VectorEye is a great raster to vector converter that exports to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), Ps, Eps, Flash macromedia and xaml windows vista. It recognizes all major raster formats (BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF). Tint area and line converter. Raster images made from pixels acquired from scanner or CCD camera can be translated into scalable geometric shapes. Vector based images are the best way to display high quality graphics with the minimum amount of information. Extracting this information from raster images is a great challenge, and algorithms will probably never replace our artistic sensitivity. However VectorEye was designed to do better than current products, and gives surprisingly good results. VectorEye combines efficient colour segmenting with robust curve fitting. VectorEye can convert tint areas and lines. Algorithms were developed in close relations with Research in image processing and without forgetting artistic considerations. The curve fitting is precise and allows you to use VectorEye to vectorize fonts and inked drawings. Moreover, the curves are always well preserved since the fitting can smooth big curves without losing details. Unlike other tracing programs, it simplifies the result image by removing non significant details and extracts the image essence. As a result, files are much smaller and ready for the web. Compatible with Adobe, Corel, Jasc, Macromedia, Microsoft and all Svg, Eps, Ps, Flash and xaml editors.
