pixsaw 0.0.1

Cut a picture into pieces by cutting along pixel lines

Cuts an image up into multiple pieces by following pixel lines that contrast with targetted piece color. Inspired by scissors, but more flexible with the drawback of possibly losing some pixels in the process.

Installing

Requires:

Install with setup.py:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Running the pixsaw.py script will show some help. It basically needs a path to a directory to store the generated files, an image that shows where to cut, and the image that should be cut into pieces.

Example:

$ pixsaw --dir examples/small-puzzle --lines examples/small-puzzle-lines.png examples/320px-White_Spoon_Osteospermum.jpg

The puzzle lines:

The image:

https://github.com/jkenlooper/pixsaw/raw/master/examples/320px-White_Spoon_Osteospermum.jpg

Image from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:White_Spoon_Osteospermum.JPG

The output (combined into one file with glue to better show it):
