Is Live Trace Still Not Working How You’d Like? Take It a Step Further

If the previous tip doesn’t do the trick when working with Live Trace, then you may have to resort to some more extreme measures. Try opening the sketch in Photoshop. Choose Image> Adjustments>Levels to display the Levels dialog box. Try moving the black slider under Input Levels toward the right to darken the lines. When you’re done, click OK, save the image, and import this sketch into Illustrator again. Using Levels in Photoshop will help give Illustrator more definition with which to trace the image and you should come out with a much better result.
