I have an image in PNG format (dimension 1700×2550 px). I'm using Adobe Illustrator to convert to SVG, but the SVG copy is blurry.

Steps I'm using:

  • open image in Adobe Illustrator.
  • select image trace from the window menu and run trace
  • select image trace and expand from the object menu
  • export to svg from file menu

Any help appreciated as I'm new to Illustrator

*** UPDATE ***

This is the link to the original PNG: https://obs-docs.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/licence_summary.png

This is a link to the converted SVG: https://obs-docs.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/licence-summary.svg

  • Its impossible to say anything. In my experience people use the term blurry wrong and nine times out of ten its not blurry at all bot something else.

  • @joojaa in comparison to the png version its clearly blurry especially the text in the image.

  • We would need to see a screenshot of the image traced graphic, a link to the SVG or a screenshot of the layers/appearance panel. Not sure how we would know without seeing the file.

  • Can you share the PNG image, or at least one that is similar? Not all raster images are suitable for auto tracing. Text may not trace well, also results very much depend on the quality of the original. Garbage in = garbage out.

    But you are lucky: Driving license authorities write to you a brand new license as soon as you pass all legal and practical requirements to have one. There's no need to make one by yourself.
