    Posted: 06/Aug/2016 at 1:41pm
Hi guys, OK so today I want to learn to turn a pen drawing on paper I have made into a vector image I can use for a business card. I went to my local book shop to find a book to help with this but no luck or at least I don't understand. Using illustrator and photoshop. Its so annoying because I can draw the image I want on paper but can't do this on my mac. Guess that's why I'm not a designer!! Any help or advice?? Thank you in anticipation.

I wouldn't use photoshop    but since you are on a mac   use Illustrator if you have it  
first do you have a scan of the image you want ?    If so you can import it into IL  and maybe create the vector    can you post the image here  as a jpeg  then we can see how complex it is    maybe someone on here can help you with it
and by the way welcome to the forum

I might move this to the help heading  but not until you see this

Hi Mark, 

Thanks for the reply but I don't seem to be getting anything. What was the file you uploaded?

Cheers
