View Full Version : Need to Trace this Location Map

08-16-2006, 09:47 PM

I need to trace this location map www.clientpreview.co.uk/necr/map.png, I have downloaded Illustrator CS2, as it had the trace command with it, I have tried it and the result is not bad, but I dont know what to do next.

How do I edit certain paths etc, am I better off tracing the example by hand using the pen tool (although my illustrator skills are novice!), it just seems a very daunting task using the pen tool to do such an area.

Any help, or suggestions with this is really appreciated, as I need to crack this as soon as poss.

Thanks for your help!

In Illustrator you'll have the Selection Tool and the Direct Selection Tool. The difference being one edits the entire path, while the other only edits the part of the path that you click on.

After the Trace action is complete, the paths may be grouped together. It may help to Select All and Ungroup these paths.

Using the Direct Selection Tool you should be able to modify any paths to your liking.
