comment Command line interface-based way to desaturate and posterize an image?
@Pekka I decided that the term 'command-line' is GUI-centric. After all, would you go around saying 'graphical user interface'? So with the CLI. If I can say GUI, I should be able to say CLI.

comment Command line interface-based way to desaturate and posterize an image?
@DA01 I tagged it GIMP because, yes, I am using the GIMP. That doesn't mean that half of the algorithms on windows-based programs aren't roughly equivalent, or that the names matter more than the processes at work. I ended up choosing ImageMagick for the job. See? The same classes of visual transformations is involved. Perhaps a community wiki page of system-agnostic graphic design terms is needed, as in this other stack-exchange site rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/5475/…

Though I love the idea of LISP, I can never quite read it well enough to write anything in it... blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=84073&page=1 was more handy, because it talks about Python-based GIMP batch scripting... Still haven't cracked this problem though.

@DA01, I'm not asking for an application-specific method. Unfortunately the graphics design community does not seem to have vocabulary that crosses the boundaries drawn by operating systems.

+1 for linking to the discussion about desaturation. I already knew how to do it this way and found it unsatisfactory since ImageMagick doesn't give you as many options for desaturation as GIMP does. Otherwise the -posterize parameter does exactly what I need. So I may end up doing it by using one big script that makes a call to both GIMP and ImageMagick.

comment What is a good CLI-based bitmap tracing method?
@e100 It's a matter of clicking a tab and choosing a brightness cutoff. I'm not talking about tracing it using a tablet.
