I'll gladly send back all Christmas presents this year if you can either provide a link to the full size original, or send it to Flickr/dotPhoto so we can buy a full size poster of this.

This has made my day – thank you!

Hi Philipp, I support Eric's idea of a high-res version.

It's great, nice idea and drawings.

But isn't the problem with Quick Hack Bacteria that she is so long living and you get this funny expression on your face when you see that this quick hack which should be replaced after a few days is still used in the live environment of your customer years later?

(Will see about a larger version, I would need to create one as unfortunately I don't have a larger file of this ready yet... maybe the bitmap-to-vector program will come in handy blogoscoped.com/archive/2007-1 ... .)

Inkscape also has a Bitmap to Vector tool. Make sure the image that you import in is selected when you're trying to use it, since it becomes unselected if you run the tool once and then do an undo to tweak the settings.

I did this in Inkscape

Just made a SVG version using VectorMagic, currently double size of original, but height / width can be changed in source to any size. A few minor visual 'bugs', but I am very impressed with the results.

For just a brief moment, I swear I read "Quick Hack Bacteria" description to include "breast-feeding" rather than "fast-breeding". What Would Freud Say?

The poster is done now. It was a little less straightforward than expected due to file size limitations on VectorMagic, so I did over 20 individual smaller VectorMagic conversions, then edited the header line of SVG to resize (I guess there's an easier way than that, though I didn't find any quick zoom menu in Firefox), and embedded the SVG objects in an HTML page from which I took screenshots, which I then combined in PhotoPaint. I could have saved some time by coloring the scans in a higher resolution in the first place, but I guess I know for next time...

Philipp, why the workaround? Is there no free software to either convert SVG or EPS into high-res bitmaps or to compose those files directly into one large file?

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

10 years ago #

David, the EPS export from VectorMagic was sometimes broken, or at least it didn't import into Corel PhotoPaint (even though PhotoPaint can usually handle EPS). I'm sure there's some program to do this though, I tried installing Inkscape but wasn't quickly able to figure out how to do a good conversion. If only VectorMagic would support larger files, but they show you an alert that they downsized your large image to 1 Megapixel... that was the real problem, because the SVG that was produced in that way had a lot of details lost...

Funny, but if only I understood why. Maybe there are still a lot more concepts out there I don't know about in programming.
