    Please let me know if you are capable of converting a .PSD label to .AI. I will have jobs like this every so often and need someone who can do it quick and have it look the same.

    I need this done asap.

    It is important to note that the Adobe Photoshop .PSD format is a RASTER graphic format
    and an Adobe Illustrator .AI format is a VECTOR format. So, unless I am mistaken, I don't
    think you can properly convert PSD's to AI's and end up with a true vector image after the
    conversion. . . . Please correct me if I am wrong.

    You said it right.
    Even if you use any third party conversion tools and you succeed to convert, you will end up with a Adobe Illustrator File of no use.
    Just a .AI extension file. That's all. You will not be able to work on the illustrator file.

    Wiz agree with you. But the OPs requirement is to make an identical AI file with the PSD.
    I have a little doubt with highlighted statement. 90% of his PSD is text and shapes.
    anyway job completed as per the requirement.

    cheers

    Chamara did a great job converting this. Ive worked with a lot of people on here but this guy was very very reliable and also an extremely friendly guy. He did it very quickly with no flaws at all. I am impressed. This is one of those jobs where people normally half ass it. Nope. Not him. A+ work. Will definitely be hiring Chamara again.
