Version: 1.27Software to easily convert photos into either photo-realistic or oil-painting-like cartoons.
Operating System: Windows
The cartoonization process is preceeded by steps where the part of the image to be cartoonized is choosen and where color enhancing filters (for instance, contrast and brightnance ones) can be applied to it.
Cartoons are created as the result of joining two images together, the background and the foreground ones, which creation is controlled by the user.
The process in which the background image is created gives it a more or less photo-realistic aspect.
The process in which the foreground image is created generates a black and white mask, which is created in accordance with the edges that are found on the original image, being this mask what gives the cartoon its cartoon aspect.
Opens images of type bmp, jpeg, png, and tiff, whether or not they are embedded in a data uri (a.k.a. data uri scheme or datauri scheme).
The standard (a.k.a. Lite) version of the program saves images as either 24bpp or 32bpp; the professional (a.k.a.
Pro) version of the program counts the colors of the image in order to choose what is the format that can be used (1bpp, 4bpp, 8bpp, 24bpp, or 32bpp) to generate the smallest file size without loss of quality.
Last but not least, the program has been created to be portable, thus, it does not require any installation at all and, as so, can be executed from a pen-drive.
