    Cleaning up after doing a live trace

    Kenford Community Member

      Hi all! I did a live trace and it did pretty well. The image I traced was fairly simple. But I ended up with a lot of extra pieces in what should be a solid color. I've tried Select > Object > Stray points, but that didn't work. I have large area that I want to be one solid piece. Within this area, there are lots of little "pieces" that are the same color... How do I merge them all into one piece? I tried "Unite" in the pathfinder, and that didn't work, either.


      In case I'm not being clear, basically, I want to do what the "smooth" function does in Photoshop... but in Illustrator.


      I'm using CS6 on a Mac. Thanks!
