    Hey Nick, this tutorial was great as like the rest of your videos. Just had one thing on mind:

    I had recently used GIMP to make an FB cover with a collage of around 20 mini, say stamp size, photos, and had to make use of grids and scaling and crop tools to achieve the desired result.

    In such instances where you have to deal with a lot of photographs, which tool would you prefer in terms of ease of making and quality of end product?

    My InkScape doesn't look anything like what the people on YouTube are using. I could probably use it if it did. As it stands, it is a frustrating piece of junk.

    You are awesome man. watching your tutorials for me is like listening to a great music 😀 it makes my brain work differently. your voice, your tone of speaking, your methods of teaching, all of them are so professional and it make me feel I'm watching a commercial website for education not YouTube :D.
     thank you so much for your efforts and for your time.
    I can see people ask you for more tutorial for other fields like flyers and etc and you answer comments nicely. I'm a big fan of you and you are my hero 😀
    amazing people like you and creators of inkscape inspires me to use inkscape instead of pirated version of commercial products.

    Thanks for all tutorials. 🙂 . Crazy, , after clip set, in 0.91r/linuxmint18, the picture-frame do not fit to the black rectangle. I saw the frame outside from the rectangle from the picture Iwant to clip and after that it is no way to center on horizontal axis ….. it take for that the original picture size. Do not know how I can search for result, maybe other users can help me. Sample http://i682.photobucket.com/albums/vv183/sps31/vpn18_zps1neva8wi.png
