I am pretty sure I have done this before quite awhile ago and found out how easily on here... But am not really seeing it.
I have a png. I want to put it in Inkscape, turn it into an svg that draws well.
This is what I remember on how I think I did it. I traced the outlines. Then made the lines thick enough that it covers all the outlines underneath. Then set the thick lines opacity to 0. Then when I plug into Videoscribe it draws the outline then if there is color the color shows up when done.
When I try doing this now, it shows everything within the invisible line (all lines and colors within it, although the line you see drawn is THINNER than the actual invisible line I created) that's being traced. So I'm doing something very wrong. It's something I did once or twice maybe up to two years ago so I can't remember. I learned how to do this on this site and am not seeing anything like that. All I see is how to create an svg from scratch or trace the lines of an image then deleting the original image so that the outline you traced is the actual visible image you use.
Attached is what it's doing when I try to do this (I only did a partial trace to test it then cut out the final image that I don't want to show). Thanks.
