Spiral Picture with vinyl or HTV

Spiral Pictures who hasnt seen them.

It looks kinda tricky but it isnt as hard as it seems.

It al starts with a cute an perfect picture

Spiral Betty is the website everyone uses to get their pictures turned into a spiral. Unfortunately you can only download a jpg file so you need to do some tracing.

You can adjust your spiral on 4 levels, how many spirals you want, you can crop your picture, you can make your picture lighter and darker and give it more or less contrast.

When you have adjust your picture you can download the jpg.

You can trace the jpg in Scal, inkscape, design space, illustrator and other programs that can trace images and turn them in to svg files.

For the scan n cut users i advice to put your file into fcm because that extenstion loads way faster then svg in the machine.

In this tutorial i used inkscape but i prefer SCAL that is my design program i always use.

Inkscape

Inkscape is one of the few programs i know that is free and has a lot of features.

How ever if you don’t take the proper steps in inkscape it can be a very frustrating program.

Iam a visual person meaning i rather see things done then read about it. When i need to explain something which can’t be put in words within a few lines i rather make a video.

What is this video about?
