How to Make a Mountain SVG
Traveling is a desire a lot of us wanted to pursue. It is a dream for some and a life for others. Regardless of how we look at traveling, we can all agree that it helped most of us de-stress and enjoy life.
When choosing a travel spot, many of us would pick a tropical paradise. Maybe, some will consider the Urban jungles of Dubai and Tokyo. People who wanted to try a little bit challenging will choose the mountains. Recently, mountain hiking, trekking, and camping are gathering attention. It is a chance to be close to nature. But at the same time, it could be tiring and physically exhausting. So, people who wanted to try this kind of activity should prepare.
The mountains could be intimidating, but people continue to visit them? You may wonder why. Well, here’s a shortlist of mountain areas you may want to check.
Lake Placid, New York, is listed as one of the best mountain towns in the US. This ‘Miracle on Ice’ town is known for its scenic place. Lake Placid is a way to go if you are not yet capable of full hiking. Instead, they have walking trails you could try.
If you wanted to take it a step further, consider Telluride, Colorado. Do not let this small town deceive you! It held various music festivals and film fests! Tourists are drawn to this place for its peaceful area and luscious forests.

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:
