So I have some designs that I'm trying to get print ready. They're all 1 to 2 colors and were designed in Photoshop at 8 inches x 8 inches and 300 dpi. I didn't realize, but the designs actually need to be 11 inches x 11 inches and 300 dpi for the print. As a result, I'm trying to pick up Adobe Illustrator and make the files print ready for that size. My first instinct was to vectorize the image.
I am using the Image Trace tool on a layer that is the 1 color separated from the white background. My problem is that the Image Trace is leaving out a lot of details that are necessary for the design. You can see in the image what I am referring to. Is there anyway to include these details (other than doing it by hand, too many details missing to do that), or alternatively, is there any better way to make an image in Photoshop print ready at a larger size?
