Ken Poshedly said, "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. ....
- 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?
Do you have Corel Draw as well as Corel Photo Paint? If I remember
correctly, the later versions of Corel Draw have a Trace option that lets
you trace the outlines of an image to convert it to line art. It's been a
while since I did anything like that, however.
