Starting this topic as having finished some neat little filters, uploaded to openclipart and thought it would get a more focused attention here.


Click on the images for their svg source.

They are uploaded at ocal in the collections of

filter in action
and
filter pack



Edit:
Since the packs got so many, made a few thematic collections.
paper and pencil
gradient map
hatching and halftone
halftone screening templates
wood grain
stone textures
fabric and painting
blackboard art
fire and dust
abstract nonfigurative
animated
soil and vegetation
metal rust and gliss
liquid and glass
text effect

realistc looking examples



Edit 2:
Adding in some more links.

Omg Lazur, those are Amazing!!  And they could be used for many other things than what their names imply.

You know what we could do?  I could make an album in the gallery for filters, where anyone could upload their SVG filter files.  I was thinking of doing that for extensions too. 

Also, I think there's a category on the Inkscape website for filters....  Yes.  It doesn't show as on the gallery page.  But if you click Upload, you can see "Inkscape Filter Set" in the Category dropdown list.  (I'm not sure why it doesn't show on the front page, but I'll ask Maren.)

Thank's!

At inkscape's site I have four images uploaded and the quota is already used up by 66%.
Though filters alone are not large in size but have doubts it's good for showcasing AND storing useful goodies at the same limited space.

Before reorganising the smc gallery, I would wait gaining more traffic.

What's "smc gallery"?

Yes, I see what you mean about the quota.  I will bring this up on the Docs mailing list (where website issues belong).  Somehow we need to give members who are contributing resources more space.  If we want people to upload resources, they need the space to do it.   (I'm thinking it's possible that uploaded resources, as opposed to artwork, might not count towards the quota, but I'm not positive.)

Right now, I think they have individually given certain people more space (like jabiertxof, e.g.).  Anyway, I'll let you know what happens.

Hmm it is cpg -coppermine photo gallery. Remembered it wrong.
(Sm was familiar from the smf -simple machines forum. Mixed it up with the speed modelling contests, not sure how.)

Oh ok.  No it would not be any major re-organizing.  I would just add a new category -- something like Inkscape Resources.  Then 2 new albums -- Extensions and Filters.  Maybe one for templates too, and you could upload those document templates that you made a while ago.

Ragnar has an extension which he put in his personal gallery.  But I think I can move it.  (He sure has been a stranger lately.  Now and then he answers a message at IF.  I write "Hi stranger" but he never even comes back to see it.  Anyway, he probably never notice if I moved it.)

Results of my inquiry about quotas.  At the moment, the website admins want to "manually" increase the quota for those who request it, rather than create any other kind of arrangement.

And good news!  Just on my mention, they've already increased your space.  They didn't say how much, so let me know..  I'm just curious.

Thank you for the mention, now it is at 25%. Will try to use it better than before, and, upload some of the more polished ones there too.

Speaking of unpolished filters, these latest ones didn't turn out simple/resource worthy, but hey, they are still "filters in action":









(Original idea was to mimmick a look similar to that silver silk wave which originated here.
No progress without failed attempts I guess.)

Ooohh, some of those grunge filters look like they might make nice woodgrain textures!  The gold ones too, except you'd have to change the color probably (haven't looked to see how they are made yet).

Ok here's how I'll solve the question about using the gallery.  If I made the special albums (1 for filters) would you use them?  It doesn't make sense to make new albums if I know they won't be used.  But if you would use them, it's really simple to add new ones.

Since we finally got the tutorial for making filters, and there are so many people making them now, I haven't even tried myself.  Hopefully I'll get my computer....well, either fixed, or I'll know for sure it's dying....next Tuesday.  I haven't been able to use Inkscape since I lost my mouse (2 weeks ago), so I'll be really happy when it's either fixed or I get a new machine.  Anyway, what I want is a fabrics pack....although I'd be happy with just 1 good fabric filter.  Just a simple linen type of fabric would be great.  But eventually I'll be able to read the tutorial, and try it myself.  (there are SO many different kinds of fabrics!)

Mentioned tutorials, if anyone wonders:

Tav's 1st
Tav's 2nd

The gold and the grunge ones are using flood fill, not the source object's colours.
They can still be edited -made the grunge by tweaking the gold's settings. (Guess I'm doing wrong the alchemist's work...)

Fabric texture needs to be drawn already, if you follow along those steps. For a custom filter pack I would go a different direction.


On the gallery, I would use ocal at first place because they can generate thumbnail images automatically for uploaded images.
Then I can upload here and at inkscape's gallery, if it would make sence.

Just made this one since my last post:



This filter doesn't just distresses a pre-made pattern fill, but the texture/pattern itself is generated too.
In other words it can be applied on objects with a solid fill/gradient.

(Only flaw I couldn't figure out yet is how to change the luminance without altering the saturation. If more blending modes will be available... maybe I should upgrade to a 0.92 devbuild.)

Also it can be added to any object for that matter.
Useful to simulate an fine art canvas.



(The original without filtering.)

Hah!  I was thinking of asking you for that, but I didn't think it would be possible.  The plaid part, yes, I thought that would be possible.  But it would be pretty hard....or more like resource heavy, to make the texture like you did the first time, AND the plaid.   So that it looks very realistic

If I could just get my computer fixed, I could open these and see how you did it.  Hopefully soon....

Didn't copy/pasted the previous filter you mention here, tried something simpler without blurring and whatnot.



By the way, you can stack two filters even by applying one of them to an object, grouping it, then adding the other filter to the group.

This is a compare how it looks if the plaid was grouped and the fabric filter added to the group.
