Converting Your JPG Files to Vector

Scan2CAD Featured Image

JPG to Vector

Converting JPG to vector can be as complicated or as simple as you want with the right software. There are two general methods to accomplish the task.

Manual Conversion

Manual conversion is a tedious process. It requires tracing the JPG image to create a vector. One can actually do laser precision work here. For instance, during the tracing, you could remove the imperfections from a portrait, such as moles or dark spots. Manual conversion requires an imaging editor, crafty use of color sampling, using pen tools to produce shapes, a steady hand, time and a great amount of patience.

Automated Conversion

Automated processes require an application that performs the entire procedure. It cannot be as accurate as the manual process … yet. The human eye still has a higher rate of recognition than any automated solution. Otherwise, there is no better way to save time than through a JPG to vector converter. Apps like Scan2CAD are perfect for converting from JPG to DWG or DXF. It handles one at a time or multiple images, uses fine tuned auto tools to find shapes and line types for vectorization. It has many other features that make it extremely user friendly and cost effective. Scan2CAD has a free 14 day trial period for experimenting with JPG to vector conversion.

Vectorization

Vectorization is a vital component in architecture, modelling, contour mapping and CNC. When you are taking JPG to vector, you want a solution that’s intelligent, intuitive and clean that allows easy conversion and editing. When using automated options, get one that has an array of editing tools that offer as much power as you want or need, but still has the capacity to process hundreds, and even thousands, of JPGs automatically when you don’t have the time.

DXF

DXF is an imaging format that’s fast becoming an industry standard and the best choice for converting your JPGs into a new format. It’s a sophisticated and universal CAD data file format. It was engineered by Autodesk for the exchanges between AutoCAD and other apps. This is the best solution when you are working on projects where sharing drawings is required. The format ensures all team members can proceed without needing any particular application.
