Censor An Image In GIMP

Maybe it's your license plate number. A friend who wants to keep their picture private. Someone's email address that you want to hide in a screenshot. Cropping isn't the most effective way every time, and sometimes you need to censor it neatly and unobtrusively. There's a bunch of ways to do so - I'll try to help you find the one that fits you best.

I'll use a public domain image of an F-35 with identification markings on the tail wing. Let's try to (for whatever reason) hide them. Open your image up in GIMP.

Open SVGs In Microsoft Office (Using Inkscape)

The SVG file format is an open standard for vector imagery, supported by many apps and practically all browsers. Strangely, Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint don't. I've got no idea why.

Now, many places like OpenClipArt and Clker deliver public domain (free, no copyright) vector artwork that you can use for any purpose. You might also have done some vector designs yourself and want to include it in your work.
