    Hello there, there is something that I cant figure it out, atleast not the entire process. How do you get this result:

    I figured it out it has to be something with vectorizing the image and then simpplifying it but I dont know the entire process. Ofcourse extracting the object is the main thing but what about other enhacments, it seems he got a very basic object out of the original. How, any tips, steps ?

    Thank you so much

    Itís very easy to do.

    There are several different ways of tracing this. Iíll give you a concise overview then you can research the different methods.

    A real easy way would be to use the ďLive TraceĒ option in Illustrator but this will give you a very complicated vector image with about 17,000 anchor points.

    You could trace it in Photoshop using the pen tool and create multiple paths. Using the paths to create selection outlines and then filling them with the appropriate colour.

    The best way to achieve whatís in the png file would be to copy the tiny image to Illustrator and then hand trace it in here using the pen tool. Itís really simple. The only thing that would hold you back is your knowledge with Illustrator, I donít know how advanced you are. If you want some really good DVD tutorials check out Lynda.com. Theyíre quite expensive but well worth the money. Pm me and Iíll tell you how to get them for free.
