I've been making outline designs for surboards, but for some reason sometimes they end up having lines with too much thickness. The one above has the desired thickness (near 4 mm) and the one on the bottom is too thick. I've been playing around with different settings but nothing seems to change.

What's the best way to fix it? surf board outlines

    Are they merely strokes? Then the Stroke Weight in the Stroke Panel will change them.... but that blue X across them makes me think they may be placed raster images in which case, there's no "easy" fix" to change the weights.

  • These images are basically .svg I made and transformed into .png on inkscape. Nov 12 at 21:56
  • If you can edit the svg images and use a thinner, and consistent stroke weight before converting them to PNG, that's be the easiest method... but you'll need to avoid scaling the PNGs in Illustrator. So you want all your SVG images at the same proportion. -- Or just open/use the SVGs in Illustrator and fix the stroke weight after any scaling.

  • PNG is a raster format. You can't edit these in Illustrator. Save as Plain SVG from Inkscape, and open that in illustrator if you want to edit the vector strokes,
