Step 1: Pick a picture you want to vectorcize! Play with it in photoshop if you want. Remember, this image starts out as a raster.
Step 2: Open Adobe Illustrator and make a blank document the size of your choosing.
Step 3: Open File, select “Place,” and choose your raster image.
Step 4: Once placed, click the arrow to the right of live trace. You have many different options for how you want to vectorcize your image!
Step 5: Once you are content with your selection, click expand to alter the image. Et voila! C’est complete! (In this example, I used Color 6).
Cute, huh? 🙂
