Vectorize an image using Inkscape

And now, for something completely different.

For a coming event we want to use logos from different bars and cafes around the block. The idea is to do a little of propaganda: banners, t-shirts, mugs all the way!

Some bars have their fancy logos already as a vector image. Other ones don’t even have a computer where the logo is stored.

In this post we’ll see how to create a vector file from a pixmap (jpg, png, whatever raster format that Inkscape can open). With a couple of examples, a graceful one and a crazy one.

There’s a lot of manuals online for this, an in-depth one with good examples can be found in Tavmjong Bah’s website.

vectorizing!
