  • Can someone convert this PNG to a Vector (AI file)?


    I just have the 2 images below, that need converting to an AI file, which can very quickly & easily be done automatically, using the "retrace" function in Adobe Illustrator. Only reason I ask is I no longer have Illustrator myself.

    Please remember to preserve the transparent background!

    Thanks in advance, images are in the imgur album below;

      Live Trace.
      Blech. More time spent fixing its result than it would take to trace something by hand.

              MY KNOWLEDGE ON PNG.

              Png is a bitmap types. PNG is just what we use in SWF over GIF and web design to make more colorful images without GIF limitations. PNG is not an alternative for TIFF ( even if PNG has more colors ) or RAW types.

              However PCX is another format the Illustrator reads as object oriented, but that is going too far back.

              However thanks to the power of Streamline ( which has been integrated into every illustrator since CS1 ) you should be able to get a decent edging.

              THIS IS WHAT I DO.

              Otherwise you will need to be like me and do it by hand ( which is simple ). Pull it into Photoshop and then Illustrator to "Streamline" it and presto you have a vectored your bitmap file. Bare in mind illustrator might have issues in the conversion.

              You could cheat and manipulate the intended image if it has the contrast/Aperture in the right area. Then pull into illustrator but that is a lot more work then creating the actual image from scratch.

              OTHER RELATED

              A tactic somebody did to pull in a photographic object was to reduce each value of color down to a simplistic values and then smooth them out in illustrator ( which I have no idea of how that works. However each portion of the image is actually a different value but spitted.

                  Remember all the things that made it easy to find whatever it was you were looking for on a site? Don't forget about it when you make your designs. The designs come second. Content first.

                  These all seem quite generic looking to me, but a lot of people do want these generic looking logos. For me the top one is the best of the lot.
