this is extracted from the help files -

3 Enter a Color Threshold value between 1 and 500.
When two pixels are compared, if the difference in the RGB color values is less than the color threshold, the two pixels are considered the same color. As you increase the threshold value, you decrease the number of colors.
4 For Minimum Area, enter a value between 1 and 1000 to set the number of surrounding pixels to consider when assigning a color to a pixel.
5 For Curve Fit, select an option from the pop-up menu to determine how smoothly outlines are drawn.
6 For Corner Threshold, select an option from the pop-up menu to determine whether sharp edges are retained or smoothed out.

To create a vector graphic that looks most like the original bitmap, enter the following values:

Color Threshold: 10
Minimum Area: 1 pixel
Curve Fit: Pixels
Corner Threshold: Many Corners

Play with the settings until you're happy with the results.
Sorry if you've done all that and need more help than the help files offer.
There's not much else you can do, really.

Hi fm88
Welcome to FlashKit!
Questions such as yours would get a better response (not that David didn't give a good one ;) ) in one of the 'help' forums. If you had provided an email address, I would have moved this to General Help and advised you of where it went. Since I have no way of notifying you, I'll leave it here.
