Image Trace in Illustrator — a Tutorial and Guide
Image Trace replaces the Live Trace feature in previous versions of Illustrator. Both Image Trace and Live Trace convert images to vectors (editable line art) and feature presets for easily creating various effects. Beyond the presets in the new Image Trace, you will find that the sliders and check boxes are different from those in Live Trace, both in quantity and often in purpose. And Image Trace produces far better results, more quickly, using intuitive, easy controls. No more struggling with complex options.
