Hi Alvin and others,
This was probably not the question of the original post. Of course one
can embed raster images in SVG. The question is whether it is possible
to create such a raster (or combined raster/vector) image in Inkscape.
With my current knowledge it is not possible in Inkscape, since SVG
doesn't allow real3d or 2.5D transformations.
There is however a working-draft announced that would introduce 2.5D
transformations in SVG:
I invite Inkscape developers to look at this spec draft and provide
feedback. Inkscape is probably the most advanced SVG authoring tool and
it would be cool if Inkscape would be one of the first implementors of
the new draft specification.
It would open a lot of interesting new applications and design
opportunities in the world of 2.5D.
