In today’s world people value other qualities such as wealth, physical appearance, and social status rather than kindness and compassion. Even corporates and education institutions ignore this valuable attribute when hiring employees. This is why, perhaps, people have come to ignore kindness all together and have adapted other meaningless traits. Today this work is engulfed in war, famine and poverty only because our priorities aren’t set straight. World leaders also should take a notice of it and instead of spreading hate they should teach people to spread kindness to other people irrespective of their color or religion. Kindness should be led by example. Institutions especially education and corporate giants must instill kindness in their students and employees respectively so that they in turn will spread it. Employees should look for emotional intelligence as well as basic human traits in employees. It is true that strong leadership values such as confidence, intelligence, smartness and accountability are important in today’s work and will get most of the work done anywhere but perhaps kindness should also be added to the list as well. It will make a person more compassionate, down to earth and patient. I believe a kind person is an asset to the world and the organization he/she works for. A kind person knows and understand the plight of everyone around him/her and therefore knows how to deal with every individual differently. Yes, kindness is underrated. It has been confused with weakness and meekness when it is quite the opposite. Kindness makes a person strong even in the face of difficulties and sorrows. Its my experience that you never forget a kind face or someone who has been kind to you in the past. Also, a kind deed never goes ignored. Kindness has won hot arguments and has turned enemies into friends. I believe kindness is a path a person chooses herself/himself. It comes from the heart. A kind gesture also has the power to rub off on you. A smile or a hug or a kiss from your partner or even a few compassionate words will calm you down when you feel like crying. Kindness is the biggest gift you can bestow upon someone.
How to turn any image into an SVG template
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
