The Vector Ink Chrome Extension
Vector Ink is a responsive web based Vector Design application that provides convenient design tools and cloud storage for all your designs.
Use the Vector Ink Chrome extension to import photos, generate color palettes, or convert photos to vectors and import them directly into a Vector Ink canvas for editing.
With the Vector Ink Chrome extension installed, a pen icon will show on every image you mouse over. Clicking the pen icon will present you with four options:
- Import SVG: this option will convert the image to an SVG and import the SVG directly into a chrome tab that has an active vectorink.io project or it will create a new tab if non existent.
- Import Photo: Imports the image into a Vector Ink project.
- Import Palette: This will generate a color palette from the photo and update the palette in your Vector Ink project.
- Resize and Crop: This will import the photo into Vector Ink, adjust the document size to the photos dimensions, and open the Export panel for cropping and resizing.
Creating art in vector graphic design software should be easy but in most cases it is not. A lot of times you are wrestling with a pen tool for hours in order to get the right design you want, or taking shortcuts to give the appearance of a perfect shape. Well those days are behind us now. Vector Ink offers a smart Path Builder Tool that will merge and build the shape you want the way you want with perfect precision and little design effort.
Bring your shapes to life with our color tools. Vector Ink offers linear and radial gradient options along with multiple color picker types and an advanced color palette editor so you can generate, manage, and save your own color palettes for later use.
