VectorNow Raster to Vector converter is a stand-alone program to convert scanned drawings, maps and images to vector files (DWG/DXF) to edit in CAD applications.
A raster graphic is an image made of hundreds (or thousands or millions) of tiny squares of color information, referred to as either pixels or dots. (Technically pixels refer to color blocks viewed on an electronic monitor where as dots refer to the ink dots on a printed piece. But even professional designers, myself indluced, often use these two terms interchangeably.)
A vector graphic uses math to draw shapes using points, lines and curves. So whereas a raster image of a 1” x 1” square at 300 dpi will have 300 individuals pieces of information, a vector image will only contain four points, one for each corner; the computer will uses math to “connect the dots” and fill in all of the missing information.
Outlines: A vectorization method that generates lines and/or bezier curves along the borders of connected pixels.
Centerlines: A vectorization method that generates lines and/or arcs along the center of connected pixels.
This converter is simple, quick and easy to use. There are only steps for the conversion and settings are friendly, usually you may use default settings.
