    Hello, I need someone who can spare some of their time to convert a jpeg to a vector file. I don't have the necessary programs to do this, let alone know how to do it!

    Also, if anyone with knowledge in Illustrator could draft up a nice clean blueprint for me from a 2d sketch of mine, I'd be very grateful.

    If you can help me, PM me and I'll get into the details with you. Thanks, Replicators!!

    That looks pretty straight-forward.

    What about the jpeg?

    It's a three color flag design from Dr. Doom comics. I don't have it with me now, I'm on my phone. It's another 2D design.

    No, I know. I need help with two separate images. Sorry for the confusion. The sketch posted above I just want as a simple line drawing from illustrator, to use as a blueprint. The linked image was an example of the image I need converted into a vector file. Let me try to post the exact image.

    What are you going to do with them?

    It makes a difference in the final drawing.

    Illustrator won't me import this or any re-saved version of it.

    Also the lines on the left are not spaced the same as the one on the right.

    Whereas top to bottom they match up.

    Do you want them uneven like that?

    I'm really sorry for the confusion. Here's the final image I need as a vector file. [​IMG]


    The sketch, like I said, I'm going to make out of MDF and styrene, so I'd like to use it as a blueprint, once it's been cleaned up and symetrical and perfect.

    The above image I'm going to get printed as a full size flag, and the company who is doing it wants the final image as a vector file.

    Thank you everyone, so much!

    Squirl, thank you so much. I didn't even know something like that website existed. That should do the trick for the flag. I just now need to figure out how to get that sketch turned into a cleaned up blueprint of sorts.

    Just needs to be traced in Illustrator. About 10-20mins of work there. If I had 20mins to spare I'd do it for you but someone should be able to do that no problem. :)

    It's what we do. :)

    O_B, I'm pretty sure you can attach an adobe illustrator or photoshop file. Just go in advanced and clck on the paperclip. Positive it's a supported file type.
