Meet the GIMP #41: Is it a Hammer?
This week I am too lazy to make a show. So I have outsourced the work to heathenx from the famous Inkscape Screencast. Even more exploiting him, I asked for a vector based SVG version of the “Meet the GIMP!” logo. I made the original logo with GIMP, thinking it was the right tool. I found out, that I had used a screwdriver to hit a nail. In this case Inkscape is the tool of choice.
The image on top of this post is a composite (made with GIMP) out of 5 different exports from heathenx’s file. 1500, 300, 150, 49 and 15 pixel in diameter. Each one is perfectly rendered - nothing that I could do with scaling and sharpening in GIMP. The small one here was done with GIMP, he has a lot less detail.
After heathenx’s tutorial I can’t resist and try to explain the difference between raster and vector images.
