Color reducing

   This functionality is available only in the Raster module.

This section describes the procedures for producing monochrome raster images (raster layers) from color and grayscale images.

The original image is a raster file obtained as a result of a color or grayscale scan. The binarization operation allows you to create monochrome raster images containing a black-and-white representation of objects in a color image. For example, objects of different colors (level lines, roads, rivers, etc.) can be sequentially extracted from one color image of a scanned map and placed on separate monochrome layers. This separation method allows you to place objects on one monochrome layer that correspond to one or more different colors in the original image.

Another way to get monochrome images from color ones is color layering. The program can convert a color image to a set of monochrome raster layers. At the same time, it is guaranteed that the black and white representation of all pixels of the original image will fall on this or that layer.
