  1. Wow, this was a terrific video, THANKS so much, I guess I will go get Gimp now. Thanks again Ken and “Inkscape”, have a great vacation.

  2. You make it look so easy! Thank you! I have tried cleaning images up in Inkscape, but was not satisfied with the result. Will definitely give GIMP a try!
