In the early 2000s I used a raster art to vector art conversaion tool. I THOUGHT it was by Adobe, but I find no trace of it! It had a locomotive as its logo, and I think it was named "steam" or something similar. Required an activation key, wonderful little piece of software. Want to find it again because I back then could quickly convert simple line drawings to vector lines without having to use much system power (unlike, say, opening up Illustrator.)
Anyone recall this thing?
That sounds like Adobe Streamline. I believe it was discontinued and built into Illustrator around the CS2 era.
