A full raster and hybrid solution which goes far beyond standard functions. Stunning raster object editing in direct mode, incl. raster text revisions,  accuracy paper format calibration, interactive line following (tracing), rasterization, and color reduction/separation are among a multitude of options of this truly professional image editing tool. For additional automatic raster-to-vector conversion and color vectorization see VPstudio mono or VPstudio.
