Icons in Inkscape - mini-tut by daj Icons in Inkscape - mini-tut by daj
I tried writing a tutorial for Inkscape but I'm really bad at explaining things. It's a lot easier if I just show you :D

This is the basic process I go through when I make an icon or any vector work really. Created all in Inkscape, except for jpeg conversion.

Hi

Thank you for your great tutorial! I'm fairly new to all this. I do have one question though, what is the best format to save icons to? When I save normally it will save it to .svg but I know I can export it to .png as well. What do u recommend? I would like to keep the quality as high as possible. Also, is it possible to save the icon in a format that window can use such as .ico? I am creating a set of icons for Linux/Windows and eventually for docks.

Thx!

I don't know what icon format Windows version above XP use...for XP it was .ico (restricted to 32x32px). If you create icons for Linux then .png is the format of choice. Linux also handles svg as icon format.

As said, I am not sure, but I guess Windows Vista or Windows 7 can handle .png as icon files too!?
