ome experiment i did in Inkscape today and i wanna share with all of you guy. I’ll show some easy step how to create the full spectrum circle in Inkscape, and also explain how to polish it in Gimp. Check it out.

Inkscape is a Vector Graphics Editor, similar to Adobe Illustrator, that strives to be SVG Compliant, open source, responsive and extensible.

Below is my result and I’m happy with it.

POLISHING THE FULL SPECTRUM CIRCLE IN GIMP.

Import the full spectrum circle image in Gimp

Go to Filters> Enhance > Unsharp Mask. I use 0.1 for the radius,6.0 for the amount and O for threshold value.

Next, duplicate the layer

Go to Filters> Enhance > Sharpen.

I use 40 for the values. Then flatten the image. Finish.
