Convert JPEG bitmap image format to Adobe Illustrator graphics.

We have found 7 software records in our database eligible for .jpg to .ai file format conversion.

You can definitely import raster images, for example JPEGs, to Adobe Illustrator as objects but that's not a proper conversion. Some other programs may offer saving to AI format, but most of them save the picture as object and do not convert bitmap data to vectors.

However, a lof of users are looking for a way to create a vector AI graphics from JPEG bitmap sources, for example to turn a picture of some logo to actual vector Illustrator graphics.

It's doable, but requires moderate knowledge of Illustrator and its functions, especially one called LiveTrace. This function basically allows bitmap to vector conversion, but requires that the person doing the tracing knows thing or two about the workflow in Illustrator.

You can find more about LiveTrace function in this excellent tutorial Converting Rasters to Vectors Using Live Trace in Illustrator by Mordy Golding.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned jpg to ai. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
