importing jpeg, changing color and saving as vector file

Asked by brian holland on 2017-10-21

I have one jpeg and one png file. Both are images I want to use for a logo design. I need to convert them from their current color (white) to sunset orange and save them as vector files so I can forward them to a separate vendor who is designing my logo.

The process you're looking for is called 'Tracing' or 'Vectorization'.

For this, import your raster graphics into Inkscape, then either:

- Trace manually, by using the B├ęzier tool and / or shape and text tools, and redrawing the picture

- Trace automatically by using the autotracer, see:
Help -> Tutorials -> Tracing
or
http://write.flossmanuals.net/start-with-inkscape/_draft/tracing-an-image/

Youtube and many other websites also have inofficial tutorials for this, if you prefer a different format.

Can you help with this problem?
