Episode 062 – Raster Image Perspective Effect

by heathenx

In this episode I will demonstrate how to manipulate a raster image by applying a perspective effect with the help of Imagemagick and then using that in my vector project. I will be using Inkscape v0.46.

You will need to download and install Imagemagick for your operating system, if you don’t already have it, in order to use the terminal command that I demonstrate in the tutorial. If you are using a Debian based distro, such as, Ubuntu then it’s as simple as a “sudo apt-get install imagemagick” in a terminal. Binaries are also available for Windows and Mac users.

You may visit for a closer look at this small but powerful package. For specific information regarding the the perspective distort then cruise over to this link.

Episode 015 – Perspective

by Richard Querin

A screencast demonstrating how to use the perspective effect in Inkscape.

[UPDATE: Kudos to Don Waters for pointing out the fact that in Inkscape 0.46, you have to choose the shape to be transformed first and then the perspective path shape – the opposite of 0.45 it seems.]
