    New Graphic Tool...


    Up till now I've been using Paint.net/Gimp 2.8 and they're both great tools. But yesterday I was looking for a possible option that I could try out. There's Photoshop but that's a bit intimidating to me so I did a bunch of Google searches and I found this: Home | Inkscape

    It's a free tool that seems to be very powerful and fun to use. I'm leaning how to use it and I thought I would just share my find,..

    I like the look of those color choices on the bottom in Gray Scale, which shows how a color looks in different light conditions. Such as your car in midday sun as opposed to sitting in the shade, as opposed to how the color looks in the evening at dusk.

    That is a nice feature.. and when you insert an image you can scale it at the same time. I found that to be a great feature. What I want to learn is how to do the text and start a new image today,

    It'll work better if your monitor is calibrated. Of course using a calibration tool(such as Spyder) and software is better, but you can also do it with your eyes to a small extent(better than not doing it), and your eyes get used to it quick enough. In the beginning the colors will look washed out until you brain has adjusted to seeing REAL color gamut and Gray Scale.
    I recommend downloading and burning to disk HDTY Calibration Dick AVCHD from AVS Forums: AVS HD 709 - Blu-ray & MP4 Calibration - AVS Forum | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews

    You cannot compare Gimp/ Paint to Inkscape. While Gimp/ Paint work with pixel based graphics Inkscape works with vector graphics. Advantage of vector graphics: Everything in vector graphics is based on math so the graphics are scalable indefinitely without any pixelation, it's the ideal tool to create logos for example. But on the other hand Inkscape is hardly useful at all if you want to edit pixel based images like photos. So like always in order to accomplish what you are trying to do you have to choose the right tool.
