Pam used to use Adobe Streamline to scan line drawings, but Leo says it's been discontinued. What are her alternatives? Leo says that Adobe put that feature into Adobe Illustrator, now called Image Trace. Customers have to subscribe to Creative Cloud to get it, and that has a monthly fee. Other options include CorelDRAW and Xara Extreme. Finally, a good open source free option is INKSCAPE.
