Quick Tip:
How Vector Magic Can Sharpen Your Image

Ever had a client ask you to recreate their logo from an image so small and pixilated that it looks like it is made of Legos?

VectorMagic is a website that takes your raster images and turns them into smooth vector drawings. Unlike raster images, vector drawings are made of geometric shapes instead of pixels, so you can infinitely resize them with no fuzziness or blockiness!

VectorMagic was created by the University of Stanford, and it’s FREE.

There are other programs on the market that will do this. But most are part of expensive programs such as Adobe Illustrator. VectorMagic is Web-based and will run on most computers. To check it out, go to vectormagic.stanford.edu.
