We have need to convert various photos (jpg format) to line art for our operator manuals (heavy construction equipment). This will be ongoing and is not a set number of images.
I have Corel PhotoPaint Version 8.0 on my (Windows XP) platform, but haven't found anything in it that can accomplish this.
I know this can be done in Adobe Photoshop, but management here won't spring money for almost anything, although we did locate an individual in Thailand who charges $5 per image and does very nice work.

So the questions are:

- Is there an undocumented method to convert photos to line art using Corel PhotoPaint Version 8.0?

- Is there a free software package that can do this if PhotoPaint won't do it and I can't get the bucks to the use the Thailand source?
