More on Crayon

I spent some time yesterday giving the whole project a look and whether or not it achieves its goals. What I think is that although it finally traces the pictures into SVGs yet it is not easy to use. There’s tons of usability work that needs to get done over there, and more help and samples need to be there as well to direct the users on how to use it.

The simplest way is to record screencasts for myself working. So, I added a screencast, you can watch it here . There’s a link to the same screencast from the help/faq page.

    Where can we wind this Crayon software? Is it freeware? Please always provide links for those who have no idea what software are you talking about. Or could you please make a blog about How-to-vectorize images or convert JPG illustrations to vector? Then we could donate some to your site for public upload ;-) THX

    Bob, Crayon is an online tool. To vectorize an image either upload the image, or click on “run it” on the main page (about at the middle). If you upload the image a link will show over it that says “vectorize”. If you click run it, then you need to open the image from your local harddrive just like in any application.

    There is a tutorial video. You can watch it here:
