Gertrudis for Dogwaffle
|::: Gertrudis Pro
Gertrudis Pro is
a program for the PC which lets you transform images into handmade
brushstrokes of the drawings can simulate watercolor, oil painting,
crayon, and a variety of other styles. You can also define your own
styles. As internally Gertrudis knows the path, color, width and style
of each brushstroke, the drawing can be rendered at the desired
resolution. So once the drawing is done, you generate the result to
the resolution that you want, achieving fine details in each
|::: How to use it
When you load an image into Gertrudis Pro it will show two panels: the
left one will show the original image and the other will show the
resulting, modified image. When you first start, the right panel
will show a blank white image. As the drawing tools are applied, the
resulting drawing will be appearing in the right panel.
You can 'brush' your strokes over the original to the left or directly
on the black to the right side.

:: Differences between the
and the Dogwaffle-Plugin
- the plugin version only sends and receives images
through the Dogwaffle connection. No file saving or importing; no
saving to PostScript. But you can send the resulting artwork to either
the main or the swap buffer.
- the plugin version is significantly lower cost.
- The standalone version can load images from many file formats and
save to JPEG, BMP and TIFF and also to PostScript format.
- The standalone edition can re-render and save at
different sizes.This is very important for desktop publishing because
there you need high resolution bitmaps. After creating your image on
the screen at screen resolution, you can have it re-rendered to a
higher resolution. This gives much more detail in the larger image than
if you had simply resized/resampled the prior bitmap.
- The standalone version has options to Load/Save
Gertrudis native format.
- The standalone version has an option to "Apply All"
current tool around the whole image selecting random seeds), this tool
saves time especially if you have a particulkar set of parameters which
you want to apply to many images, perhaps from an animation sequence.
Features from Gertrudis Pro 2.2:
- new shortcut key: F11 = Full Screen
- Navigator Window,
a new feature which lets you view the entire image. Also it is possible
to choose the work area by dragging the red rectangle in the Navigator
Window. This option is useful for large images.
- entering numeric values: All
parameters can be set using the keyboard. This change
is made because some users have said that it was difficult to choose
- Clipboard Support:
..... copies the current result to Clipboard.
... creates a new project based on the image in the clipboard.
