There you get vector files whose color you can change with just a few clicks.
Creating such a monogram is very time-consuming even without changes. Therefore we should already know exactly what should be changed. It should be more promising if you create a clean sketch yourself, which we can then convert into a vector drawing for you.
The PDF file is indeed a vector file and those vectors were created in such a way that accurately represents that lack of smoothness/sharpness in some cases.
I took the PDF file and converted it to EPS, read into Adobe AI, and copy and pasted the vectors into Photoshop Paths.
I provide the images below to give you and idea that cleaning it up is not so easy and approaches starting from scratch.
I did a count of both the black paths and white paths in the vector file. This does not totally account for the complexity yet gives an idea of how many objects are in the vector image (though it does not say how complex each one is)
Black objects were 58 and the number of white objects (or cutouts out of the black pieces) was 246.
The first image below shows all the vector paths involved with each of the points that create each vector. Fixing the image means adjusting these points. Not clear there is any automated way to do this so a ton of manual time.
The second image is a blow up near the center so you can see the details of the number of vector paths and the number of points in each path (I made the object gray to make it easier to see)
There is no "Make it look good" button in Photoshop yet maybe some creative forum member has a thought or way to improve the image without manually adjusting all of the vectors.
I suspect the original image was not in vector format yet possible a raster painted object that was automated to create the vectors. It is often the case with that approach that trying to fix that as a starting point is more work than starting over. Hope another forum member can show a better way. If nothing else, this might help explain why no one has grabbed on to this "free" request for adjustments.
First image is the overall vector image:
Second image show just the center lower portion of the image to show the complexity of this vector file:
I agree with Illusion that there are many free vector sources for the energy of some internet search that might be a better first approach that creating a vector file from scratch.
Even a bit crazier is to re-create a vector file from an embroidery patch with details that I doubt you wanted. Yet just for grins, that's what is provided below.
- Search for the embroidery patch online and dowloaded the JPEG file
- Increased 6X in size through Gigapixel AI
- Selected the gold color in the image and used Select > Similar to capture most of the edges
- Converted Section to Path in the Paths panel
- Converted Paths into a vector Shape
- Saved as PDF file for the gold outline
The vector file is attached (tons of vector detail) and I place the vector file over black in the image shown below and of course with vector files you can change the color as desired
