Do you have AutoCAD, SolidWorks, or ProE? If I remember right, most of those can do it.

Subject: photos to line art conversions

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?
