How much can I expect to pay for a gif to eps conversion?

Posted on 2006-06-09

I have a gif that I need to converted to a high resolution eps. I can convert the file myself in Photoshop, but I'm assuming that when I zoom in Photoshop and see the pixels, that is what would happen at a printer if they blew up the eps image. So, I suppose I need to have someone work on the eps in such a way that the image quality is retained. It's
not a large image 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch, though it is a bit complex, colors and design, it's a coat of arms.

Any idea what a reasonable cost should be for doing this?

Although there are several converters available, they're not all what they seem. You might try this link to see what you think. You can download a trial and if you want to buy, it's about $5 or $50 USD.

Good Luck!

I guess I should have been more precise. I don't need a software converter, I need a human converter. I have photoshop ,it does a  great job of converting files, only the resolution is not adequate for the images to be blown up. That's because the original gif's are not of adequate resolotion. Hence, my real question is "How much does a human graphic designer charge for redesigning a gif image into higher resolution".

I normally charge $100 an hour for freelance work. I think that is inline with most people in my area.

Thanks, I needed an idea, I've found someone locally to do the work for 275.00 total for the two images. Yes they have to recreate the images in Illustrator

Thanks for the points, questfar - you are my first. You never forget your first, you know (LOL). I'm not sure I deserve 500 but I'll happily take them. Thanks again and good luck!
