Simple, Illustrator CS3 Question ? Answered
Can anyone help me please with this simple Illustrator CS3 question.
I am OK with Photoshop but am just trying Illustrator which seems a bit tricky by comparison.
I want to take a black and white jpg image and convert it to a vector image.
From what I have gathered from numerous tutorials, I have to -
Copy my image from PS and paste it into Illustrator: Then select the image.
At this point the tutorials say that a LIvetrace button should appear along the top; it doesn't, but I can access Livetrace by going to
object- Livetrace- options ( this only works when the object is not selected; if its selected everything is greyed out)
Anyhoo, when I do get the dialogue box, the blue button that should say "trace" says "set default".
I did manage to get this to work with one image but I don't know what was different.
I realise how long winded that explanation was; if you have got this far do you have any advice ?
