Raster graphics vs. vector the myths debunked

Poppy-illustrations-Tristan-B-for-lettering-rx-1080

I think the biggest mistake a lot of artists wanting to use their illustrations for web and print do is think they need Illustrator to do so. This often stops them from taking the next steps to get their artwork to a larger audience or to share for commerce. Illustrator is a wonderful program, but it is complex and expensive. The difference between cleaning and digitizing your illustrations in Photoshop versus Illustrator is Photoshop is a raster graphic and Illustrator is a vector. Raster graphics lose quality the larger you enlarge them so a raster graphic would not be good for signage, but a vector graphic would. What I am seeing though is most artists on the interwebs are wanting to include their illustrations on items that are made to be printed small like an invite or a logo for a web site. If you scan your artwork in a high resolution (this drawing was scanned at 600 dpi) or photograph your artwork at a high resolution you WILL be able to use it, at good quality for a lot of applications, including print! We created a super easy way to clean your lettering and illustrations getting it ready to share for web or print via our Lettering Rx Photoshop action set. Michelle cleaned this for me in about a minute, prior to us creating the set, I don’t think I could have easily coerced her into cleaning my artwork for me, because seriously to do it manually is tedious and takes forever! We created this tool so you can get back to what you enjoy about illustrating–making illustrations! We are giving away a set of Lettering Rx to one individual and a friend, visit our @fotorxco Instagram feed to get the deets!

We are feeling waves of enormous gratitude all around and we want to share our good fortune with you!  When we created Foto Rx we wanted to make tools for those in need of visual assistance for their brand, it started out as photo-centric, but we quickly saw a need for cleaning up lettering and illustrations, either scanned, or even photographed with your mobile device! This handy tool has helped thousands of artists take their lettering and illustrations from paper to pixel, allowing them to share their work in a professional manor and to create beautiful end products with their work, all without the pain of ever having to open up the daunting (and expensive) Illustrator program. In a couple of clicks lettering and illustrations are cleaned and digitized, ready to be used in your next project. In the image above we used some of Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls lettering, photographed on an Iphone and Lettering Rx to digitize–easy peasy!
