Very cool. I'd really be interested in knowing how you made those cracks.

It is a texture photo i downloaded from a free texture source, i did the paint job though! ;)
(masking in Inkscape). Thats a great idea to use it as a spash screen, ill do it!

Image
Id be willing to bet i could recreate the cracks in the texture though...ill give it a try after my guitar project.
I am working on a guitar in InkScape right now, when its done ill upload it for you all to see.
here is a preview of the work in progress...

Image

decided to add some raindrops to my sig =)
sort of thinking its dreary until 2.8 comes out.

here is a link to the tutorial for the rain..
http://www.tutorialized.com/view/tutori ... face/27290
the guitar is vector, and i had to use a jpg image of an actual guitar photo, then cut out each shape and then created the gradients for each shape...tedious but fun, very fun.i love working in InkScape almost as much as GIMP. =)
after the guitar im gonna try a motorcycle (Harley Davidson probably)

Sorry if i confused you....
Vector images are scalable to any resolution and still look very sharp.Even if you scale them up in size.
SVG (scalable vector image).This is the native format InkScape creates its edit files.
Sorta like how Gimp creates XCF extension editables.
InkScape is one huge awesome path and vector image creator which is also free like Gimp.
The guitar when it is finished will be scaled down to icon size and will be my Rocketdock shortcut icon for all my saved guitar tabs.
Of course it will also go into my library of saved vector images for later editing if need be. =).
