<h1>How to create the bitmap images</h1>

<h2>Create PNG from SVG</h2>
<ol>
	<li>Open the file
	<a href="bndtools-swirl.svg" name="bndtools-swirl.svg">bndtools-swirl.svg</a>
	with
	<a href="http://inkscape.org/" name="Inkscape">Inkspace</a>
	(I'm using version 0.48.1)</li>
	<li>Select in the menu: <b>File->Export Bitmap</b></li>
	<li>Set the bitmap width to <b>2048</b> and the filename to <b>swirl-2048.png</b></li>
	<li>Press the <b>Export</b> button</li>
</ol>

You now have the large version of the bitmap.

<h2>Create PNG image copy with glow</h2>
<ol>
	<li>Open the file
	<a href="swirl-2048.png" name="swirl-2048.png">swirl-2048.png</a>
	with
	<a href="http://www.gimp.org" name="GIMP">GIMP</a>
	(I'm using version 2.6.11)</li>
	<li>Select in the menu: <b>Filters->Light and Shadow->Gradient Flare...</b></li>
	<li>Select the <b>Default</b> entry on the <b>Selector</b> tab, as shown below<br/>
	<img src="README.sources/Gradient Flare - Selector.png" width="615" height="588" alt="Gradient Flare - Selector.png" />
	</li>
	<li>Use the settings as shown below<br/>
	<img src="README.sources/Gradient Flare - Settings.png" width="615" height="588" alt="Gradient Flare - Settings.png" />	
	</li>
	<li>Select in the menu: <b>File->Save As...</b></li>
	<li>Set the filename to <b>swirl-glow-2048.png</b> and press the <b>Save</b> button;
	use the save settings as shown below<br/>
	<img src="README.sources/Save as PNG.png" width="346" height="423" alt="Save as PNG.png" />	
	</li>
</ol>

You now have the large versions (regular and glow) of the bitmaps.
