Anyone remeber or work with Adobe Streamline?
It was a program that would take a BMP image and vectorize it into an EPS file. I know alot of people that had mixed results with this program, they either loved it or hated it.
I stumbled upon this fantastic web based app that vectorizes a BMP image with great precision and has great features. Vector Magic is a brainchild of a group of people at Stanford university and is currently a FREE app that anyone can use.
Not only does it give great very precise vector based imagery. The only down side is it dosen't recognize holes in shapes, it will create a white shape on top of a dark one. The best part about it is that It can also vectorize colored imagery and seperate the colors into individual objects.
I drew an image by hand, photocopied it, wrinkled and distressed it, scaned it, and then played with contrast in photoshop. I then uploaded it to Vector Magic and 15 minutes later I had a great piece of vector art.
If you check out the website it can even vectorize COLOR PHOTOS with great results
ABSOLUTLY AMAZING and FREE!
I am curious to find what other people in this community can do with it.
