I Want to Vectorize Line Art Formatted to Jpeg. How to Do This?
Step 1. Import your image to Super Vectorizer 2 for Mac
Directly drag your image to workplace or click Import an Image or click File menu, then click Import or press Command & I to open an image of JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, PDF, PSD, etc.
Step 2. Select a mode
You have three options to choose from: Color Mode 1, Color Mode 2, Line Mode. --Color Mode 1. The default mode and the reasonable parameters are preset for you to quickly see the optimal vectorized result. This mode supports tracing of color and grayscale and you may flexibly make some adjustment according to the result. --Color Mode 2. Compared with Mode 1, the imported image will undergo color quantization before vectorizing and the result tends to be neater and have less line around region boundaries. Accordingly, you are allowed to adjust the setting of region segmentation. --Line Mode. When using this mode, Super Vectorizer for Mac will trace the edge line in black and white. You may fine-tune the result by setting the threshold. Also, skeletonization is supported in line mode. Export the result.
Step 3.Click Export or click File menu, then click Export or press Command & E to save as Ai, SVG, DXF and PDF.
To vectorize line art, you may normally use Line Mode. Likewise, the reasonable parameters are preset for you. Let me explain some settings and parameters to you: Skeletonization--get the skeleton of a shape, which is a thin version of this shape that is equidistant to its boundaries. Threshold--ranging from 1-100, the bigger of threshold, the clearer (less lines) of the output. Smooth Lines--the result would be smoother with turning up the parameter. Reduce Noise--to reduce noise of noisy images.
What Formats I Have as Options When Exporting the Vector Results in Super Vectorizer?
Super Vectorizer 2 can export scalable vector graphics of popular formats including Ai, SVG, DXF and PDF.
My Software Reports to Me that the Resulting PDF Is Not a Vector File. How to Fix This Problem?
We output to PDF V 1.3, maybe your software is not compatible with this version. But Adobe Illustrator can successfully recognize it as a vector file. So we provide you a temporary solution: 1. Output to PDF; 2. Open this PDF file in AI and save as PDF. Then it is recognizable in your software.
