Inkscape - Export a transparent PNG from the QuantumWarp SVG

Written by

The following instructions are how to export a transparent PNG version of my QuantumWarp logo from a SVG using Inkscape.

Once exported to make the white version you can manually change the black to white by using paint.net

Square Logo (400 x 400 / QW)

  • Configure the layers to the square version (i.e. all in viewport)
  • File --> Export Bitmap
  • Select 'Page'
    Export Bitmap Page
  • Select desktop for output
  • Export

Wide Logo (400 x 1000 / QuantumWarp)

Option 1

  • In Document Properties (under the 'File' menu),
    Document Properties
    alter Custom size to
    Width:1000.00
    Height:400.00
  • File --> Export Bitmap
  • Select 'Page'
    Export Bitmap Page
  • Select folder for output
  • Export

Option 2

  • Configure the layers to the long version
  • File --> Export Bitmap
  • Select 'Drawing' (Custom might work the same.)
  • You will get some settings like this below
    Export Bitmap Drawing
  • Change the settings in this order
    x0 = 0.000
    y0 = 0.000
    x1 = 1000.000
    y1 = 400.000
  • This should give
    Width: 1000px at 90.00 dpi
    Height: 400px at 90.00 dpi
  • Select folder for output
  • Export
