I have a colour jpeg that I want to use Illustrator to produce an outline trace of. I want every line traced - live trace seems only to pick up on the 'outside' edges that run against the transparent background.
So how do I get all edges traced - an edge being the divide between two different colours in the jpg image?
You might try reading up on Live Trace in the help files. Read about all the options, then play with them with Preview on to see that you can trace much more than outer edges.
But this looks like a job for the pen and shape tools to me.
I would say the pen tool and the shape tool ad the font is Times.
