You mean that in GIMP's vector import dialog you specify a scaling ratio (X Ratio / Y Ratio) of 0.50 ? Then of course you are going to get some aliasing (just the same as if you scaled a raster image by 50%), but the overall result should closely resemble what the original SVG document looked like . . . at a 50% zoom level. Remember that in a vector document "pixels" do not correspond to "on-screen" pixels but are a physical unit of measure. > The biggest red flag that led me to believe something wasn't working correctly > was when opening a vector in GIMP at a size of about 80x50 and all it produced > was an unrecognizable blob of pixels.

If you are taking the 2048x2048 image and scaling it to 80x50 then that is a ratio of less than 10 percent and of course the result is probably going to look like a blurred/aliased mess of pixels. Now if the original SVG document itself had a document size of 80x50 (which is separate from the size of vector elements in it) then GIMP should be able to import it fine. -- Stratadrake strata_ran...@hotmail.com -------------------- Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
