I have a photograph and I want an outline of the people in it, ideally with vectors. How can I do this?
If I use Object/ Live Trace/ Tracing Options, I can set the live trace to outline, but I guess their isnt enough contrast in the photo so the live trace pics up the wrong things. Can I play with these settings? Am I on the right track with live trace?
You don't get a whole plethora of options under "Tracing Options"?
I get a ton, primarily the first two are best to play with.
Why do you want a photograph vectorized, is another question, you said for an outline, is this for a mask? You may want to just use the pen tool to make a crude outline (semi crude at least) and then use the smooth tool, to smooth out the jaggedness. Play with your smooth tool options to help.
Ended up going with the pen tool. Thanks
