I have a paper image (image wrote on a piece of paper) which I need to edit as same as I can edit vector graphics. As I am not good with graphics, I do not know which steps to take to make it digital and convert it to vector.

So, the steps I may take are:
1. shot it via digital camera
2. convert it to vector

Is this possible at all?


Once you have your scan or picture, you want to be using Adobe Illustrator. It has a feature called "live trace" which will generate a vector from an image.

There are lots of tutorials out there, here is a top result from google:

    There are also other vector drawing products that can trace bitmaps e.g. Corel Draw and Inkscape – RedGrittyBrick May 9 '12 at 22:08
