I wanted to cut a bitmap file… FAIL! Have to make it a vector file right? No problem. Just open up inkscape and change the bitmap into a vector file and off we go… FAIL! It cut two lines - one on the outside of the bitmap trace and another on the inside… Hmmmm… What to do?
I tried and tried to find a workaround in inkscape to make the centerline trace and… nothing.
Then, I tried and tried to get various plug-ins for inkscape that were supposed to do it and couldn’t get the plug-ins to plug in to inkscape.
Finally - I found a website that you can simply drag and drop a bitmap and it will vectorize it wtih a centerline trace and it does a good job!!!
Hope that can help you!
