In this screencast, I demonstrate a slotted corner scrapbooking effect. I also demonstrate a simple embossed text technique as well as a general image clipping technique. All this fun was done using Inkscape 0.45.

Many thanks for your effort and for sharing. I'm totally "green" to inkscape and found your tutorials to be very informative and encouraging in keeping at it.

I would be happy to see learn some more stuff if you care to keep them coming.


As a non-artist, I continue to be amazed at how you artistic folks can "see ahead" and plan your route to get there. For example, I would NEVER have thought to start with a rectangle shape to create the "slits" at the corners of the photo.

Also the video taught me a little about "Object to Path" and "Object to Pattern"...I've GOT to get used to those concepts. Thanks for a well done training video...KEEP IT UP!!

thanks! nice Video

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for rfquerin-heathenx
