These effects extract or embed bitmap images from or into an Inkscape file.

Extract One Image

This effect will extract the selected bitmap image from the drawing. The destination file name must be given (and not just the path [Bug]). The filename extension (e.g., “.png”) is automatically added.

Embed All Images

Normally Inkscape keeps references to external graphics files for included bitmap images. It is possible to embed the images inside an Inkscape SVG file with this effect. Simply call this effect to embed all bitmap images in the file. This may make your SVG file quite large. Only PNG and JPEG files may be embedded.
