    Hand drawn image into vector??

    What is the best way to turn a hand drawn line drawing into a vector?

    I have Flash, Freehand, Firework, PS elements, and swish. Which would be the best to do this and how?

    Thanks.

    I'd trace it in freehand using the Pen Tool. Its the most acurate way there is. Time consuming and hard? Yes, but the results are always top quality. whatever you do, stay away from "trace bitmap" in flash.
    It must be obvious day at camp stupid

    Adobe got something to... but lost the name of it...

    It was for me a good program with lots of settings.

    yeah, it's pretty good, but of course the vector art isn't too clean (so you have to have a very nice scanner, know how to use it right, work on the pic a little (for contrast and lightning) in Photoshop and then put it in streamline, and then clean the vector art a bit).
