Well... this is what I did with the .eps file to scale and import it into the GIMP: 1. Open file with Inkscape, accepting default import options. 2. Select object (one click) if it is not already selected. 3. Do File > Export Bitmap, make sure Export Area is set to Selection, set the desired width in pixels *, save as .png (the default format). 4. Import the resulting .png file into the GIMP. The .eps image is handled as a vector object in Inkscape, so the scaling should be "perfect". The .png format is lossless, and uses transparency to anti-alias against a transparent background (as in the image at hand), so the use of an intermediate file as described should not reduce image quality vs. a direct import operation.
