Hi ladies, see this is dated mid last year, do hope you still read it~
I have made a basic, simple logo using INKSCAPE helped by your youtube tuts. It is essentially in 3 parts, each using a different font and size.  You can view it on our G+ page.

On large screens is displays au natural, but on some apps, esp smaller screens it tends to separate into the 3 parts. You can see this if you view the website on say a mobile or even smaller laptop.

However, if saved to a PNG is displays normally on all screen sizes, but PNG kind of defeats the purpose.

My guess is that somehow saving in PNG "joins"  the 3 bits together , similar to "flattening" layers in other apps, whereas saving as an editable SVG doesn't. So I am wondering how can I rectify this?

I have tried many things, but as I am really new to Ink I have reached the stage where I am now confusing myself~ Any thoughts?
Greatly appreciated.
Cheers
peter

Stand out from the crowd - make your own graphics with our help!
Introduction
Hello! Davina & Caroline here!

Who we are
We are 2 sisters living in Wales and we are the creators of Useful Graphic Design Tutorials 

What we do
We show small business owners how to create their own graphics & embellish photographs using free graphic design software (#Inkscape, #iPiccy, #Canva initially).

Who we do this for
We aim to work with beginners to graphics software and help them through their first tentative steps, and also help more experienced people develop their skills.

We do this so that it
  • Eliminates the need for costly design services when first starting out
  • Gives great flexibility in creating custom graphics
  • Saves time in not having to wait for freelancers to do the work
  • Small business owners can express their creativity and stand out from the crowd

We do this using free videos of up to 10 minutes, plus work sheets. We take you through how to create an image in a step by step process.

We also do produce short videos with specific outcomes, for example:
  • How to remove the white background from an image
  • How to create a vector image from a jpeg
  • What are layers and how do they work
  • How to create text and place it on an image/photo
and much, much more.

We also support you in answering any questions if you get stuck!

Oh, and we have lots of fun doing all this!
