Hi,

I've used GIMP in the past, but it's been a while, so it feels like new again.

I have a sketch whose outlines I'd like to convert into a vector image, but I'm having some difficulty doing this.

This is the starting image:

Image



I used the Fuzzy Select Tool to select the outlines of the head, then I pasted the selection as the layer of a new image, and I added a white layer under it to get this:

Image



I then cleaned up some of the edges and insides (using the Eraser Tool) to get more of an outline drawing, like this:

Image



The problem is that I am now stuck; I don't know how to smoothen the outlines so that they are of uniform length; nor do I know how to turn the outline into smooth, vectorised lines.

Is this possible with GIMP at all? Is there a better open source tool for the job?

You might want to refine the drawing a bit more,
because it's very difficult to determine what it's suppose to be.
You can use Gimp's Path Tool.
To trace want lines of the drawing that you want.

However,
Inkscape is much better at this than Gimp
.

Thanks, Wallace.

I will head over to the Inkscape forum to see if I can get an answer there.

You could also try the G'MIC filters, vector painting or BW stencil which will smooth out your lines.
