Bug Description


that's a wish. :-)

I found that raster images (e.g. png) generated by inkscape get better by exporting them with twice the width and the height and then scaling them down (e.g. with imagemagick) by 50%, compared to a regular export from inkscape. This causes some anti aliasing effect.

Unfortunately, there is no simple way to tell inkscape on the command line to export a raster image with twice the normal size. You need to know the regular size and then pass the new size with -w and -h parameters.

Would be really nice if the -w and -h parameters could also accept percentages, e.g.

inkscape -e example.png -w 200% -h 200% example.svg

(or even better, could perform the antialiasing effect internally on request).
