First time posting to Stack and I would identify myself as a hobbyist with adobe suites and the design world...
I'm doing a product card for print in Illustrator. It was requested to have an "As seen in" section near the bottom of the card and Logo's were pulled from websites for this purpose. The problem I'm running into is after removing the background in Photoshop. It appears to be very rough on the curves and some of the text (pixelation). For Web this isn't a problem but this is a handout card and having the rough curves could be visible to everyone reading it.
My process is: - Take the supplied logo (.jpg format), put it into Photoshop. - Use the magic wand tool to select the background and erase. - Use the magic wand tool select the main font and logo and fill it in as soft grey. - Export as .png and load into Illustrator project.
Is there any or technique after removing the background to smooth the curves back out in Illustrator? Am I missing a simple step? I've tried to vector it in Illustrator but the text and logo become too warped and the lines become inconsistent.
Any help is appreciated!
