How to Trace Images in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition I want to show you a great feature of the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition—the trace function. You can save an image to your computer, import it, trace it, and cut it with your CAMEO or Portrait. Here are the steps: source
1) Save an image to your computer (very important, remember WHERE you save it)
2) Import the image to the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software program 3) Create a new project
4) Click to add your image
Your new image will be filed under “My Own Designs”. 5) Click it to add to your new project.
Your image will now be in your new project.
6) Click the little blue icon (butterfly?) that is the Trace Function
7) Click Select Trace Area
8) With your mouse, click and draw/highlight the area of your image. A yellow outline will appear. Click TRACE the blue box will disappear.
The magic is about to happen. 9) Click your original image and drag it to one side, and voila! your new shape/image is ready to cut!
10) Click Save to Library, then name your image, and add keywords if you would like.
Now both images are saved to your library for you to use again and again. Isn’t that fun? The possibilities are endless! A great project would be your child’s silhouette (profile) cut out of paper or vinyl—would make a great gift for grandparents.
If you already have a Silhouette, and you don’t have the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, this is the perfect time to get it at 40% off by using the code REPURPOSED.

I added the text I Love You to my new image, then I used a hem guide and some painter’s tape to apply my new image onto a white ceramic tile.
Adding Silhouette vinyl to ceramic tile is so quick and easy and makes a great gift, especially when you can trace your own images in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition.
Many of you have asked what the difference is between the software programs. This little snippet shows the difference between the Basic Studio and the Designer Studio Software.
