    Sketch Master is a program that converts photos to what looks like line drawings. There was some discussion in the past on how people make instructions for the models they develope. It looks like this program could be used in making line drawing type instructions from photos used for instructions. It says that PhotoShop can do the same thing, but this program supposedly makes it easier. Just thought I would bring it to the attention of the forum in case someone wants to try it out.:)

    Paint Shop Pro can do this also. Select "Effects -> Edge Effects -> Find All"

    I use paint.net (which is free) and it also has that feature (although I haven't much experience with the plugin yet).

    Good idea!:thumb:

    Wow, cool! I love paintdotnet! I used it to design my two cubes.
    I was not aware that it had this feature. I will have to check this out!
