Dear Inkscape developers,
My name is Christopher Brown, and I have just submitted my application to
the Google Summer of Code for Inkscape.
My abstract follows in this message, and my full project description can be
found at this location: http://audiere.googlepages.com/gsoc-description.pdf
"Inkscape was built purely as a vector editor =96 a GUI, you might say, for
SVG. But the need has arisen for raster capabilities within the Inkscape
application. Previous to this capability, the user would have to perform
such raster post-production in a different application, such as the GIMP or
Photoshop. Often this may not be anything more complicated than a
punch/explosion effect or a windswept filter. This can be accomplished by
integrating these effects, especially those provided by ImageMagick,
directly into the Inkscape interface. The results will not be SVG,
unfortunately, but they will be bitmaps, as the user desires."
I hope soon to be working with you guys,
