Trace Image Dialog (Pro/Studio)
|Top Previous Next|
The Trace Image dialog, available in the Pro and Studio editions of Genetica, can be used to convert a bitmap image into a vector illustration. It can be accessed from the Canvas node's Snippet tool. You will be asked to select the image you wish to trace, then the dialog will appear as shown below.
The original image is shown in the left image pane, while the right pane shows a preview of what the traced result will look like with the current options. The number of controls points that will be used by the resulting design is shown above the preview, and their locations are shown as red dots when the mouse hovers over the preview. Watch the number of control points as you adjust the dialog's properties. Strive to use the minimum number of control points that gives an acceptable result.
Click OK once you see a desired result. The traced image will be placed into the Canvas workspace, and can be tweaked with the Edit tool.
