To do this, you simply need to save your Photoshop file with the layers, and open it in Illustrator. You will be asked to convert the layers to objects or to flatten the layers. Choose "convert to objects". Then you can simply save that new Adobe Illustrator vector file to an .ai or a .pdf.
Just so, how do I convert a JPEG to a vector file?
Export the image as a vector file.
- Click the File or Illustrator menu and select "Save As."
- Save a copy as an .ai file. This will let you easily re-open the file in Illustrator and make more edits.
- Select a vector format from the "Save As Type" menu.
- Do not save the file as PNG or JPG, as these are not vector formats.
How do you save a file as a vector?
If you want to export a vector image, you have to do "File > Save As.." and then select the file format like .svg, .eps, ai (Illustrator) and .pdf. These images are visible only through any software or in the browser. If you do "File > Export" you can only save a raster image (no zoomable and resizable).
Is a vector file an EPS file?
Not necessarily. An eps file may contain raster, vector, or both. Some suppliers when requesting simply for an "eps file" may really be asking for a 100% vector eps file, and this should be clarified since many non-vector programs can also save as eps.
