When it comes to the Trace Image Tool there are a few rules that if you follow them you up your chances to a great trace.
Most of these rules one will find very often in the design and art directions, as the more simple and readable shapes become the easier it is to use them.
This video is part of the Trace Image series,
Next up we’ll be having an overview look at the Trace Image Tool Properties.

uh, hey, guys in today's video with the final cut will be looking at what makes for a good tracing inch. Let's have a quick intro. Yeah, yes, Today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za hat CIA that's today. We have a variety of different Softwares. We do cover and we uploaded daily, so keep an eye there for the new content. Otherwise, if we had back in the programme here now to trace the image, there's, um because it's something you'll use a lot. Let's say you import a raster or like a photo type graphics. Then we have this trace button on top and then, yeah, then you can actually make a shape outlines from it. So that way you can actually, um, yeah, you can make it print ready and country. So if we just had to our first page here, it's just a few notes on what makes for a good trace the image. We will be covering some of these things in, um, future tutorials, so this is kind of just an overview. So now a good note is large in size, so it's pixels wise. If the image is small, then it will be harder for the programme to trace it and then the larger images. So it's high resolution, then it will trace it easy and also a good strong silhouette. This will help for also for the tracing. So if your your image is a good silhouette and that will then also crisp and clear edges, so making sure all these edges are around it's quite crisp. It was like a faded border or a gradient, that faith or drop shadow that fades out in the programme also find that hot, then high contrast in colour. So basically contrast between shapes, the more contrast there is between light and darkness or light. And yeah, highlights in there not so highlights basically like black and white. You know, those type of values, then the better. It will also trace, then also the less detail at Scott then, uh, we'll also do better at tracing. So if you have something with a lot of fancy tools and textures and stuff like that, the programme will also find that hot. Then, uh, also PNG files with transparent background. So it's basically images you can download or buy online that has no background like these ones you can see right through it. Then the programme easily tell where is the outside board. So just to recap again, So piles that are large in size um, they traced better. If it has a strong silhouette like it's something he gets very readable. Just looking at the silhouette, crisp and clear edges and nothing that really fades out into the ages. I contrast, So then make sure your your levels are so the brightness and darkness levels are quite contrasted. And then I'm not a lot of detail, so more simple, vector based graphics looking, I'm odd, you get better. And then also, ideally, if it's a bong with a transparent background, there is a few other formats that, except PNG as all I mean, rather transparent backgrounds with all fillets. But PNG is just one of the most popular science. Otherwise, yeah, that's the basics on although the one on one on getting a good traced image. If you follow these rules, then you change to come out with a good result. We create our website here, so if you guys navigate to softwaretraining.co.za guys can find this video and more like it as you guys can see. We've got a variety of different Softwares. We do cover and we have a search option here. So if you're looking for anything specific, if you don't find what she's looking for and we don't cover it, you can always go request a training video here and then we'll make that for you. Otherwise, Thanks, guys watching and cheers.
