Vector stuff


Recommended Posts

Before I even start, yes I used the PDN search engine!

Anyway, I was wondering if someone could create a Vector art plugin or something. I know PDN doesn't do vector art, but what if you we could replicate it and yet still be a graphics editor. I've seen a tut for this but for all my photos, the images look awful - very awful for some when i use this tut.

Download Inkscape. It's actually made for that.

Making a plugin for PdN to do vector images would basically be like programming a new program. Why not use one that's made for it?

Besides, Inkscape is free. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Vector images are saved as a series of lines and curves. The other option - Raster images - are saved as a series of pixels. :-)

What about a plug - in that just makes it look like a vector image although it still is a pixel image if you know what i mean

That's what seam carving is :)

No, that is not what seam carving is. Seam carving is that content-aware image resize program which was discussed a few months ago; you know, the one where we begged for a plugin.

EDIT: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seam_carving.

For the task you ask, there is no definitive plugin which can do that, however, a few techniques can get you close. I'd elaborate more, but I'm short on time, I just answered to clear up that slight misinformation ;).

That's what my Ink Sketch plugin does. And, since it is built-in to Paint.NET, you already have what you're looking for. :D

It does a good job but it still looks a bit .. . (pencilish)

The ink sketch and the surface blur should do a good job approximating a vector image, but as I said before, there's no way to make it look exactly correct.
