Sure, I can help you. It's very easy to do in Inkscape. You can read
about this procedure at my version of the user manual [
http://www.angelfire.com/mi/kevincharles/inkscape/p8c2.html ] and I'm
sure there's also a fine tutorial on the Inkscape book that's available
online at [ http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/index.php ] You
can also join our mailing list and ask your questions there and lots of
people will be happy to help.
See the attached for instructions you can open in Inkscape. If you have
any more questions feel free, fire away. Welcome to Inkscape.
