You can create embroidery designs from both bitmap (JPEG, TIFF) or vector (SVG, AI) sources, but vectors are always preferred choice. Nevertheless, you can find several embroidery software that have innate "digitizing" function that allows users to use raster graphics as template for the embroidery and thus basically perform tif to hus conversion.
