Free School Bus SVG Design For You To Make
After graduating with our bachelor’s degree, most of us plan to work immediately. We wanted to start ‘earning’ money and living life. Soon, we will face the reality that working an eight-hour shift or more is not that glamorous. If we ended up losing interest in our work, there are instances we find ourselves daydreaming. Others may even regret entering employment immediately, not being mentally prepared for it.
As you drive by the nearby school in your workplace, you see these noisy and crowded students. You started to remember the moments you had as a student. Interestingly, these students reminded you of your memories in school. Although the school might be difficult and stressful, we can agree that it gave us one of the precious moments of our lives. Yes, you have your fair share of bad moments with classmates, friends, and even teachers. However, with good companions and precious memories, these bad moments are overshadowed.
We also need to remember that going to school is never a ‘late decision.’ You probably know someone a little bit older than you that keeps saying that they wanted to enter school again. However, they back out last minute because they think they are too old. If you have any friends like this, make sure to encourage them. Education has no age limit. It is a right anyone is entitled to. We know, once they entered school, they will be creating incredible memories as much as we do.
For our SVG craft today, we will be focusing on making a school bus.
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:
