Silhouette Images from Color Pictures for Vinyl Cutting

Project Videos, Vinyl Cutter Projects

Hi Everyone! I’ve been using color images to create black and white silhouette images that I can convert to a vector and cut out on vinyl. It is pretty easy to do, so I made a video highlighting how I do this. This video is really highlighting how I use Photoshop and Illustrator, but you will probably want to take it to the real world and “print it” on a vinyl cutter.
Software Used
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Silhouette Studio (for cutting)


I use a Silhouette Cameo 3, but you can easily do these same steps on a Cricut.

Cool! I’m now testing this new comment system to see how well it works.
