Creating icons in InkScape

Because of my recent obsession to update my skills on Design (I think I am a decent programmer and with the design skills on my resume, it would be nice!), I created my first icon using Inkscape.


Ok – this isnt anyway close to the normal most stupid looking icons but hey I have an excuse – I am not a designer.

Anyway, as you work on Inkscape and try exporting your work as icon, I could not notice any export format as .ico. So here is what i did. I exported my work as a PNG (File->Export as Bitmap..) and then using I converted my PNG  to an icon!

For tutorial on working with inkscape

change episode-055 from episode-001 onwards.
