How It Works

Using Vector Magic is super-simple and it's free to try it out:

  1. Upload your image. Vector Magic automatically figures out what settings to use and traces the image right away.
  2. Download the result! You can review the result in detail online before downloading it, and there are several tweaking options for improving it as well.

Upload your own image below, watch the video to the right to see it all in action or read a more in-depth description.

What is Tracing? Vectorization? Why Use Vector Images?

Tracing (aka vectorization) is the process of converting a bitmap image (e.g. JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TIFF, PSD) to a vector image (e.g. EPS, SVG, PDF, AI, DXF, EMF). Vector images are often used when printing, screen printing, doing embroidery and in many other graphic design applications.

What are the benefits of using Vector Magic?

Vector Magic saves you time and frustration, while giving you better results than the alternatives.

  • No more tedious hand-tracing. Hand tracing can take hours, and it can be costly to hire a professional to recreate the image. Why not let Vector Magic do the work, saving you time and money?
  • Better accuracy. If you compare results from other tools side-by-side with those from Vector Magic, you will notice that Vector Magic produces vectors that more closely resemble the input image. Finer details in the shapes are recovered, and the curves are more faithful to the bitmap original.
  • Less cleanup required. Vector Magic's results are cleaner, while still extracting more detail from the bitmap original. Normally you'd have to spend a lot of time cleaning up the output from an auto-tracer - with Vector Magic you can oftentimes use the result right away, and if it requires cleanup then it's usually much less than what's required for the results from the competing tools.
  • Easier user interface with less trial-and-error. If you've used other tracing tools, you have probably noticed that they have tons of confusing options and settings, and require you to more or less randomly try different combinations of these in the frustrating search for a passable result.

    With Vector Magic on the other hand, the conversion options are all automatically selected for you. There's even an "Improve Result" feature to help you tweak the result if you'd like.

You can upload, vectorize, and preview images without any commitment.

However, to download you need to either subscribe to Vector Magic Unlimited (giving you unlimited downloads) or exchange 1 token for the vector results for which you wish to enable downloading. Alternatively, you can buy the Desktop Edition and use the software offline.

When signing up you get 2 free tokens.

Enabling downloading for an image allows you to download the vectorized result in all provided output formats. You are free to re-vectorize the image until you are satisfied. Your image and associated result will be available for at least 14 days from the time you enable downloading, provided you do not delete them before that.
