This tool is for people who want to improve their drawing workflow by automating the conversion of image files into SVG files. Here’s how it works:
Visit the link above, then:
1. Input your name + email.
2. Upload your image files. (Tip, give them descriptive file names)
3. We automatically convert each image file into a stack of SVGs. Up to 6 mono color + 13 color svgs.
4. Within 24 hours we post those SVGs to a public folder.
5. Repeat as often as you like!
*Quality of the output depends on quality of the input. Low resolution images can have weird artifacts when vectorized. (Extreme HD images are too big to handle so we will reduce all images to 2000 pixels on the longest dimension.)
*Not every svg produced will be desirable and that’s OK. This process is automated and will apply the same set of filters to everything even though it only makes sense in some cases and not others.
*Note if you upload anything inappropriate you will be blocked forever. Similarly, you can use the files for any purpose other than selling the svgs. (You may use them to make physical items that you then sell.)
Here is an example output file:
Q: Can I set it to only show me things I submit, and not everyone else’s too?
A: No. Doing do would require significant manual human input, and as long as this service is free we have to do it the easy fully automated way.
Q: Is it really fully automated?
A: For you it is! For me, a human step is required to make sure the input image files are on the up & up, then feed them to my robot. This is also why we suggest waiting 24 hours for a response even though the actual conversion task takes just minutes.
Q: Where can I find that shared drive of SVGs?
Q: Why is this free, whats the catch?
A: I am using this page for advertising purposes. I’m providing this service for free to make people aware of the CylinDraw!
