8.1. Photo to drawing

With this tool load an image file (png, jpg, ,..) and generate a SVG drawing. The generated drawing may look like an Impressionist painting.

The generation process follows four steps:

  • Reduce the size of the image

  • Choosing the color palette

  • Fusion of nearby pixels

  • Extraction of contours with filtering and smoothing vertices.
