Convert SnagIt images to line art

Create a tool to convert a color image to line art (like a black and white drawing) to strip away the color leaving just the boundaries of the image.  For example, a colored square image would be converted to a square with the color removed leaving just the perimeter black lines.  This would save toner/ink when printing documents.

I think you're looking for more than Filters > Grayscale can do, but I am not exactly sure what it is.  Can you share something that has the effect you#re looking for please Greg?

It's not the best solution but depending what you a starting with it might suffice.

Apply the Monochrome filter and use the slider to adjust the amount applied.
Then use the Color Adjustment Filter and adjust the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma to taste.



Not perfect but the best way I have found you can do in Snagit.
