Conversion of jpeg files to ai file format

Generally speaking, it is not possible to directly convert jpeg to ai, i.e. transform bitmap pictures in JPEG format to Adobe Illustrator vector AI drawings. However, you can certainly import a JPEG picture (.jpg) file in Illustrator as an object and save the resulting graphics as .ai file. The only alternative would be to use some bitmap to vector converter before you use that in Illustrator.
