Working on a new poster with @inkscape and #gimp.

You can create nice #art effects by

1. creating vector forms in #inkscape
2. export them to raster graphics
3. edit them with gimp, i.e. with #gmic filter "Finger Paint" and "Ink Wash"
4. re-import them to inkscape
5. optional: vectorise the images

In the example, the background (door) is an ink-washed raster graphic, the text ("…RHÖ…") is vecorised finger paint :)

Inkscape dot *org* is our domain. Not dot live or anything else. Thanks @gbryant ❤️ for sharing this example of a potentially malicious email.

⚠️REMINDER: Only download Inkscape from trusted sources and be cautious about emails with links, even if they claim to be from the project. If there's any doubt go to the source. The latest, validated release will always be available for free on our website.

Boosts appreciated.

Si vous voulez en savoir plus sur les logiciels #Inkscape, #Gimp, #Scribus et #Blender, si vous cherchez des formations sur le sujet et, si vous vous demandez comment on peut devenir développeur en ayant fait une maîtrise d'Arts plastiques, je suggère la lecture de cette très intéressante interview de Cédric Gémy sur #linuxfr.

Bonne lecture.

In Inkscape, you can easily create an array of objects applying complex iterative transforms.
The function is accessed via Edit > Clones > Create Tiled Clones.

You need to select a source object first. If it's a group you can later edit the source group contents and all created clones will update automatically.

It's one of these awesome functions that's hard to discover.

And the tool also has the other Boolean operations as modes, see example.

Now we want to know:

In what order should operations happen for substracting.

🅰️: z-order (stacking order)

🅱️: selection order (the order in which objects were selected)

Well, after a few days of using #inkscape I decided to write a #blog about my history with the software.

tl;dr: why didn't I try it sooner?
