Raster to vector
Raster to vector means converting a raster file into the vector. The raster file is a bitmap file represents a rectangular shape pixel grid. It is generally used for making simple web graphic design such as icons, web buttons and charts.
Vector file is an advanced image file not like jpeg, png. It is not made of a pixel of grids. It contains multiple paths which have a starting and ending point. Vector file is hugely used for logo making, engineering drawing, business drawing, illustration, banner art, signs, printing and other purposes.
Adobe Illustrator is the main software to create vector and hugely used by raster to vector conversion service provider. Vector applications are drawing software. So, converting an image into vector art means creating a drawing of the image. Images can be changed to vector graphic either with hand drawing the photos using vector software or auto vector tracing (automated vector software).
Hand drawn vectorization is generally much time taking unless the photo is being converted to a simple illustration art. On the other hand, a raster to vector conversion will save your time and money.
You have to determine first what you want to do with the vector file. Different parties have certain requirements for their work processes. As an example, the work processes that vinyl cut sign makers and specialty printers use will need a vector graphic that includes less amount of objects and colors.
Your photo will then require being converted to a line art graphic or an illustration art. The vector file requires being designed by hand. Redesigning the original image as a vector art will provide you a vector file that is appropriate for all work processes that needs vector illustration.
If you use the vector art on a digital printing machine that can print a huge amount of colors/objects and you merely require a vector art for scaling causes, then your photo may be auto traced by an automated vector software. It is one of the simplest and cost-effective methods to convert an image to vector graphics. Hire a raster to vector company to do all the hard work.
A large size and good quality raw photograph may be required to achieve desired results. If you have enough good quality big images, then uses the auto trace method. If the vector art requires to be scaled up and you failed to do it then contact Vectorpond vector conversion designers.
Automated vector tracing programs hardly provide you good outcomes. On the other hand manually drawn photo may be required in many instances but the final vector illustration will be a drawing art. It will not be a real photo as like the original raw photo. Call a professional raster to vector company provide a manual graphic design.
About Mouse drawn vector design
Images can be regenerated in vector file format by design them manually using a vector application. This process is more time taking and will not appear exactly the same as the raw image. The manually drawn photo looks flat because no gradient colors, highlights or shadows is not used. This type of image is called color line art.
This vector file is good for all kinds of printing including vinyl signs, plotters, spot color printing, embroidery, engraving, and others. Photographs that include color gradients, a multitude of colors, shadows and highlights are similar to photos when it talks about vector conversion.
Generally, these kinds of photographs need to be redrawn manually in vector file format. A skilled raster to vector provider gives you unique mouse drawn vector design.
