There are several ways to vectorize an image. In this article we try to explain as well as possible how you can do this.
Vectorise an image in Illustrator
Open the logo in Adobe Illustrator. Sign the logo manually. This means that you cover every shape in the logo and fill it with a colour. Watch the animation below for a simple explanation.
- The result is excellent (we also use Illustrator).
- You can customize the logo.
- You can save the logo in the three most common vector file formats: AI, EPS and PDF.
- It takes (a lot of) time to draw a logo.
- You first have to learn to work with Illustrator before you can trace a logo.
- Adobe Illustrator costs money.

Vectorise in Photoshop
It is not possible to vectorize a file properly in Photoshop. For this you really need Adobe Illustrator. This is because Photoshop is a pixel based program. Illustrator is a vector based program.

Online you can find websites that can vectorize your image.
- Not always a good result. As you can see from the logo above, the logo is not neatly vectorized.
