“Mrs. Flamingo’s tutorial” is a dead link, so could you re-post it?

I’m not sure I understand the question (is this a “bit map” versus “vectors” thing?) but the right link will help!

Yes I’m confused about your question as well. A vector image is one that has to be created in specific programs, they are shapes you can adjust to any size without loss of data. You could easily recreate that image as long as you know what you’re doing.

Is that what you meant?

Also, I feel as a Graphic Designer I should mention that I don’t agree with directly copying someone’s design..

The program you would want to use to “vectorize” an image would probably be Adobe Illustrator. I work in advertising and that is the program we use, at least.

So you want to “vectorize” the…aquarium? As in the building itself? It might look a little confusing as a logo of sorts, if you consider the shapes. And without a background reference (like the sky, sidewalk, plants, etc) it might be even more difficult to understand as a symbol.

I’d suggest maybe the Newport Aquarium shark with the words “Newport Aquarium” underneath or something.

@graceMOH:  If I’m understanding what you are looking for, you want to turn the color image into a black and white line drawing/clipart that could be used in the flow chart.  I don’t know about using the computer to do this, but what I would try is printing the first image of the aquarium.  Take a piece of tracing paper, and trace out the lines of the drawing, and then scan the traced image back into the computer.  It would give you the simpler, cleaner image you want and still be easily recognizable .

Is this kind of what you’re looking for…? The Live Trace function isn’t going to work well on a full color photo.
