG. Have you tried that?
Your mind is what you think it is.

Actually, I cranked up the volume on the DPI to over a few thousand and it worked out.

Is there a DPI preference for any of you?
