    Cool Re: Vector Tracing

    Silhouette plugin for Illustrator (now defunct) used to be the best.

    But with Illustrators (CS6) autotrace features - it's really quite adequate now, especially with users, able to change settings.

    Vector Magic 1.17, if you don't have access to Illustrator CS6

    If you still have access to a PowerMac and OS9 (Classic) you will find Adobe Streamline was the best in its' day as a Vector Tracing Program.

    Cheers.

    Vector Tracing

    Have found Illustrator CS5 and CS6 to be a great tracing app. Lots of presets ready to go or you can customise the settings to get it how you want it.
    Can preview the trace before it happens aswell.

    CorelDraw! X6 version is quick and easy with good results. Adjustments are needed for manual tweaking in detail option dialog windows.

    Vector Magic

    If need a quick results Vector Magic does it for you; usually I start with it and then move the eps file to Illustrator to get the final look.
    Tnx.

    Vector Magic is an alternative.

    I also use vector magic. He has several presets. You only need to enter the type of image (whether it's photo, design ...) and the program does the rest. If you do not like the result, you can set the settings manually. And save for of the several extensions available.

    ps: how much clearer is the matrix, the better the outcome, of course.

    Seriously: Illustrator CS6 has a completely new trace engine and works REALLY well!

    Vector Magic

    I have used Vector magic For everything then load in to illustrator to clean up the job if needed but that is rare with this software unless the source image was low res to begin with.

    I was disappointed by the tracing results with Illustrator CS6. Inkscape on the other hand did a surprisingly good job.
