This is a free OpenSource program that does a decent trace bitmap:
Inkscape

:Edit:
Also Adobe's Streamline

Belive it or not, I did the Streamline demo, and liked the free Inkspace better.

I don't know about CS, as I have 7, but you should see a button that says 'load'?

Select 'Styles' from the dropdown menu, and then click the 'load' button. You will now see the styles directory.

Select the shape, copy what your are wanting in there, and then *paste into*, you can then try the different transform tools to try to get it to wrap to the shape. Under the edit menu Edit>>>Transform I'm not sure this would work perfectly, as such actions are normally done in a vector program such ...

Try these steps:

Auto color - auto levels - auto contrast.

If that doens't work totally...select the objects, inverse the selection and then bring up curves to whiten.

Not a glitch. Make sure you are in RGB mode:

I'll bet anything you are in another color mode.

The site is http://www.lifepics.com/ and the source code is not encrypted,
but I'm on my way out right now, so I can't look around.

The url provided is simply to a jpg file, so what you see when you view source is naturally looking like gibberish.

Well I'm not seeing anything happen in Opera, Mozilla, or IE, but If you had a link for the actual html page that this is on, you'll most likely find a javacsript, or dhtml rollover script. One that works only in IE I'm sure.

A 'lite' version of Nik Color Effects Pro (2.0 IE) came with my new Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet. Of the 8 filters this version has, I use only the 'Brilliance/Warmth' and 'Contrast Only' filters the most, although recently while working on some very old photos found just a couple of weeks ago, I ...

That looks like it was either hand drawn using Illustrator and a Wacom tablet, or it might have been traced from a photo with a Wacom. Most plugins that do this type of effect add texture to an image. You can create similar effects..not as exact and smooth as that though, with Photoshop's own filter...

I'm a Photoshop user, but I'd suggest Photoshop Elements over PSP any day. It has many, many, many of Photoshop's own features. But the number one reason? Quality. You simply cannot beat Adobe's rendering engine. The quality of your final output will be much much better with Adobe imaging products.

For shapes/lines: Fisrt of all hold down the shift key while drawing shapes and lines, this will keep things straight and in proportioin. Se...

Use the drop down font list to find the dingbat font that you have installed that has those symbols.

Then just type whatever keyborad letter it is that corresponds the that symbol in the dingbat font.

Plugin Galaxy has a 'star filter' that works great for this. See here. Or.... Just use a bush and white color and reduce the opacity of the brush so that your 'sparkle' is just barely visible. Even if it's too much use Edit>>Undo to reduce the effect by using the slider and a blend mode.

Don't think so.....

Not that I know of. Do over and save as an eps or pdf and make sure to retain all layers, vector info and embed fonts. (pdf is recommended) Do NOT rasterize text layers, do NOT flatten. (This will rasterize everything) .pdf is fast becoming that standard format that printers want to recieve. (Make s...

Question answered in a duplicate post made in the Photoshop forum down below.

You need to use File>>Open, and not the 'import' menu.
