Converting Silhouette Studio Files to SVG

This topic is essential to get guidelines about how it will help us to open the Studio files in other software programs and guideways to share it with friends. We will now provide information about converting from the studio file to SVG in a new, comfortable, FREE, and quick way.

There has been a while now, we have considered the idea of Studio files conversion to SVG files. We came to know an issue that the Inkscape tracing was not as good enough as the tracing in most other software, so we had to leave that part out of consideration. We are excited to share with you foolproof ways to convert your studio Files to SVG, as this has been a very mini revelation.

As most tracing is dependent on the contrast and this conversion file is as same as any other conversion, so you will have to open your file in “Silhouette studio.” You can change your colors to white or black. But this will not work well with the color design. 

For MAC Users: for taking the screenshot of designs in Silhouette studio, you need to use the Grab program (you can search “’Grab” in the Finder option). This option will save the selected design as .tiff as it works well for converting to SVG anytime later during the process. 

For PC users: you can choose from two opposite directions: first is to take the screenshot and then paste it into the Paint, then the part you want to convert isolate it. Once you get the design you wish to and must keep, go forward and save it as a JPEG. 

The second option is to utilize your “Bullzip printer” for printing the files as JPEG. Mostly this will provide better quality and will be much easier for the user than a screenshot. Once you get your JPEG into black and white, then you can pull up the “” As you want to make sure, you can rush towards the image converter for the SVG formats for your satisfaction. In the First step, you will need to go forward and then upload the already created JPEG. Click the option “browse” and then locate it onto your computer. 

After the image locator, you will see some options while scrolling down. Take my suggestion and go for “COLOR: MONOCHROME” and “ENHANCE: SHARPEN.” But it’s up to you; you can still go around and see which works best for you. When you are done, then choose “Convert File.”

Once you convert your file, your computer forwards you to decide what to do with the new “SVG file.” You can see below that I choose to save the file to my laptop. There are chances that your operating system works differently and prompts you differently as it was dependent on what operating system you are using.

For checking the SVG quality, you can import it into your Library in “Silhouette Studio.” For checking whether these are direct duplicates of your Studio files, you can always test these files.  

You can see that my files are the same. It has opened many sharing opportunities to convert your files into SVG format as it is either between other crafters and yourself or between your different software designs and Silhouette studio designs.
