How do I convert a jpg picture to vector format

Recommended Posts

I have a jpg-picture where I want to change colors, but how do I split the photo into shapes? I.e. how do I convert the jpg to vector-format.

Do you want to vectorise the image or just change the colours?

If vectorising you will either need an app to trace the bitmap image, Affinity apps don't have that facility but there are online vectorisers: vectorizer.io - https://www.autotracer.org - https://www.photopea.com/tuts/vectorize-raster-images/  and also the free app Inkscape has a built-in trace tool.

Most trace tools will give you something more akin to a jigsaw puzzle of colours.

Or you can draw around the image with the pen tool to make blocks of colours and colour them yourself. This is more labour intensive but much more controllable.

I agree on Inkscape as a valid tool and it has options for color or black&white results that are adjustable and has a preview option.
