  • Photo to Pattern Converter

    Hello

    I recently made a webpage where you can instantly convert a photo to a pattern or stencil:

    http://online.rapidresizer.com/photo-to-pattern

    It's not magical. It won't make a perfectly usable pattern. But it's a good starting point and gives you something to print that doesn't cost a fortune in ink. Works best when there's a clear contrast between foreground and background.

    You don't have to install any software. Works on Windows and Macs.

    You can save the picture file to your computer and print it using your preferred program.

    I also now offer a free online raster to vector converter at
    http://online.rapidresizer.com/tracer.php
    So you can edit the pattern in your favorite drawing program without having to manually trace it.

    Please let me know what you think. Ideas for improvements are welcome.

          Here is a pattern of a bearded dragon that I just made using your converter. This was a bit extreme because of the scale detail but it worked like a charm!
          Thanks again

            Pat, Thank you for sharing, will definitely save much work.
            I couldn't get the raster to vector to work after I chose the pic.
            I'm a computer dummy so i'm sure it's me. What did I do wrong?

                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
