    Why do you only have a jpg of it?
    I save all altered RAW files as tifs, just in case I need to enlarge them.

    yup can't go jpg to svg. What's done is done. All you can do is redo the artwork and save it out properly.

    What program did you do this in? What's the current size of the logo and how big are you trying to resize it to? If you did this in Photoshop, then I would suggest kicking it out as a png, then take it into Illustrator if you have that available and just import the file onto the stage. It will vectorize the image and will allow you to scale it with very little distortion. But I guess that all depends on how big you're trying to make this logo.

    Hell...you may even be able to do that with the jpeg.

    I believe you can, but you may have to find a converter online in order to achieve that. I'm not that familiar with CAD files, so I did a little research and this is what I was able to find for you:

    http://download.cnet.com/Easy-CAD-to-SVG-Converter/3000-18496_4-10974445.html

    Hopefully that helps out. It's on cnet, so no need to worry about virus' or the like. Let me know how that works for you if you decide to use it.

    If the JPG is big enough and the drawing is sharp, vector programs like Illustrator can outline it automatically..

    I lol'd.

    I've also been able to fix stuff really easily the way you're talking about with Macromedia Fireworks. I'm by no means a graphic designer, but I've done some pretty cool shit in that pirated program.


    yea, it can be done icon_smile.gif .... i was just saying if he wanted me, i could try to re do his logo ... haha and this other guy came with 12 years of experience .... hahah icon_smile.gif

    maybe he can teach me a thing or two icon_smile.gif

    That's the problem. It's only about 600 px wide.


    600px is good enough, send me a pv and Ill covert/redraw the logo for you.

    Every suggestion that has been posted is actually great.
    Id actually try to redraw the logo in illustrator. The Live-Trace feature in Illustrator is great, but never 100 percent accurate. And being a logo, a symbol that represents a business, it has to be immaculate.
    Keeping these sort of graphics, such as logos, in vector form is the best thing you can do so that they are malleable enough for a variety of output.

    icon_redface.gif it's ok Autonomous icon_smile.gif ..... you didnt undermine anyone icon_smile.gif ... i was just messing a little .....
    I was thinking on redrawing the logo because as you said, Live-Trace is not 100% accurate.

    anyways ... you should do it icon_smile.gif ..... if he wants us anyways...

    Thank you very much! I will report back this evening after I work on re-rendering the logo in CAD.


    Sweet deal, man! Good luck. : ]
