Ok back about 5 years ago I went to this tech school and went through all the different programs they had there and in one of them, probly graphic design we used a program where we drew an image on paper, scanned it, then was able to trace it on the computer and edit it further. Anyone know of a program like this out there for Macs still?

Adobe Illustrator can do this. It's called the LiveTrace function.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

You can trace it by hand in Illustrator, too. Just lock the picture to the artboard and away you go.

If you want a free one, Inkscape (running under X11) has a variety of trace functions. They're not up to the same standard as Illustrator, but they're free and pretty reliable.

Adobe Streamline may be the app you had used 'back then'. I honestly don't even know if it is a stand-alone application now that Illustrator has the live trace feature.

Thanks for the tip on Inkscape, I'll check that out since I like to pen-and-ink drawings to use.
