Is there some way to embed bitmaps in SVG?
I was looking at a file I made with a bitmap in it and noticed that
the absolute path to the image was hardcoded into the .svg, making
this svg useless on any machine but my own.
So is there some way to embed bitmap pixel data in SVG? Does the
standard even allow that?
Yup, see Effects > Images
Aside from that is there some way to get Inkscape to copy linked
images to be side-by-side with the svg and use relative paths rather
than absolute paths?
Not easily afaik.
Does the w3c have some sort of .jar-like standard for creating svg
bundles that include both a main svg and associated bitmaps and other
linked content all-in-one? That seems like it would be the ideal
Not that I know of, but note there's an 'inkjar' functionality buried in
Inkscape itself for handling jar-based file collections. I believe this
works pretty well, it's just poorly advertised. If you're interested in
working on this, it could probably benefit from gaining better exposure
in the File menu UI.
