PSW Option 1.1
Scanning - Auto Color Reduce
Currently due to the amazing number of colors that are scanned into an
image file (either black and white or color) the auto trace function may not
be able to read all the colors and cannot automatically fill with stitches.
With Auto Color Reduce the color blocks are changed to one color so Auto
Trace will work more effectively. Although this is not specifically a photo
program and is not guaranteed to work with all photos, it does make
scanning some photos and auto tracing possible.
Place an image in the scanner and click on scan.
Close the scanner dialog box.
Go to Files: INvain Scanner.
