Anyone here use the program "Inkscape"

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to convert files into SVG files and it seems that "Inkscape" is a program that does that, plus lots of other things.😃 I'm just wondering does anyone here use Inkscape?

Oh, dear - I’ve never heard of Inkscape or know what SVG files are so I’m interested to read any answers to your question.

Ngaire, I think I once had Inkscape on my computer but not now.

I use Pixillion for converting files and I just checked and you can convert PNG or JPEG to SVG with it.

I will share a link https://pixillion-free-image-converter.en.softonic.com/

I mostly use it for converting Kit previews JPEGs to ICO ( icons for folders so I can see what is in my kit folders).  It is a free download but then I think you are asked to give a donation and I think I gave $5 and it is still working okay so that must have been enough payment.

Oh thanks for that Anne Marie!😃 But I have already downloaded Inkscape and are pretty fascinated with what it can do. Have been hunting down lots of tutorials and it seems a pretty cool piece of software. I have been wondering about learning Illustrator but the cost has put me off. Inkscape seems to do what I would like it to do and more and is a free download😊 I went and looked at the pixillion and aren't too sure that it is ok with my mac. Seemed to be good for windows though.

I bought Illustrator years ago and still have not learnt how to use it.... very complicated to learn.

I forgot yours is not a Windows computer.

I have it, but haven't used it for a long time.  I finally made myself sit down and learn a bit more about Illustrator.

I use Illustrator for SVG - and sure-cuts-a-lot to cut said SVG's on my Cricut. But never used SVG files for anything else.

Thanks ladies for your replies. I guess I will just have to do what you have done Angie, and just sit down and work with it. But I will go with "Inkscape" instead of Illustrator😊
Andrea its also for my cricut😃 I have this wonderful machine and now I really need to use it, but living in NZ there isn't a lot of support for cricut. I cant use the "access" they talk about because its only for the USA, Canada and the UK. So I have to do lots of googling which can be wonderful but sometimes lots of looking and digging needs to be done before I can find too many wonderfuls😊 Do you use your cricut much? If so what do you use it for?
