    This is not the correct forum, but you can do it with Flash. Import your image, click on it and then go to Modify - Bitmap - Trace Bitmap. You need to play with those values to get it as close to the original.

    Can someone/moderator move this too the correct place i need help in redrawing/line art whatever its called.

    i don't want too simply trace the entire image in flash.....i want too redraw various parts of jpegs/images in vector format so when the image is expanded it doesn't become pixelated and i have a nice clear image instead of the poor quality jpeg.

    you can use the built in flash tracer which will try to vectorize the bitmap to a vector. its somewhere near- transform > bitmap > trace bitmap (search in the menus)
    This tool used to be free (it is still but with some limitations though):

    other decent solutions (automatic) are: Corel Trace. Illustrator´s method is crap imo.

    if you have the time hand reconstructing the graphic usually turns into better results but takes time.

    click on the "outline mode" icon (the color square icon) on the layer- its propably because the shape isn´t closed- also if you have still dificulties try to devide it into smaler fill parts to find faster the opening you propably missed somewhere
