  • Inkscape info?

    I am looking for a tutorial or someone to point me in the right direction with inkscape. I have tried Gimp but can't get it to do what I want which was to kern the letters. Now I have loaded Inkscape and have gotten it to do some of the things I want but can't figure out the adding graphics to words.

    I want to do some of my own wordart and most of all I need to add graphics to letters for my grandkids names. I can get the letters and lines to connect for wordart but cannot figure out how to get the graphics in the right places.

    Jim_Mex wrote a tutorial on Inkscape which is posted in the "Stickies" section of the Intarsia section of this forum. I found it to be very helpful and easy to follow.

          I have watched all the videos above and they are all great.

          I would start with the one mentioned by Don R first. Do the homework too as it really makes you learn a lot.

          Then watch the others. The ones by Jim mex cover a lot too.

            Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

            I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there.

            Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
