Free Autotracer Online

You can use this Autotracer to convert raster images into vector graphics. This process is called tracing or vectorization.  Tracing can be done by hand or you can use a tool which does this cumbersome job automatically. But usually some post-processing is necessary.  Most auto-tracing tools cost a lot of money, if you do not need them regularly this tool is an option.
