Today I read about tracing and cropping an image in Microsoft Expression Design 4. So I want to share this with you all in the form of an article hoping that you will like it:

  • Open a new document in Microsoft Expression Design 4.

  • Select a Rectangle from the tools and draw it with height and width fit to your screen. Fill the Rectangle with black color.

    And choose the image that you want on your design Screen.

  • Now Crop the Image:

    Select the image and under the Object menu is a pop out menu called "Image". Here you will get "Create Image Object" option:

  • Drag a rectangle around the area you wish to Crop; a pop-up "Rasterise Area" appears showing dpi =96 (which is default) if you want to change than you can, and click OK:

  • You will see a rectangle on the image outlining the new Image. Save the new image:

  • If you want to see your cropped image on your artboard then drag it to another part of the artboard you will see two images :-- one original and one cropped:

For Tracing the Image
  • Open another Document in "Microsoft Expression Design 4" and repeat the same procedure up to Importing the Image.

    Figure 1.
     
  • Select the Image and under the Object menu click "Image". Here you will get "Auto Trace Image" option, after clicking on this you get a pop-up box "Auto Trace Image" click OK:

    Now your Image Should be like this:

    Figure 4.
     
  • Drag the image downwards and wait for response.
     
  • And after few seconds you will get your Traced Image. To see it clearly click somewhere else on the window:
