Raster to Vector?

I have a relatively raster logo that I need to convert to vector 
format so I can cleanly resize it whenever I wish.  You can see the 
logo at http://www.livingscenes.com/images/crs_logo.gif.

Is there a simple way to do this?  I was hoping a I could select the 
individual sections of the logo and somehow convert the outline of the 
selection to a vector but I did not see a way to do that.  I am using 
PSP 8.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob Flora

PSP does not do it automatically, although this logo is simple
enough to trace with the Pen tool in vector mode. Fifteen minutes
work when familiar with the tool, or an excellent learning task if
not.

If you would like to try it, find how the Pen tool works in Help >
Contents > Drawing and Editing Objects > Drawing Objects. For
techniques, check out a few of the hundreds of tutorials in the
Vector category at http://www.psplinks.com.

I mailed you the pspimage, tell me if you didn't get it.

A learning task then.  :-)  I really do need to play with vectors 
more.

Ok, apparently there's a software tool for everything.  :-)  Thanks.

Oooohhh!  The graphic on the web page looks great!  Unfortunately, the 
e-mail did not make it to me.  Try the following address instead:  
bfloraATintrexDOTnet (replace the caps as appropriate, gee, I hope the 
spambots can't read this sort of thing yet).  Many thanks, I really 
appreciate it!

Raster to Vector conversion
Hi all, I am working on a project to create a tool which takes a 0-1 bitmap file and produces an orthogonal vectorization out of it. The bitmap file is going to be the parcel map of a country. So what I need to extract out of it is the boundaries between the provinces/states. I need to do that in an orthogonal way. Which means, every vector is either horizontal or vertical. And I need to further process the vectorization for simplification. I dont really want to have a hundred different vectors representing each province.

Color raster to colour vector
Hi, Is there any software that can do color raster to color vector conversion? I've searched on google for a while and I can only find software that converts to black lines. What I'm after is something that could convert an image that has been simplified with the 'cut-out' filter to vector polygons. Does a vector format exist that can support this kind of image?
