How to Convert JPG to Vector

While JPG is useful for saving pictures, vectors are mathematical creations and the programs used to make them show how images should be drawn, rather than how they appear. The difference between JPG and Vector is that the Vector picture can be reproduced at any size and in any position, without losing its quality. A Vector resized to as much as five times its original dimension, is redrawn exactly, except it is done at a different size.
Converting a JPG to a vector is not a simple task. It involves re-drawing the JPG in a Vector image.
