hi. I am quite new to inkscape so please bear with me....

i am trying to clip an object...
i have imported a photo and want to clip in a heart shape. i imported a heart. now when i clip the photo i can only see the heart but the outline of the original photo is the margin of the clipped image... (although it's white outline) how do i go about getting rid of that outline and only keeping the heart..? ;)

I can't tell from the screenshot if you are seeing just the "bounding-box" (the outline indicating an object is selected) of if there is something else you are seeing.

Please share the svg file.

close file and reopen to see if it is the selection box
