As an illustrator who works in Photoshop, I still have to provide vector files to my clients sometimes, such as with T-shirt graphics. The problem is that my style has a lot of subtle textures and details. I've had very little success using the Image Trace function in Adobe Illustrator — it always takes away too much detail and renders the artwork unusable. Luckily, I've found another way to create perfect vector files that preserve my analogue textures and details that result in perfect prints. In this video, I share how I use Photoshop itself to vectorize my artwork and export it to an Adobe Illustrator (EPS or AI) file.
