Hi, new to illustrator here. I'd like to vectorize part of an image because it is very 'pixeleted'. As you can see in the attatched image the letters looks pixeleted. How can I vectorize them? I tried using 'image trace' and 16 bit color but it changes the colours of the lines on the left hand side of the image.
I would just retype them in a typeface like Arial.
Hi Ton, thanks for the reply. This is what I did eventually but imagine a situation where you have 20-30 graphs with the same problem (pixeleted text). That's why I asked if there is a faster way to vectorize a portion of an image.
That is too low a resolution to vectorize.
I don't know where the graphs come from, is it possible to get a vector version or a higher resolution file?
This graph came from R (statistical software for programming). By default the graphs are exported with 70ppi in PNG format. I think I need to find a way to export them with higher resolution from R and then add text or whatever in illustrator.
if you are on MAC Monetry OS, you can use a new feature to copy text from images . this is also available on the latest IOS if you are an iphone user,
Empirical area variogram
Fitted area variogram
Deconvoluted point variogram
Mohammad really nice feature but I am not a Mac user, I have a Windows PC. Is this feature available only to Mac users?
Currently, it is only available on the latest Mac OS, but it is pretty limited and does not work with placed images in Illustrator. As far as I can see it does not even work with placed images in native Mac applications like Pages. Yes, it does work with the Preview application and probably somewhere else.
That won't help you, of course. I'd recommend to follow Ton's advice.
Do not Vectorize it. Image trace is not so great with Type.
in Photoshop on the file.
and see the result.,
Another is to do the same in Adobe Capture. (free mobile app)
Upload the fileto the application and in the TYpe tab activate and wait to see the result.
Save in the library.
Here images from Capture on the ipad or on the iphone
