If you are working as a graphic designer you know the importance that vectorizing images has, as once they are vectors, you can transform them as much as you like with no quality loss, plus you can keep the vector image for future projects and edit it as you wish.
But the process to vectorize images can be long and boring as you have to redraw the image, and of course nothing ensures that it will be perfect.
That’s why Vector Magic Generator is becoming so popular, as this free tool converts bitmaps into vectors automatically and extremely easy.
Just upload the image, select the configuration and the application will do the rest.
