In this post, we want to look at different ways to convert a PNG or JPG video file format to SVG so that it can be detected on a Scan N Cut or Cricut cutter.
Introducing PNG or JPG to SVG converter websites
Online photo format conversion sites convert PNG or JPG files to SVG by trial and error. In fact, the success of their work often depends on the characteristics of the photo you want to convert. So, if I personally want to change the format of my photo, I usually try it on several online converters to see which one has the better SVG file output.
Note that the appearance of a photo can be deceptive and misleading. Watch the video here to compare their outputs to the Canvas Workspace.
1. With the help of SVGCreator site
Site Svgcreator.com – me many times from this site to convert JPG to SVG have used successfully. Although this has not been 100% successful. Because often when converting files, the final output to delete unwanted items in the file still needs a little editing.
In the image below, you can see the original image on the left and the output of the SVG file on the right. As you can see, some parts of the SVG image are missing, but overall, the output is not bad. In fact, after you cut the file, the output quality will be determined for you.
2- With the help of PicSVG site
Site Picsvg.com – This site is another transducer that outputs different than it was, and I recommend you try it. On this site, the output of the image looks great and the most interesting thing is the compatibility of this image with Canvas Workspace. Keep in mind that you can upload SVG directly to your Scan N Cut. In some cases, doing so may yield better results. The only downside is that if you need to edit the output, it’s harder to do on the Scan N Cut page.
3. With the help of Convertio site (the best site)
Site Convertio – I have to say that I usually turned out that the online site gives JPG to SVG, I like. This online application does not show the output until you download the file you want. In general, most of these sites are very easy to use.
4. With the help of Cutecutter site
Site Cutecutter.com in fact, this is the first time I would try this online converter site. Cutecutter site is slightly different from other sites due to its demo mode. Another big difference of this converter site is that there are more settings for better output.
5. With the help of Online SVG image converter site
Site PNG and JPEG Converter Online – At first glance, it does not seem that these converters do a great job, but the color output is different and you are deceiving them. Of course, I think its output can be compared to some other online converter programs. In fact, it becomes more obvious when you upload a file for cutting. My advice is to zoom in to see broken lines, deleted dots, and unwanted dots.
6. With the help of Vector Magic site
Site Vector Magic – This is a non-free site is fee-based, which means that to use its services, have cost each month to pay a subscription. Converting files on this site looks great. Therefore, if you have to do a lot of conversions, we recommend this site. As you can see, this program delivers the output of the butterfly photo completely and without any problems, but due to non-membership, I could not do much research on it.
This website also offers a downloaded version of the converter.
It was interesting. I was really surprised when I uploaded the CuteCutter file, which was full of broken and open lines, to the Canvas Workspace online and got incredibly good output from the CuteCutter site.
I thought this might be an anomaly in the online version of Canvas Workspace, so I uploaded exactly the same file in the downloaded version to see the differences.
At first glance, I thought the output looked very good, but on further investigation I found that there were also problems, including that the output had several broken lines, such as dashed lines.
What does this mean?
I often hear users say “they have not had any file conversion success” «or” that file converter site does not work “. These are the opinions that are expressed in this regard.
What I have learned is that if you want to get the best output from a photo, it is best to try it on any of the converter sites I mentioned above so you can choose the best output. In fact, I have used this strategy in the past because there is no guarantee of getting an optimal output. Well, I start with a site that I think can get good output and then I check that file. If I am satisfied with it, I will not go to another site, but if I am not satisfied with it, I will try other sites as well.
7. With the help of Aurora SVG Viewer & Converter software
My favorite free converter is Aurora SVG Viewer & Converter, because I got good results in terms of compatible photo output from this site.
Of course, despite what I have said, I always try the tracing method (multiple attempts to achieve the desired result) as my first choice, and only if I am disappointed by it and it does not give me a good result, which of course is very It rarely happens.
8. With the help of Imaengine App
The Imaengine app can be used on Apple products such as iPhone and iPad. This application can produce very good outputs. We recommend that you download this app if you have an Apple device so that you can use it to convert your photos. Unfortunately I have an Android phone and tablet and I still have not been able to find an app that offers good output. If you know of one of these apps, be sure to let me know.
