    Do you only have a picture or do you have the item? If you have the item then scan it instead of a picture and you should be able to use auto-trace and get what you need.
    I have done so much with so little for so long, that I can do almost anything with practically nothing...

    Thank you Gary. I only have this picture and tracing it does not work. I am stumped. Tried it in bitmap trace and nope. Is there something else I can try to just get the dogs head vectorized?

  4. If you Google Samoyed Vector you will see a lot of nice pictures, maybe not this exact one, but some very nice headshots. Iím going on the theory they all look alike, lol.

    What isn't working? Trace should be able to do a decent job of it and with some editing you should have something workable. Or, as Bob suggested, you could find a better image to work with.

    How is this for a start?

    This took less than 5 minutes using X8.

    Glad to help. Now on to the bigger question - why couldn't you do it? This was a three step process - first edit the pic in photo paint to remove mostly everything but the dog, and use the color mask tool to select the appropriate parts and color them in black. Second - use Corel auto-trace. Third - ungroup and delete everything but the dog. This sounds like a lot but it really only takes a couple of minutes when you know how.
