Apply filter only on clipped bitmap in Inkscape

Graphic Design Asked by Nico on November 30, 2020

I would like to apply a filter in Inkscape only on the clipped part of an object.

I want to apply a filter only on part of a bitmap (shown here as a white square). Typically, I use Set Clip to select the part I care about. However, when I apply e.g. Dark and Glow after setting the clip, it uses the original object as the source.

How can I apply the filter on the clipped selection? Can this be done with clipping? Or is there another way of cropping in Inkscape?

On the right, I applied "Dark and Glow" after setting the Clip

One Answer

Inkscape has very limited bitmap image editing tools. But you can apply Edit > Make a Bitmap Copy to your clipped bitmap image. The result hopefully gets SVG effects in the wanted way.

You must set in preferences high enough create bitmap resolution before making one:
