Vectorize your images

VectorMagic, an online tool from some smart people at Stanford, will trace your raster image (an image made of pixels, like your digital photos are) and convert it to a vector image (an image made of smooth shapes and curves with hard edges that is completely scalable.) Here's my test. Via Photojojo.

That's awesome for those who aren't blessed with Illustrator. I'm going to share that tip. Thanks!

I love online tools. Good stuff. thanks for the link to Photojojo. All of these things are new to me so I'm like a kid in a candy store filled with excitement.

Maybe it's because I don't use it correctly, but I've never been able to get Illustrator's autotrace to work that well. This is *very* cool! Thanks for the tip.

Right. Just like Al Gore invented the internet.

thanks for sharing this great resource! i like drawing in photoshop better than illustrator, and this looks like a neat and simple way to get the nice quality that i'm looking for. i supposed i could just learn how to draw in illustrator, but you know what they say about teaching an old dog new tricks...

interesting. it actually looks better than most live traces.

Jesse said...

Thanks! This looks really useful!

Ah, this will come in very handy for this year's holiday cards, which I drew by hand (and was about to re-draw in Illustrator)!

This is great! My friends are constantly sending me things to convert over to vectors... now I can just send them here!!

Thanks for the tip!
