Development and Research – Using Illustrator.

To create a vector image I use Illustrator and the Trace tool, however after finding the right image I wanted to used I have to create a clipping mask (crop) the image to size so only the section of the photo I need is used, to do this you use the pen tool and create an outline carefully around the image by doing this you are selecting what part of the photo you want. You select your new outline and the original image to create a clipping mask, this now leaves you with just your selected image.

Secondly select your new image and (Object – Image trace) to stylise and make the image almost cartoon like, which doesnt only look a lot clearer but helps to keep the quality to a maximum.
