(How To): Tracing your shape off of an image.

Recommended Posts

Let's say I had and image of a sports car and I wanted to get the outline on that sports car in the form of a shape. I know you can bend and warp the shapes but some of the more complex curvature and angles are slightly complicated. Im able to curve the shape but it's never how I want it.

Hi Nino,


unfortunately, there is no auto tracing option in Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo at the moment. So you would have to use the Pen Tool to create this outline yourself. An excellent introduction to the Pen Tool is available in Affinity Review Issue 1:




You will have to download the iBooks version, as this version contains the multimedia contents for the Pen Tool tutorial.


Hope that helps …  :)
