Today I’m going to do something I haven’t yet done, and that’s create a tutorial where I use both Inkscape and GIMP together to create an end product.

Learn How To Design Logos

Inkscape and GIMP are incredibly valuable design tools, but they serve different purposes. Inkscape is meant for vector creation, whereas GIMP is meant for photo manipulation. Since they’re each so powerful when it comes to handling their respective purposes, using them together can produce great results.

The design we’ll be creating today is a geometric photo collage, where we take 3 different (but related) photos, and slice them up into different segments of a geometric shape that we’ll create with Inkscape.

The elements use in this tutorial are the three photographs below. Simply click on the image to grab a copy of it…
