Title: Foil graphics
Post by: SUPdad on April 10, 2021, 10:05:37 PM
Anyone have cool black/white simple foil related graphics, preferably in svg format?  Looking for either just foil/mast or rider on foil...anything cool but simple. Please excuse my ignorance...donít know what itís called but maybe line art stuff?

Maybe the LAFC logo. It's in the top right of that image.

If you'd like one of them larger, or have a photo you'd like converted...PM me with what you'd like, and (hopefully) I'll be able to help you get what you're looking for.

On the second one I added the paddle from the prone guy of the last last pic, or can remove a paddle if you find a sup foiler, and would like it as a prone foiler like I did with the first to fourth image (lost his hand obviously, because I got lazy, and didn't end up using the pic anyway). ;) ;D

EDIT to add: the foil image (as crappy as it may be...but I used it to create my logo scene below my user name)

Thanks, guys!  I like the LAFC logo and also Califoiliaís pic on the bottom left (but without the water) and also of the foil itself. I want to try to engrave something like this but I donít have a lot of experience doing graphics. I know how to do it if the pic has a single outline, meaning not solid areas. Is there a way to convert a pic easily?

Vector Graphics is one name for them.  SVG is a file format.

Adobe illustrator has a Image Trace feature that will trace any photograph/drawing and convert it to line art or a scalable graphics file.  I would guess there is a free ware equivalent out there.

Here's the lower left w/o water...

A free, easy to use software to make scalable vector graphics (svg) is Inkscape. (https://inkscape.org) I'm not too computer literate, and I'm able to manage to get some done w/o too much trouble (if I'm lucky...lol)

Yeah, if you engrave take a few minutes to check Inkscape. Worth the time.

Thanks, guys. I actually have Inkscape and itís just so complicated I have no idea how to use it. :o Took me forever to learn the cad/cam I use I just donít have the time to dedicate to learning another program. Plus Iím forgetful so that doesnít help.  ;D
