Help with a trace

Post by dsander70 » Tue Oct 29, 2019 11:34 pm

I was wanting to know if someone can help me with a trace of this emblem. I traced it in coreldraw but it always turns out low quality. Is there a better Software to use for this type of work. Thanks in advance for any help and or advice.

If you are looking for an auto-trace, you can also try Vector Magic. I've heard graphic artist guys prefer that over Coreldraw for auto tracing.

Very often auto tracing does not give what is wanted so you have to resort to manual tracing. There are plenty Youtube videos on manual tracing and manipulating lines, curves and nodes.

If you want someone to do the manual tracing for you, see the forum rules for this section. There are several members listed there that do conversions for a price.
