Vector Conversion for Graphics

LineTracer – Vector Conversion
If you're a great freehand artist and want to get your drawings on your computer, scanning is an obvious solution. Scanning only gets you a gigantic image file of your drawing; it doesn't get you a way to work directly with your drawing. To manipulate your drawing you need to convert it to a vector format first. LineTracer offers a free solution for taking hand drawn sketches and converts them to EPS format vector images. You scan your drawing at 200-300dpi, then import that scanned image into LineTracer. The simple interface supports cleaning up the drawings you made before conversion, by defining all the tracing points of your lines. The EPS file is then compatible with applications like Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Illustrator, and Flash. [Windows 2k/XP/Vista $0.00]
