    My company from time to time needs color images of products converted
    to line drawings for use in faxes, or B/W brochures, etc..

    The standard filters and methods available to us in house have
    produced unsatisfactory results.

    We're looking for someone who can provide these converted images two
    or three at a time on an ongoing basis at a reasonable price.

    Please respond via email to ( remove "NOSPAM"
    from this address ) and I will send you examples of what I'm looking
    for.

    Thank you.

    Hi Bob

    This sounds interesting

    What quality are you looking for?

    I expect it will be good quality line drawing (a photo etch?) black lines
    with lots of white inbetween?

    Bob, check out these three freeware utilities:

    http://delineate.sourceforge.net/
    http://potrace.sf.net/
    http://autotrace.sf.net/

    If your images are basic (e.g. box shapes, line art etc), these
    utils can do a fantastic job at converting them to vector format.

    PrintShop Pro has an excellent feature for doing that.

    I wouldn't hire it out; it's too easy to do; I do it all the time.

    I know why you did it, but it's very poor netiquette to crosspost to so many
    groups. It makes you look like a scammer/spammer. Which is a very good
    possibility.

    I sent you samples yesterday and asked you to send your samples as you said
    you would do in your message. I haven't received anything yet.

    Hi Bob

    Do you fancy posting a couple of samples on alt.binaries.photos.originals or
    some similar binaries group.

    I believe all you need do is attach them to your message in the usual way -
    let us know

    I'd like to have a go and I am sure there are quitre a few others eager and
    keen on the challenge

    Yeh you got to watch for theses 'deals' mostly they are our to collect
    e-mail addresses from interested parties that fit their customer
    profile, smart spamming. If something seems to good to be true it
    usually is.

    Shux - that answers my question straight away

    hey-ho

    It is a good job I didn't send my pics

    Possible waste of time, waste of clicks, waste of energy...

    Bob - what say you?

    Are you genuine in intent and upfront honest?
