Newbe question;

I have seen some post recommending to save an image file as a template, create a copy and trace with the Pen tool. However, this post was a few years ago.

 

Has Image Trace replaced this method?

 

In an attemt to convert some line drawings (Wiring Diagrams) to vector files the results have been pretty bad. I have tried using the tools in Image Trace to clean up. However just not getting it done.

 

Can the majority of JPG images be converted using Image Trace?

 

Thanks

The earlier post is still the best method to get a good copy.

Thanks, since I have several this is going to be a laborious process. At least I know the road ahead.

You will improve as time goes on. The Pen Tool is the basis for working in AI.

Thanks, tried to stay away from it in PS for years as it was difficult getting use to it. I guess by the time I gain proficiency AI will have replaced it 🙂

Doesn't  look like it. And doesn't look like that is even within the scope of "artificial intelligence" developers.

 

Pen tool in Photoshop is quite limited compared to Illustrator.

IMO - I really did not see a need for the Pen tool in PS. Sensi (AI) selection tools really make it easy to select. I see a real a need for the Pen Tool in AI.

Sensi is a great feature. Depending on the image, the Pen tool is sometimes still the most accurate method.
