I am very new to illustrator (or design at least).. I am not sure if there is an easy way to do this. I have several colored vector eps files that I would like to convert them to black and white images for coloring. I already know how to take off all the colors as you see in the image below... however, my problem is mainly 2 things:
I know one can go over all the paths and objects and edit them in illustrator to make it work, but I have a lot of images to go over and this will be too much time consuming...
So,, is there please an easy to do way?
It might be very easy.. but I am very new with no graphic design background. I tried to search online, but was un able to find what shall I do.. may be because I did not know what graphic or illustrator terms to search for.. so a guidance of what shall i search for will also be appreciated..
What I need is for example to have this vector converted as this:
and not as this:
nice question and tricky solution
Add Used Color- This option will add all the selected color used in your artwork ti the swatch panel as a Global Color.
PS. this method will be valid for all fills that you have and make sure that you don't have strokes converted to path. the second point is you have to keep the black only.
after that you may want to tweak the artwork and you may need to add or remove black strokes from your artwork.
