    Convert PNG to AI file

    Can you convert a PNG to AI?

    Yes, you can convert a PNG (raster) image to an AI (vector) file by tracing the image to create a corresponding vector graphic. This process can be done using Adobe Illustrator, which offers a powerful image trace feature that allows you to convert raster images into vector graphics with varying levels of detail and complexity.

    In this blog we explain the fastest way to convert a PNG to an AI file.

    AI files are the native vector file type for Adobe Illustrator. An AI file allows designers to infinitely scale their images, drawings, and graphics without affecting resolution. Not all AI files are vector files. It depends on how the file is built. A PNG is a pixel file.
