Sorting .bmp into layers by color

Asked by David Riseberg on 2013-01-03

If I cut and paste a .bmp into the document window, then right click path > left click Trace Bitmap, I have 8 different colors in my picture. I need to be able to differentiate the 8 colors, and create a layer for each color. By tracing the bitmap, I am simply creating a single layer, for the entire bitmap. How do I sort the colors, individually?
Thanks
Dave

Hello Dave,

Did you try to trace the BMP in multiple scan mode? If you select "color" and set the scans value to 8, it should give you 8 different scans, one for each color (details at http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Trace-Multi.html).

Can you help with this problem?
