   This site converts bitmap images to vector art – it's an online auto-tracer.

Just upload your image and we will vectorize it for you.
bitmap to vector conversion

Vector art is useful because it allows you to scale an image without making it blurry or pixelated

Wow. That's very, very cool.

It's been a few years since I last used a vectorizer (Corel's). It's striking how much better this one is – particularly for colour photos.

And of course you can get artistic effects by turning the quality to "low":

Wow! This is VERY nice. I took several logo-type images that I use on my sites, and ran them through VectorMagic, and now, I have very nice, clean vector images that I can re-size to my heart's content. THis will make for much cleaner-looking logos.

Thanks SO much for the heads-up on this one!
