    Hi All, I am trying to integrate the autotrace web intreface. I could integrate it well. But looks like the converted images are not giving me a good quality.

      If the images has gradient effect it spoils the quality.. but the same image works well on vector magic.
      Any solutions?

          Do you want to post an example of the problem you see with the gradients? When I vectorize I'm specifically looking to *remove* the gradients (because vectorization can and should turn a linear gradient into rectangular patches of color, right?). Like Simon says, using sigmoid-contrast in ImageMagick before vectorizing helps me focus on the parts of the image (for example, a face that's in shadow against a bright background) I'm interested in. If you use sigmoid-contrast to pull out the important part of the image, you often wipe out mild background gradients in the process.
