Here are all the things I did to make my t-shirt design.

Step one I found an image and a background.  I used a flamingo and a colourful background.

I hit file import and chose my flamingo and it was in the middle of the page

I then hit path trace bitmap and used brightness cutoff and hit ok.

I then had a black image.  I hit object fill and stroke.  I hit the X on fill and on stroke I tuned the first and third colour bar all the way up

I then duplicated the pink flamingo for the cutline later.  I then imported my background to the image.

I hit the Flamingo outline hit object raise to top so my flamingo was on top.

I then hit object clip set and had this image.

I then moved my duplicated flamingo outline on top of my picture being a cutline and then I  hit save and sent it to Mr. Sader


Mr. Sader did a whole bunch of stuff with adobe illustrator and sent it to the the printer to print a sticker.  I then used a squeegee snd separated the two layers and put a clear sticky sheet and squeezed all the bubbles out.  I then turned it around and took the sticky paper off and put it on wax paper.

Mr. Sader then took my shirt and put it on the press

He pressed it down for only 7 second to get all the wrinkles and annoying things out.

He then took the sticker of the flamingo took the wax paper off put it on the shirt and pressed down for 14 seconds.

He then opened it and peeled the plastic off the sticker.  He then put another piece of wax paper on the shirt and pressed down for another 7 seconds

When it was done he took it out and put it on a surface so it doesn’t fold on itself and I then had a t-shirt.

Here is a picture of me wearing it.

Live trace

Here is a tutorial of how I did my live trace.

First I found an image a solid colour for the most part.  What I chose was a club penguin, penguin because it is a solid colour I then hit file import in inkscape and chose my image from downloads.

I then hit path trace bitmap

I then had a screen open with a whole bunch of options so what I did was chose brightness cutoff and hit ok on the bottom right hand corner

I then right clicked on my first image with colour and cut it.

I then ended up with my final image of my club penguin penguin black and white

If I wanted just the outline I would hit shift and colour to black and then without shift hit the no colour option.

Inkscape: vector image trace.

what I have started doing today is tracing over an image and making it into a cartoon looking thing.  First thing I did was find a picture I chose a flamingo because I like flamingos.  The first thing I did was hit file and import.  When I found my photo I imported it on then what I did was hit document properties and chose PX instead of MM and I also turned of page border.

I then hit view and hit custom on it. I then hit Zoom 1 : 1.

I then hit the edit objects colours etc button and then the layers button two buttons to the right.

I then turned the transparency of the first image down to about 60 and created a new layer.    I then hit the bezier tool and to click once on one place then I held down click and Made a curve and hit enter to make a black line I did that all around and then filled it with dark grey.  I then made a new layer and repeated with the head body etc.

I ended up with 3 different one with a background and 2 without
