Tracing PNG & JPEG in Silhouette Studio

Leave a comment

I belong to a few Silhouette related Facebook pages.  They are a wonderful support group for beginners and experienced users.

More and more I see questions about tracing images in the Silhouette software in order to make them cut files.  This is one of the main reasons I decided to go with the Silhouette brand cutting machine.

You are able to take any image and make your own cutting file.  I make a lot of decorations and invitations in Photoshop, then cut them with my Silhouette.

However, the tracing tool in the software is not that intuitive, so there is usually a number of questions about tracing.  I put together this power point to help someone with tracing and thought I would share it with everybody.

Please note, I have the second version of the software, as I have not taken the plunge and upgraded to the third version.  While the settings and option are the same, their location and how you do things might be different.  I also have the designer edition, but everything in the tutorial is available in the standard addition.

Happy Crafting
