I have a .jpg that I am trying to turn into camera ready art - either an .eps or .pdf, and it needs to be a vector file, and I need to convert my text to outlines. The text is within the .jpg. When I go to Select/Select All, it doesn't select anything in the .jpg, so then when I go to Type/Create Outlines - Create Outlines is not available for selection. What am I doing wrong???
Illy is quite unable to process a raster image in such a way: to her, it is just a rectangle with inaccessible contents. If you use Live Trace, she can discern the pixels of different colours and create vector paths along transitions/changes in these colours, but that is probably of little use to you, the result being rather crude, mostly useful when a photolike appearance is desired.
