Golden Retrievers are so much Fun
Golden Retrievers are adorable pets. They are gentle giants perfect with families that have small kids. Golden Retrievers are also smart that one can easily teach them. Even as a young puppy, one can immediately teach these dogs simple tricks. Golden Retrievers have also common and familiar physical characteristics that anyone who sees them can immediately identify their breed. Their luscious golden-brown coats shine under daylight and could make anyone look at them.
Unlike other big dog breeds, Golden Retrievers have a friendly face. For example, a German Shepherd and a Dobberman have sharp long faces. This made them quite intimidating and strong. While a Golden Retriever has a rounded face and doe looking eyes. This made an impression that they are soft and approachable. No wonder they are such a huge hit to the kids (and adults)!
Golden Retrievers are considered one of the best pets. However, it does not mean that there are no consequences to owning one. Golden Retrievers are sporting dogs. It means they are very energetic and requires a lot of energy. If you are staying at an apartment, Golden Retriever can be a handful. But, if you stay near a park or you have a home with a wide yard, then your Golden Retriever would love you. Anyone who would love to go out or exercise will adore having a Golden Retriever as a companion.
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:
