just wondering, if adobe has not made an OS X version of the great piece of software, what are people using to vectorize graphics in OS X?

Streamline is the only good reason to keep Classic running on my iBook. No OS X alternatives that I know of. The autotracing in Illustrator never cut the mustard for me.

I personally asked Colin Smith of Adobe whether StreamLine would ever be updated, and the answer was "definitely not." I haven't given up hope of seeing the functionality rolled into Illustrator at some point.

Cheers :-> Bill

It's unfortunate when good programs fall by the wayside, I would love to see the older Kai's Power Tools filters updated.

There is still KPT 7 but versions 3,4,5( I never saw 6) as well as KPT Convolver had some of the best filters I've seen and are not available for OSX as far as I can see.

Cool

Hey there,

Try looking at www.silhouetteonline.com

I had a gander at the tryout a year ago; and it wasn't too bad. I still use Streamline under OS 9; but I would prefer to move on to only OS X software.

Cheers,

Noodleboy.

I've actually moved my vectorizing over to MM Flash's Bitmap tracing feature. Not *exactly* what it was intended for, but I like the results all the same.

They would be vectorizing if they had the tool. I'm baffled as to why Adobe let such an useful tool as Streamline fade away.

This is a piece of software which likewise lives on one of my older computers. Actually, on my IIci, hooked up to an old HP grayscale scanner. For B & W artwork vectorizing (of which I do a LOT), it's still a workhorse setup.

Sure, I could run it in Classic, but I don't want to.

Oh, yeah I also have Photoshop 4 installed, because believe it or not, it does certain things better AND faster than the current version. And it 's compatible with the old KPT. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Cheers,
