How to Vectorize An Image in CorelDRAW
Almost all the pictures that you’ll discover on the web, for example, JPGs, GIFs, PNGs, are in raster format. This implies the pictures are included a set number of pixels, and this pixelation turns out to be progressively clear as the size of the picture increments.
Vector pictures, then again, alter with the size of the picture. As such, a vector picture will appear to be identical at any size. So for instance, if you have a logo for which you need various sizes, you’ll need to have a duplicate in vector design.
In this tutorial, we’ll import a raster logo into CorelDRAW and convert it to a vector format.
1. Import the Raster Image
From (File > New) under Name: type Convert to Vector. Use the preset destination Default RGB.
Select File > Import and peruse to your raster picture, which in this example is a sports team logo. Snap and drag to put the picture inside the page. As should be obvious, the edges of the bulldog are somewhat rugged – this is the pixelation impact seen when a raster picture is amplified.
2. Track Outlines
With the imported picture actually chose, from the primary menu select Bitmaps > Outline Trace. There are a few choices in the submenu, for example, Line art or Clip art; every choice has diverse tracing settings. The choice we’ll use in this model is Logo.
This enacts PowerTRACE, which does a really incredible activity at a one-venture vector transformation. The see window shows a “preceding” see on the left and “after” in the middle. You can utilize the sliders on the option to change the degree of detail, smoothing, and corner adjusting. In this model, a significant level of detail was expected to get the entirety of the little red letters at the top. You can likewise have PowerTRACE eliminate the foundation, erase the first picture, combine adjoining objects, and so on.
The level of detail can be seen by zooming in intently. You can zoom or skillet on either side of the see and the opposite side will change in accordance with coordinate.
The shading results can be seen in the Colors tab. In this model, four hues were recognized. Tapping on shading from the rundown features all spots on the picture where that shading is used. You can alter hues, change the shading mode, consolidate comparable hues, and so forth.
3. Compare and Check
However long the first raster picture wasn’t erased, you can contrast with ensure the vector variant incorporates everything. The vector rendition is put on the first, so get it out of the way. A whole vector picture is a single group.
If there are any fixes to be made, for example, including openings in letters or other little subtleties, you can ungroup (Ctrl + U) the vector picture, roll out the improvements and pull together (Ctrl + G).
Or then again, if a lot of detail was forgotten about, you can perform PowerTRACE once more, utilizing various settings or utilizing one of the diverse following alternatives.
4. Save in Vector Format
Since you have your picture as a vector, the first raster picture can be erased. You can use File > Save As to spare the logo as a CDR file, or pick another vector format, for example, AI, EPS, PDF, or SVG. No matter how the picture is measured, it will hold similar bend properties.
