How to outline an image

Time needed: 1 minute

Effortlessly Outline Any Image in Minutes – just follow this Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Upload a photo or illustration

    Click “Browse” to select your image (JPG, BMP, PNG, WEBP or other supported formats)

  2. Select the line width

    Use the Stroke size slider to adjust the thickness of the lines

  3. Smoother Outlines with Blur

    The Blur slider controls the level of a low-pass Gaussian filter to remove noise from the image. This affects the edges of the image, so larger values on the slider will result in smoother outlines with fewer details.

  4. Select curvature level

    The Curvature option controls the complexity and smoothness of vector lines.

  5. Export as vector graphics

    For export simply select the “SVG” option and click the “Save” button. This creates a clean, scalable SVG file of your image outlines, perfect for further editing or use. View it in any modern browser like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox or another. For additional refinement you can use your favorite SVG editor.
