    but it won't make it cuttable vector art...

    photoshop --> open JPG save as EPS

    coreldraw --> import JPG export as EPS

    Many other programs will do similar...


    if, as Bigdawg mentioned, you really want vector artwork, then CorelTrace or Adobe Streamline (if you can find a copy)

    I much prefer Streamline -- I still use version 4.0 and in my opinion it is still better than any version of CorelTrace ever.

    I am new to this and feel very dumb. What I need is to be able to change the file once I get it into Corel Draw. I have the "trace bitmap" option but it comes out distorted. I have used Vector Magic site and that seems to work, but I was hoping to get advise if there are better programs.

    nothing, that i know of anyway, will work as well as doing it manually. and the best at manually (and quickly) is The Vector Doctor.

    Better than Vector Magic?

    Vector Doctor...

    No program is going to do more than trace it for you if you aren't able to recreate it.

    inkscape has a decent trace function and is much better than corel trace and vector magic...but nothing beats the vector doctor
