Can you help to improve this Jpeg please?

Customer has given me this to draw in. Doing it wouldn't be a problem if it was better quality but as you can see........it's crap! Anyone got the software to improve this for me? Would be a big help. Thanks.

unfortunately if the file size and image quality is too low then its a case of 'crap in- crap out' if you know what I mean.

If the quality or sharpness isn't there to start with you wont improve it - I would quote the customer to re-create it or they send you a higher res or larger file/better image.

No mate, there's been a topic on here before regarding some software that improves low res images. Just has to be a bit better for me to draw in.

I have heard of a bit of software called Streamline many moons ago which converts photoshop images into a vector graphic but Illustrator can do that now anyway.

hope you can get it sorted.

I have just tried it in Photozoom and to be honest it's just as sh1t as it first started mate. You normally get at least a bit of improvement but not this time mate.

Cheers

There are a couple of similar ones on istock vectors, maybe download a thumbnail to give you a better starting point to trace?
I'm sure Ive seen that image somewhere before though, must be on the net somewhere..

could you try and convince them to have something else along the same lines which would be easier to trace?

you could employ someone with artists expression to re-create it, maybe someone with paint brushes?

Recently I had similar case where customer wanted to have print from
internet picture. Of course resolution was not useful.

I gave file to artist to draw it again on paper and than I scaned it.

Cost for artist was around 100 pounds but he spent several hours for drawing. I would spent even more trying to redraw in Photoshop or Illustrator.

Regards
Saso

am i losing the plot here.....if you vectorise it then fill in the layers to get the image effect, why would you need to employ a "digital artist" to do it? i was under the impression we were all "digital artists" totally confused.com :o

I think saso gave it to a 'real' artist Nik, then scanned it and revectored that file.

Personally, I tell them if they can't supply me with a decent pic, then I can't supply a decent sign.

I'll find a similar pic on istock or vectorstock and give them that option. Otherwise, I spend my time helping out other clients that aren't as much trouble.

If it is off the net, changes are its copyrighted anyway?
