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.
Install with pip in editable mode for developing and use virtualenv to isolate python dependencies:
$ python3 -m venv . $ source ./bin/activate $ pip install -e .
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.
$ mkdir tmp-small-puzzle-example $ pixsaw --dir tmp-small-puzzle-example --lines examples/small-puzzle-lines.png examples/320px-White_Spoon_Osteospermum.jpg
