Trace Edges

Images node

The Trace Edges node draws the edges found in an image while retaining its color. This tool offers a unique artistic flair to images, distinct from traditional edge-detection techniques. It's ideal for creating stylized versions of photographs, artistic renderings, or when a unique edge-focused effect is desired. Trace Edges is also an input into ControlNet.

Importance: Trace Edges adds a creative touch to images, offering a different perspective compared to standard edge detection. This node is valuable for artists, designers, and anyone looking to transform images into visually striking artworks.

Use Cases:

  • Artists creating artistic renditions of photographs with a focus on color and form

  • Graphic designers using traced edges for a unique style in visual content

  • Photographers experimenting with edge effects to enhance the artistic appeal of their photos
