Episode 001 – Test Screencast 1

by Richard Querin

RQ’s first screencast. This one’s got no voice, only music. But it’s pretty simple and shouldn’t require much explanation.

    Hi, do you know how to remove pics background or already built image/logos? image is in jpg format, but can’t be ungroup. Thank you for explaining it, heathenx.
    Anyway, your tutorial is the best for inkscape users.

  8. Richard Querin Says:

    VanBadal – A jpg (or png) is a bitmap file and cannot be ungrouped. Probably the best way to separate part of it from it’s background is to use something like The Gimp, Paintshop Pro or Photoshop.

    However, you can convert that bitmap into a vector image. The results of this really depend on the specific image you’re working with, how complex it is etc.. To do this in Inkscape you select the object and then use Path->Trace Bitmap…

    A good source of info on how to use this tool is: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Trace.html

    Good luck and thanks for watching, we’re glad you find our videos useful.
