I created this poster. Bassel is my best friend. Please contact me if you have more questions @rejon
- First, open Inkscape and set your poster size. For this, let's set the image to A4 size in the document properties dialog.
- Import the selected Freebassel image, found from Openclipart.
- Save the clipart SVG by right-clicking the image, and Save Link As to your computer.
- Edit the image until you get the parts you need. For this, I wanted to get Bassel's face.
- Create a bold text with the text tool that says "FREEBASSEL".
- Save the file.
- Print out your file to see how it looks.
- If the print looks good, you are done. If you aren't happy, keep adjusting the results.
- Share your poster with the world! Here is mine:
- Let us know how the process went for you and feel free to share your file!
- First try to write down your ideas onto a piece of paper.
