Chapter 16. Filter Effects—Preset

Table of Contents

Filter Effects (Filters) are a feature of SVG that allow an SVG viewer to change the presentation of an object in a well-defined manner such as adding texture to a Fill, giving an object a blurred shadow, or modifying the object's color. Inkscape supports almost all SVG Filter primitives (see next chapter) and includes many Preset (predefined) filters.

[Warning]Browser Filter Support

Support of Filters is rather new in many web browsers. Don't be surprised to find bugs. Internet Explorer 9 will still not support filters. For work-arounds, see the section called “Supporting Older Browsers”.

This chapter covers Preset filters, that is those Filters that are preconstructed for your use. The following chapter covers Custom filters where you build the filters yourself.
