      I have used Gimp and it takes a bit to get used to. I have Inkscape loaded but have not used for portraits.

      There is a good tutorial using Gimp for portraits at Scrollsaw Village.

          While I have Gimp loaded, I don't really use it, I use Photoshop7, even thogh they work very much the same. As far as Inkscape, I use it to clean up my patterns and to finalize the size of them. So Gimp/Photoshop is my main work horse for making my patterns and Inkscape is my cleanup program.

            Just Wondering...

            Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

            With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

            I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

            Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

            I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

            If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
