Cry Vector Magic has left Stanford as of 2-20-08 and is now charging for vectorizing bitmap images. 
Read about it here: http://vectormagic.com/blog/posts/1

If you sign up now they will give you four free tokens, one token = one vector.  They also say that a desktop version will be released, woo hoo Smile!

http://vectormagic.com/  will be the new home of vector magic

I wonder how many people would be ready to pay for it if they already have tracing software installed. anyway, it's good to see competition in this market...

also, kudos to many beta testers from this forum, who gave valuable input to these guys. I wish them luck all the way...

We knew this was coming, and I was prepared to pay for the service as I found its results far superior to Adobe's or Corel's offerings....but $2.00 per vector?  Maybe on something complex that I don't wish to redraw, but will not use it for casual use any longer.

I am really disappointed over this......when they gave notice last week I spent a number of hours vectoring a lot of my stuff - but not enough......I got maybe 200-250 things vectored but still could have doubles that......
 
This bites.........and vectormagic was pretty good.......now its gone, cause I ain't paying $2.00 a pop........

since they will let you do 4 "vextorizations" by March 5th......I wonder if you set up ficticious email accounts, if you can have unlimited vectoring til them??
 
shady thoughts.......shame on me.......Embarrassed
