Hello all,

 

I have an image file with my old military unit where they have updated our unit patch. Is there anyone who could retrace the image into a clean vector file? I have tried the fee online apps and nothing seems to get the image clean.

Hi, Keahi,

Basically, the starting image is really "dirty." There are lots of compression artifacts which muddle the shape edges, but one can still see the patch's thread work, which adds more extraneous detail. 

I tried a couple of different vectorizing settings, and did a little little image processing to clean it up for other tries, and got results much like PixelPest posted.

One might start from there, and after lots of node tweaking, get a vector restoration that is a smoother and more accurate reproduction.

Couldn't you just put out a word to the unit, there must be a good version of this, even in raster format that can be sent to you, else it's going to be several cups of coffee and an afternoon doodling with the pen tool.
