  • how to outline a bitmap image

    so i have a bitmap image that i need to put an outline around. i need the outline so that i can cut the shape out using my laser engraving and cutting machine. in order to cut the line weight has to be set to hairline hence the need for the outline around the shape. is this possible? and how?

      You need a "closed shape" vector outline. How good are you with a pen tool in Illustrator? And does your laser software accept illustrator files?
      There are other ways to create a vector outline, but without seeing the art, it's impossible to tell you which would work best with the least amount of hassle.
