INKSCAPE effects overview and comparison

carnivora publishing inkscape effects overview without effect comparison and overview Welcome here in Inkscape effects overview!
I made this page because Inkscape runs significantly slower on Ubuntu (in comparison to windows) and it is quite annoying to search through the effects, trying to find that one right for you, when there is a minute delay between render and zooming in/out. So i wanted to print kind of cheat sheet, a gallery of effects i can look into, when i will need to use some effect. Basicaly something that will allow me to avoid trying which effects does fit by chance all the time gain and again. It proved to be quite a lot of work, not cost-efective just for one person purposes. So i decided to share it with you. Here is how it works:

This is a picture made in Inkscape with combination of text fields, curves, transparent colors, color transitions etc. Each effect has been applied and rendered. Then i made this chart with them. They are in same category order as in Inkscape. When you hover your mouse over your effect, the unedited version will appear above it (with thick gray border), so you can compare what is different. Because the site is quite long, you can use the navigation list of effect categories here. And that´s it! Hope you´ll find it useful.
