LiveArt uses couple of 3rd party software to manipulate and convert designs and uploaded images. Our sample integrations contain reference to the following applications:
- ImageMagick - a powerful command line tool to manipulate and convert images;
- Inkscape - a professional vector graphic editor, which also features a command-line mode for exporting and converting vector formats including PDF, EPS and SVG;
- Potrace - though rarely used, this great open source tool allows you to autotrace raster graphics into vectors, thus making it of better quality that does not depend on DPI requirement;
- PrinceXML – a professional utility that does good job in exporting HTML and SVG into printable PDF including spot colors matching.
