I have scanned an peace of glass.
I see the edges but if I zoom in then it does not look like a line.
What I need is the edge structure as line which can be turned in to a graphic. I want it to look like it was made by a program and not scanned.
How do I achieve this?

Very simple. The best way is to redraw it. Use the photo as a reference.
- Launch Illustrator.
- Open the image you just photographer in Illustrator.
- Lock the layer.
- Create a rectangle using a Rectangle tool on top of the image same width and height.
- Goto Filters/Stylize/Rounded Corners and round the rectangle edges to fit the radius of your image shape.
- using a pen tool create cutout paths for the camera and button.
- select all shapes and using the Pathfinder tool, Minus the front elements.
That should do it. Oh, and if you're using a different tool, like Gimp, the steps should be very similar (I think).
