HOW TO MAKE A VECTOR IMAGE USING ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR by Vanessa Alexis
how to make a vector image using Adobe Illustrator
- Drag and drop or open your image file in Illustrator. Crtl/Cmd O or File > Open
- Select the down arrow on Image Trace and choose silhouette and then expand. This will outline the shape. If there is a white background behind it, no worries, just double-click on the graphic and remove unwanted white space and then double click to ex out.
- Now you are able to manipulate your graphic size, create new elements, and customize color.
- This is great for certain logo re-creations, illustrations, monograms, stencil designs, graphic elements to add to your design library. Here I made an Instagram stencil. The white space is there because when cut, it will take the form of its shape so that I fill in the rest.
