Adobe Illustrator has image trace. There are several free or paid tools online as well that will convert JPGs to vector. I think for the most part you will find them underwhelming. Compared to a skilled human illustrator who is tracing the same photo, the software version would be quite subpar. That's my experience anyway, feel free to give it a go yourself and see.

I've been asking the same question for well over seven years. The answer is, and has been, pretty much the same. NO and even with autotrace, still complicated and not very good results.

I don't consider manual illustration a good answer because you have to do everything, which is tedious and complex. But that's about the only way to get a usable result.

One more thing


The software alternatives, every one I've tried or seen, does not make a true scalable vector, it makes an EPS file, but it isn't a true vector. Imagine when a buyer downloads one of those and finds, the paid for a file type conversion, not a true scalable vector?

But before I say absolutely no, or never, it depends on what you are trying to convert, and what you want the results to be? Some simple designs you could autotrace with free software, and drop into Illustrator and yes, get a true EPS 10 Vector, for example.

Complicated patterns, colors, intricate designs and anything with shading gets more difficult.

If there's any software, please anyone, tell me about it. I can't find one that works.

And if anyone has the ability to convert JPGs to true vectors, for a reasonable fee, PM me, I'll pay you.

Darn I was hoping to get a flock of replies saying how wrong I was.  ;)

Seems that converting images to vectors isn't easy?
