I haven't done this with CPP. But I have done it, with mixed results. You
erode the graphic. So search for that term. You also add various filters,
use layers, etc.

I don't use CPP, but I do remember a version of auto trace that came with
Corel suite. Then you would use Corel Draw with the line art.

Doesn't AI have auto trace? I thought it did...

I still use Corel Photo-Paint 8 here at my office. Yes, I know it's been
updated many times, but this one still works for the various line-art
images we use here and after all these years of using it, I've become
pretty familiar with the UI.

My question is if anyone knows a way to use CPP to modify line weights in
the various raster images I must work with? Going to Corel for help is not
the answer because this version of the program is so ancient. (I use Adobe
Illustrator for vector images; I wish I could convert my raster line-art to
vector without having to get yet more software.)
