I was just playing around with a JPG, a filter, and Trace Bitmap.
The filter is Filters menu > Image Paint and Draw > Posterize Basic.
No matter what settings I use for that filter, for example Levels =
1 or Levels = 10 (which produce very different results) after I use Trace
Bitmap, the result is identical to if I use Trace Bitmap with no filter at
What gives? Doesn't Trace Bitmap "see" the filter? I can provide
screenshots or examples, if necessary.
I don't think it can. The Bitmap tracer is going to look at the actual
bitmap stored in the svg data, not the generated one after filters and
maybe even other svg objects sitting on top.
