The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Yes I am but I still have to do some editing on the flag before I can. I didn't realize it till I pictured it in my mind all cat in vinyl that would not look so good where the hem for the grommets go. Thanks you for the kind words I am proud of it, But I want it perfect this is for my sister in law,The young man is my nephew and he is in the navy, he is on a submarine in the picture up on deck. I never seen him look so grown up.

That looks great Darcy.  The only suggestion I have is to fill in on the side of the flag where it is broken up.   Make that one little side piece solid.  That way when you use it and cut it in vinyl it won't be a bunch of little pieces that could get lost.  And if you didn't want it solid just get some of the littliest pieces gone.  They can be a real pain when doing vinyl.  But you caught the detail really great.  Really awesome job.

Wow, looks great.
Which tracing method did you use? As I am nosy and would like to try to get a similar result with some of my photos.

I agree with Suzan and would eliminate some of the small pieces along the side of the flag to make it easier when cutting. Some vinyls are hard to keep small pieces together as they slide on the backing paper when removing the waste vinyl. I look forward to seeing the cut out project.

Butterfly,

I think this looks awesome.  I want to try my hand at it.  So many ideas.... so little time.

I did many auto traces on it playing with the brightness cut off threshold until I got the one I wanted then I just got busy on deleting the nodes one at a time till I wound up with what you see.

I think alot of it has to do with the lighting in the photo because I have tried this before without much luck,But it just WIZZ BANG THUNK this time.
