Creating an outline or wireframe from an image

Recommended Posts

I have looked in the forums and can not find an answer.


I use Affinity Designer on a MAC


I want to import an image and create a line drawing of the image for a friend who wants to use it for her painting class.


I can not remember what software I used, but in the dark distant past, I am sure I selected a function and adjusted the brightness or something until I got enough lines to give me my line drawing.  The program may have been Corel Draw.


Is this possible with AD.

Hi mcl,

You are probably talking about a tracing function (PowerTRACE in the case of CorelDraw), that is, converting an image to vector objects/lineart.

Affinity Designer doesn't have such a function. There's plans to implement one if its output/results are up to what developers expect in terms of quality, but for now you have to use a third party application like Inkscape (open source), Super Vectorizer 2Vector Magic or a web service to do the conversion.
