Vectorizeing bitmaps just got easier!

I ran across the VectorMagic website today and gave it a whirl. Very impressive service. Not only is it free, but it does a hell of a job. I uploaded this little gif:

I just wanted to share this cool service with my loyal readers. Another very cool aspect of this service is it’s Flash based. You’ll notice that it has a Flex interface and is running in a Flash player. For the type of work I do, this is one of the more useful online applications I’ve run across. Hopefully the people at Standford have heard about Adobe AIR and are working on a desktop version of VectorMagic! hint hint
