- One of the best things about vector…are those sharp, crisp edges of objects…can also be limiting to your creativity…and makes things look too much like computer graphics.…Fortunately, in Inkscape, you can create a variety…of interesting looks by softening the edges…of objects by blurring them.…Let's check it out.…There are a few different places in Inkscape…to apply blurs to objects.…One is to use the tweak tool…and select this last option here…and then drag over the objects that you want to blur.…And I show that in the movie on the tweak tool.…
Another way of blurring is to apply filters…to selected objects and you can see…there is a whole menu full of blur choices here.…But the simplest way to apply a blur…is to just go to the fill and stroke dialogue…and right here is a blur slider.…So to blur an object, just select it…and drag or click the slider or click the number…on the right-hand side and type in the blur value…that you want right here.…For example, I can create a depth of field effect…by blurring some of the trees in this image.…
