Inkscape: Where each element is like a layer

One of the main reasons why Inkscape is more used to create publicity is because it treats each element as an individual layer. This allows you to elaborate a main artwork and simply reorganize the elements that are part of it into a new design so you can forget about the eraser or complicated edits.

At Gimp, if you draw several figures and you don’t place each one on a new layer, when you try to separate them, you won’t be able to since all the components we did are part of a single layer, however, if we do the same figures at Inkscape, difference is that we can separate them and work with them as individual elements since each element will behave as a layer.

As example, this web design was made with Inkscape, so take a look, leave a comment and don’t forget to subscribe to my youtube channel and to this portal so you can keep learning on an easy and fast!

    Gracias por la explicación, recién me estoy adentrando en el uso de estos dos programas. Aunque la verdad me ha parecido muy fácil el uso de Inkscape a diferencia de Gimp, que para mi punto de vista personal es algo más difícil.

    Hola Tatica, muy bueno tu blog. ¿Sería posible que algún día pudieses poner un video del proceso de alguno tus trabajos profesionales en Inkscape mientras lo vas elaborando?, es decir, algo similar a lo que hacen (o hacían) en Gracias y saludos desde México
