I've got a bit behind this month, so two issues of Full Circle Magazine have come out since my last post:

Full Circle Magazine #115, with part 55 of my series. Lighting filters - the Specular and Diffuse Lighting primitives.

Full Circle Magazine #116, with part 56 of my series. The last filter primitive: Component Transfer (only available in the UI for Inkscape 0.91 or later).

Nice!

Does it mean the next part will be about some more complex examples?

I'm afraid not. My filter skills are nowhere near good enough to produce complex examples other than by semi-random experimentation. The next part will be the last one on filters, filling in a couple of gaps in the coverage so far, before I move onto the next topic.

I see.

On the component transfer primitive it maybe worth mentioning that in 0.91 there was a bug on the transparent parts being transparent black (?) and that the component transfer can bring to unexpected results. Example case -add some blurring to the object, and after component transfer the alpha values to a higher slope.
(This had messed up some of my filters thumbnail at openclipart.)

Also that the component transfer itself is rendered rather inaccurately with current cairo.

Jonathan Hoskin has kindly taken it upon himself to extend the number of "Inkscape Special Editions" - so now you can read all the articles up to part 42 in 6 handy compilations, rather than having to download each magazine separately.

You can get all of them from here: http://fullcirclemagazine.org/inkscape- ... -editions/

Hey, cool :) I think we must add those to the Inkscape website :) How large are the files?

The first two are fairly large - 8MB and 5MB. The remaining four were produced by someone else who has a different workflow, as the largest is 2MB (but the images are lower resolution).

I'm more than happy for them to be put on the website. There's no explicit license info in the last four, but I think it's safe to assume the same license as the first couple of parts: CC-BY-SA. Specifically, part 1 contains this paragraph:

The articles contained in this magazine are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0
Unported license. This means you can adapt, copy, distribute and transmit the articles but only under the following conditions: You
must attribute the work to the original author in some way (at least a name, email or URL) and to this magazine by name ('full circle magazine') and the URL http://www.fullcirclemagazine.org (but not attribute the article(s) in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work). If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you must distribute the resulting work under the same, similar or a compatible license.


So as far as I'm concerned you're welcome to put them on the site, but should probably at least include a mention of Full Circle Magazine, and a link to the original download site somewhere on the page.

Xav, I rather thought of upping your quota and asking you to upload them yourself, in the tutorials section :) (but for the quota, I needed a number)

You'd need to mention the licence version, though, in the description, as due to a bug, I can't currently add the newer 3.0 version of the licence to the website.

Would that be okay for you, too?

I've got a bit behind again, so two issues of Full Circle Magazine have come out since my last post:

Full Circle Magazine #117: Part 57 - Filters: Using "Background Image/Alpha" and chaining filters.
Full Circle Magazine #118: Part 58 - Some SVG and web politics, installing 0.92, and the "paint-order" feature from SVG 2.


Moini, I've noted your suggestion and added it to my ever-growing todo list, but I'm not sure when I'll get round to making any progress on it.

@Xav: do you have an account at inkscape.org? I could do it for you, but I'd like to see the tutorial linked to your account.

No, it doesn't look like I have. I do have one for wiki.inkscape.org, but that's not the same as a login for the main site.

(asking the obvious now, I apologize if this is impolite: Would you create an account? Or maybe you wouldn't like to?)

I just tried to access issue #118 and got this message:

The website isn't anything to do with me, but I have sent a note to the editor of the magazine, just in case he's not already aware of the issue.

Full Circle Magazine #119 is out, with part 59 of my series, covering Mesh Gradients. Given that I started with a "prequel" piece, this is actually my 60th article: I've been writing this column for 5 years now!
