Transforms bitmaps into vector graphics
potrace is a Peter Selinger’s GPLed utility for tracing bitmaps - converting them into smooth, scalable images.
It accepts as input a bitmap B/W images PBM, PGM, PPM and BMP formats, and returns encapsulated PostScript EPS as the default output. Other output format are available PS, SVG, Xfig, PGM, PDF and experimental GimpPath.
You can create scalable images from scans, such as logos, hand taken notes, etc. The resulting smooth images can then be rendered at any resolution.
