    Both of these sound good. I might go with Kcama's idea first. Looks like it is a program that is installed to your computer. Be sure it is supports your operating system, meaning Windows, Linux, or Mac. zamzar sounds like something that you send info to and they send back a converted file.

    I use a silhouette cameo and often make stencils from my own photographs (jpg files). is what I use. It'll convert any file type to just about any other file type. in my case, I use jpg to png. Works perfectly and I can set the detail level, too. (And online and free)

      Feel free to write me and I'll tell you about my experience with silhouette. (It's really a rather incredibly complicated program to master, but man, what it can do....)

    Not sure if you should be using a vector graphic image instead of a .pdf file, but you can youtube your question or ask the MANY users who have uploaded videos about their R-Series II machines. I know I use a vector graphic when cutting out images on my craft cutter. I have used many different software applications that are the market including the one specifically designed for my machine, the great thing about most technology is that you have an option to use different software applications. My advice... Go to YouTube and watch videos and email people.

    I don't know what a vinyl cutter is but I bought an engraver about a year back and have only used it on some recycled DVDs, reading this though has given me an idea to just get up the image the correct size on the screen and trace around it probably on clear thin but rigid plastic film.

    It'll change over any record type to pretty much some other document type. for my situation, I use jpg to png. Works flawlessly and I can set the detail level,
