I’m having a hard time finding the correct terms for what I’m looking for, but I have inverted the color of an image in inkscape and exported the file. when I bring it back in there is always a border around the files and I was wondering if there is a setting I am missing that would have it stay the original size?
Not an expert by any means but that large outline usually indicates there are other items somewhere off to the side of your main image. If you click on it in inkscape and use the nodes tool you will see some nodes way off there somewhere. Delete those and it should be fine?
That is if I am understanding the problem correctly.
I can get around it by using a different program for the invert but would like to just stay in inkscape. I usually get around it by applying a mask or clip and then exporting it again. would like to cut down those steps and learn more but at a loss for the terms to search to get to where i want to be
Willing to upload your original image? I’ve scanned through the settings and I can’t find anywhere that seems to effect that :-/ I definitely had that problem when I rotated - where the “border” would end up way wider than the actual image; I never found a solution for that.
If I don’t export it afterwards and upload it into inkscape it acts as if i did nothing at all on the dashboard.
So I i’m having to export the file from inkscape to the desktop as a png and then bring it back into the program for it to show the changes ive made, be that invert or any other setting in that filters section.
I pretty much give up heh just feel dumb asking the question. Wish there was a setting I could change so when applying a simple invert that it did not toss that invisible alpha box/border around the image. Ill just do my invert in another program from not on i guess, was just trying to simplify my life in the long run by figuring it out in inkscape but it seems to be more hassle than its worth or not possible.
