How to Vectorised Artwork from Photo & Scanned Images

CNC work with vector files, eg. file extension such as .svg, .dxf, .dwg, stl, ai....etc etc

Normal digital photo or scanned images are in raster format, eg. file extension such as .jpg, .png, .bmp

There is an easy way to do it using free open source Graphic Editing software call InkScape.

I wanted to produce a video tutorial but I quickly realised there are plenty smarter people with sexier voice & production skill... hence this wonderful video tutorial...

The first 7min 30secs is what I use exactly for my CNC work... Then save the result in .svg or export as .pdf.
*ps, some times, "edge Detection" yield a better result... but there are no fix solution, its really all about trial & error.

This is for color pix

So now you know how to capture vector graphics using Digital camera, Scanner & robbing pix from the net...
