Upload

Upload an image and we automatically figure out what settings to use and trace the image for you.

Review

You can review the result, tweak the settings and even edit the result, all within the same tool.

Download

The result is delivered in SVG, EPS, and PDF formats. The desktop edition also produces AI and DXF.

Fully automatic

Vector Magic analyzes your image and automatically detects appropriate settings for it. This makes getting started a real breeze: just upload your image and presto, a result to review!

Naturally you can revise the auto-detected settings. Vector Magic offers you meaningful settings that are comprehensible to humans, not just to a machine, and they're easy to edit.

Sub-pixel precision

Vector Magic carefully carves out every ounce of information available in your image, slicing each edge pixel at precisely the right spot to re-create the intention of your original.

This allows us to tease out small details that are lost by other tools, pushing the envelope of how small you can go before a nuance of your input is lost.

The right number of nodes

If you've used other auto-tracing tools before, you may have noticed just what an awful number of nodes they use to create your result, and just how weirdly they place them.

Vector Magic is a breath of fresh air, intelligently selecting the right number of nodes to use, and placing them at excellent locations.

This makes working with the results much easier and reduces file sizes.

Edit the result

Not only does Vector Magic offer you easy to use settings, we also let you edit the result, both online and in the desktop app.

You can eliminate unwanted shapes, connect shapes that have been separated, fix broken lines, and separate shapes that should not be touching, all in the form of an easy-to-use pixel-style editor.

This remarkable feature can be a real life-saver when there are a few small blemishes in your result.

Tracing

Embedding

Tracing not Embedding

Vector Magic always traces your bitmap, carefully teasing out the underlying shapes in it, and provides you with a real vector image with all of its benefits.

In contrast, there are numerous services available online that claim to convert bitmaps to vectors, but that in reality just embed the pixels without actually tracing them into vector shapes.

This leaves you with a file that will still be blurry when scaled, and will not be usable for cutting, sewing, laser engraving, or other purposes that require a real vector.

Save yourself the frustration and go with Vector Magic for real vector tracing!

I continue to marvel at just how good this software is ... everything from the clear and simple user interface to the startling results are a joy to find.

Benefits

Easy

Vector Magic turns the difficult and tedious task of tracing a bitmap by hand into an effortless click-click-done experience. Get back in control of your images!

Excellent

If you compare results from other tools, you will notice that Vector Magic produces vectors that are more faithful to the bitmap original. This makes them often immediately usable, and if cleanup is required there's much less of it.

Economical

With the high cost of outsourcing and the time hand-tracing takes, Vector Magic pays for itself with even a minimum of use. And since usage is unlimited, it always makes sense to try it on any image you need vectorized.

Expedient

Why wait when you don't have to? Vector Magic returns results right away so that you can get on with your day and what really matters.

Vector images consist of shapes like circles, rectangles, lines and curves, while bitmap images consist of a grid of pixels.

The shapes in vector images allow computers to do things that cannot be done with bitmap images, like scale them to any size without loss of quality and using them to e.g. cut, sew, paint, and laser engrave.

Vectorizing Photos

Photos can be vectorized to great artistic effect, and this tutorial shows you some examples. You can get a stylized piece of art that can be used e.g. as a background or component in a larger composition. You can also extract individual shapes from specific real-world objects, which can be a great addition to your asset repository.

Officially supported file formats are: JPEG, PNG, BMP, and GIF images using the sRGB color space. CMYK input gets converted to sRGB.

The maximum allowed image size is 1 megapixel, regardless of aspect ratio. Images larger than the size limit will be shrunk to that size. Note that this is pixels, not bytes, and there is currently no image byte size limitation.

Officially supported browsers are the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge running on modern desktops and laptops, though other modern browsers may also work.
