Creating a program that can take drawn images and create clean lines

Posted 20 October 2017 - 09:26 PM

So I have gotten a request from a friend to make an add on like for photoshop that will take his images that he has drawn and make the lines cleaner. I do not know where to start and was looking for some leads as to what is needed to achieve this.

Since there are already programs out there that do this... Is it worth paying you to make a custom one? Is there some custom need he has?

I agree. If it already exists, why reinvent the wheel unless you can't afford to pay PhotoShop prices just to get access to the plugin.

Anyway, if you want to roll your own, start by cracking open an image processing book or two.

I think he may have found some but they are not great enough for what he is looking for. He wants the clean lines like on the Angry Beavers logo...like some cartoons have for their icons.

It's hard to be sure without seeing the original image. Sometimes even a simple convolution with an appropriate kernel/filter will do: https://en.wikipedia...age_processing)

If the images are basically grayscale, maybe thresholding would help: https://en.wikipedia...age_processing) . . . or perhaps some form of normalization: https://en.wikipedia...age_processing)
