Steves,

Is there any chance you could post a bigger version of the windows-like liscense sticker? An svg version would be even better (I want to put it nice and BIG on my laptop!) Thanks for all the great images.

Jeff


Save steve's original to disc, open Inklite, import the png, manipulate it till you are happy, save as an svg.. simply done!

Hope that helps you Smile

Thanks, Micko...yeah, what he said, goofy. I can play with that one and see what I can do, but it would be the same basic instructions as Micko said, so feel free..that one is easily the most complicated and I didn't save it as a bigger size, so it would be a resize effort...check back later today if you haven't already resized it on your own...

Thanks Steve,
I will work on resizing it then at some point soon. I still need to get the sticker paper so its not a priority. I was hoping you still had the original because it looks rather "Authehtic Windows"!!! I will post my versionwhen I get it done later on. Thanks for the reply Micko and Steve.

Here's my favourite for a sticker

I think it's Barry's original?

Is it OK to use this? [copyright?]

Hey, Jeff: I've never done an svg, but I did what micko suggested...tell me what you think/if I got it right. Cool I resized the png, sharpened and contrasted it to what I liked, opened it in inkscapelite and saved to an svg then zipped it 'cause the forum doesn't do svg's.

Steves, Micko

I tried the svg file that you posted but it couldn't find the image file that you imported to inkscape. So.... I did it the hard way. I recreated the sticker from scratch in inkscape. I had to find a different background but it is close. I exported it to png since it has an attached bitmap that may disapear if i post the svg file. Is there any way to embed the image in the svg file?

Well let me know what you think.

Jeff

Hmmm ...

@steve_s
I'm mighty impressed with your PID looking sticker. That gives me an idea on how to make puppy CD sets I'm making for people around here looks "authentic" ... Wink

I have a small request though. Will it be possible for you to make one without all the black text in the middle and the left side ? This allows me to print personalized texts with different fonts for each hardware. You know, short hardware specs so its easier to know whats inside. Another thing, a light-grey watermark puppy logo in the center will be great too ...

Well, just a thought ...

Steve.. your prodkey svg is broken Sad . First of all import the original into inklite, then resize in there, then save as plain svg, not compressed. Cool

Cheers

ecomoney: you could probably go to Kinko's or some copy place like that (I only know what we have around here) and they could hook you up; hadn't thought of that.

micko: that is exactly what I did. Oh, well.

planegoofy/Jeff: well done! I'm not redoing my svg since your's came out so well! Looks good to me!

Patriot: that is a tall order..man, I would have saved it in layers if I had known it would be so popular...I will see what I can do, but it would take opening up that one and just cleaning off the middle stuff. Give me a little while and I'll see what I can come up with...

Per Patriot's request, here is the product key sticker without the central text...

Patriot: give me more specifics of what you are after with the watermark, or you can now do it yourself. Gimp, open the image, add a new layer, put whatever you want on that layer, make it more or less opaque, etc.

Hopefully that will help others if they were looking for one to be able to customize their own text... Cool

Patriot,

I just found on inkscapes website how to embed images and how to make them relative, so I will package up the svg file both with the keyboard image embedded and as a reference file. This should give a good template to work from. After you edit the file in inkscape, you can then export as a bitmap which will export the image to a png file.

Till later, enjoy.

Jeff
