Inkscape can do even more. We can import the bitmaps we had already put so much work in to Inkscape and convert them with a few mouse clicks to nice vector graphics.
Here is how to do that:
- Open Inkscape.
- Choose "File - Import" to import a bitmap file.
- Choose to "embed" the image.
- Select the image with the select tool (↖).
Select Path - Trace Bitmap... for settings (below shown for 2 colors = "Scans"):
Select "Update" for a preview until settings are fine.
- Start tracing with "OK".
Now a vectorized image of your original bitmap will be seen on top of the bitmap. We can resize or move this newly created object, delete the original image, or choose to "Object - Ungroup" in case we need to adapt shapes or colour of subobject created.
The advantage of a vector graphic can most rapidly be seen when we increase it's size. Shown below was zooming to 2500%. Top is the original bitmap, bottom is the vectorized object:
