How To Enlarge Images Without Loosing Quality or Pixelated.If any one of you still remember the said article? ~ sir Raymond.cc blog archives
Vector Magic's flagship service is the online auto tracer available on this website. It converts bitmap (aka raster) images into vector images through an easy-to-use web interface - just upload your image and it will guide you through the process.
The difference between bitmap/raster images and vector images is that the former are described by pixels - squares of color - while the latter are described by shapes - a mathematical description of the image that can be scaled without becoming blurry or "pixelated" (that blocky look that bitmap/raster images so often get when scaled up).
Vector images are used in most aspects of graphic design and are the preferred format for printing, both on paper and on clothes. The reason for this is that while a bitmap/raster image can look great on the screen, which usually has a resolution of about 72 pixels/dots per inch (DPI), it will normally have to be scaled by a factor of 8 or more when printed since modern printers routinely produce resolutions of 600 pixels/dots per inch. Vector images can handle this type of scaling without any problems while bitmap/raster images struggle with it.
The Desktop Edition puts the power of Vector Magic - with all of its benefits - right on your desktop. Vectorize as much as you want, without the need to upload or download any images, and with a host of extra features.
The conversion process as such is called tracing or vectorization and is something that has historically been done mostly by hand. An automated tool like the Vector Magic web service can make this otherwise tedious task quick and painless.
Just download and install the Desktop Edition. You can vectorize any image you'd like and try the program out before deciding if you want to buy or not.
The only limitation in the unregistered version is that the save feature is disabled, so while you can preview the results inside the program you cannot export them.
