Windows 7: Using an image editor

Using an image editor

Because of a hobby of mine which is woodburning (pyrography), it would be helpful for me if I could convert a picture to a line drawing. I believe that it can be accomplished with an image editor, but I have no idea how. I installed the image editor Irfanview. Does anyone know if it can be done with Irfanview and if so, is there a simple way to do it?
Thanks, Frank

Hello Frank. Irfanview, while a great program, does not have that feature. Have a look at these free programs and see if one suit your needs
