How do I manually trace an image in Illustrator?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:38 pm

Tracing an image in Illustrator is a fairly simple process. First, you’ll need to create a new document, and then choose the Image Trace command from the Illustrator toolbar. After clicking the Trace button, you’ll be prompted to select the object you want to trace. You can use the Selection tool to select the object, or you can use the Direct Selection tool to select specific areas of the object.

PRO TIP: When tracing an image in Illustrator, it is important to use the correct settings to avoid distorting the image. The default settings may not be appropriate for all images, so it is important to experiment with different settings until you find the ones that work best for the image you are tracing.

Once you’ve selected the object, you can start tracing the image. To trace the image, simply click and drag the cursor over the desired area. You can also use the Pen tool to trace the image. Once you’ve traced the image, you can release the mouse button and the trace will be automatically saved in the document.
