To convert your JPG, PSD, PNG, or GIF logo to vector format, you must go through a process of vectorizing. This process is converting from pixel pictures to mathematical traces.
I will describe four options that you may consider on how to convert your logo to vectors.
By this time, you already know why it is important to have your logo in vector format. Now, in this article, my purpose is to give you some options so that you can have your logo in a format that gives you the flexibility and scalability that your brand needs.
I want you to know these options and decide what is better for you and the results you can get from each one.
Option #1: Automatic conversion to vectors.
This is the easiest and fastest way, but far from being the best. You might find a lot of websites that do automatic conversions, let me explain where the problem with automatic conversions is.
It’s a problem coming from the original image and its accuracy. This automatic software uses an algorithm that will convert pixels into math expressions, as said above.
The algorithm is designed to understand the shapes and colors, but still sees pixels. And, depending on the resolution of the original picture and how the algorithm is designed, you might get a pixelated image but in vectors.
Also, if your picture has shadows, gradients, or several shades of colors, the software will try to find the closest average color of the gradations, turning it into color patches.
Automatic vectorization is better with flat images, with 1 to 4 colors and no shadows or lights in it.
Software like Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw also includes an automatic converter. However, in the case you already have any of these programs, the best you can do is recreate the logo to get the best of a quality vector file.
Option #2: Do it yourself.
The second option is Do-it-your-self.
Some software can help you to do this. As previously commented, Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw are the best options I know to work with vector images, but these programs are not cheap and are a large investment if you want only to convert your logo to a vector format.
But if you are a casual user of vector graphics, you may want to download other free software like Inkscape that may help you with your purpose.
I’m preparing a tutorial to show you how you can use vector software to convert your JPG logo to a vector logo. As soon as I finish, I will publish it on this blog. Send me a message if you want me to notify you via email when the tutorial is ready.
Option #3: Pay a Graphic designer.
This is one of the best options if you want a professional designer to recreate your logo in vector graphics. However, a creative might not want to spend his time for a few bucks doing a “minor job”.
He or she might suggest you design a brand-new logo, and that will cost you a lot more than you thought at the beginning.
Also, you must invest your time in looking for a good designer that fits your budget.
Option #4: Vectoryourlogo.com
Vectoryourlogo.com specializes only in one thing, getting the best from the image of your logo to deliver a great handcrafted vectorized logo.
