Straightening objects after a bitmap trace

Sep 5, 2012 1:39 AM

Hi,

 

I've converted a bitmap which contains a pixelated banner in to a vector image.  Whilst the output is almost there, some of the edges of the "pixels" are not at right angles and therefore the "pixel" is not a regular rectangle.  I have converted all the anchors to corners, however this made some of the "pixels" in to trapezium shapes instead of right angled rectangles.  There are too many pixels to modify to do this manually.  Is there a way to "Select All" -> "Make all corners 90 degrees" type functionality in Illustrator CS6 ?

 

Cheers!

    p,

     

    From the description it would seem obvious to redraw (that part of) the (underlying locked) image with the Pen Tool, just clicking each relevant position; presuming horizontal and vertical lines, Smart Guides are your friends, clearly showing the directions.
