paintr

paintr (nee Artomator)
Inspired by autodrawn and in response to Harold Cohen’s “Off The Shelf“.
Colour handling from Cohen’s “Colouring Without Seeing“.
I’m going to do this in PHP.

The procedure is:
Get colour palette from colr.
Expand colour name tags using wordnet.
Find matching image at flickr.
Posterise and autotrace image to SVG (autotrace).
Sort colours by brightness.
Choose light-to-dark or dark-to-light.
Add background colour box?
Colour image.
Serve as SVG.
Add log of concept expansion and matching as text (colour names, tags, wordnet expansion, flickr search string, matches, choice)
