    Not sure if this is the proper sub-forum, but I know you guys are qualified!

    The Live Trace feature gives me a funky cartoon-ish look, even when adjusting all the different parameters.

    Is there anyone who is good with vectors that can outline the columns in this image and make it into a vector?

    Live trace ftl. Pen tool + you = win. Yes, it takes time. Yes, it can be tedious. You get what you give.

    there are different options for live trace, if you're still going to use it. you can get pretty precise with it, but it's difficult to tweak and often never land on something that you exactly want.

    edit: nevermind. didn't read that you've been tweaking already.

    there are some very similar ones, but for some reason i'm stuck with the symmetry and simplicity that this one shows.
