This is the type of the image I am hoping to autotrace
I have gotten to the point of tracing in Adobe Illustrator as stroke. Obvously the text tracing doesn't work and I will need to retype it or run it through OCR separately, but all the arrows and rombs on the pattern do not come out correctly when traced as a stroke. What would be a best procedure for tracing something like that? What would be the best procedure for preparing the piece for tracing, other than ironing the paper? Anything I need to do in Photoshop? Or will it truly be faster to hand trace with a pen tool?
Thank you for your help.
