This is a reply to +Minor Preference . I cannot reply under your comment as the reply button is not there. I do understand new programmes can be frustrating, that is why we have created a series for Inkscape which is a free vector programme and Gimp which is a raster programme. 
It is possible that you are importing a jpg or a png image into Inkscape. In order to change some of the colours or stretch the text you would have to convert the images into vector using trace. If the images are jpg or png, I suggest you use Gimp. 
Have a look at our videos to see if they will help. Davina

This is a reply to +Kathleen Serra 's question about which button to press to delete. I press the delete button, BUT check out 2.04 into the video where there is a pop-up reminding viewers they need an alpha channel. Without an Alpha channel you cannot delete the background. Hope that helps. Davina

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 and #Gimp 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!

Davina & Caroline :)
