What is WiseImage
WiseImage is a basic hybrid drawing editor. Hybrid drawings consist of monochrome, grayscale, and color raster images overlaid with vector elements. Multiple raster images can be loaded and the number of raster images handled simultaneously is unlimited. WiseImage allows you to edit and update scanned maps, drawings, sketches, and other graphics. With WiseImage you can:
  • Color separation tool for separating color on various layers for easy raster editing
  • Clean up raster noise through a selection of filters including smoothing, thickening and thinning, speckle removal, and hole filling
  • Edit raster symbols with the raster object selection feature that enables you to select raster lines, arcs, and circles using tools similar to those for vector selection.
  • Create raster copies of vector objects and add them to the raster image.
All of these features are easy to use. WiseImage runs outside of AutoCAD and doesn't require a CAD manager to use the software.

Works with Color and Grayscale Raster Images
WiseImage allows you to crop color and grayscale raster images, change their resolution and scale, deskew them, and eliminate linear and non linear deformations using the calibration feature. A user can easily manage the colors of the image and create/edit LUT files in the Color Classifier or can perfectly operate with blueprints (scanned in grayscale mode) by a specific tool - Adaptive Binarization.

You can change brightness, contrast, hue and saturation, adjust the color gamut of image using a histogram, improve image quality and apply a set of color filters (Blur, Unsharp, Mask, Median, Gamma Correction). With WiseImage, you can draw on these images and create raster objects by rasterizing vector objects to color raster, and merge monochrome raster images with color ones.

New Tracing Capabilities
WiseImage has an advanced tracing function (semi-automatic, interactive raster to vector conversion) for color and grayscale images. In addition to simple graphic object tracing in WiseImage, you can now trace raster shapes that correspond to vecor templates. Select a raster shape and WiseImage will recognize it and match it to the appropriate vector object from the loaded symbol (block) library or a customized library designed by you to match your requirements.

Flexible User Interface
WiseImage gives users the ultimate flexibility by allowing them to create their working environment for the software by altering the layout or removing unnecessary commands and buttons. With WiseImage users can configure their own toolbars and menus. WiseImage runs under Windows 98, NT 4.0, 2000, ME, and XP. WiseImage runs outside of AutoCAD and doesn’t require a CAD manager to use the software.

Selection, Editing and Image Enhancement
WiseImage combines premium tools to process scanned drawing, satellite imagery, or other raster graphics for seamless and efficient CAD integration. Image cleanup, correction, calibration, bit-depth reduction, and raster-to-vector conversion with WiseImage eliminates repetitive and time-consuming manual procedures.

Intelligent Object Selection allows the selection of raster data by using AutoCAD-style tools – by picking inside rectangle or polygon, by crossing rectangle, polgon, polyline, etc. Raster objects (raster lines, arcs, and circles) have properties (line type, line width, etc) and precise geometry, which can be changed in the AutoCAD properties dialog. You can also modify the geometry of raster objects by their "grips". Object snapping for raster objects is consistent with the AutoCAD snap (that only works with vectors).

WiseImage for AutoCAD has a variety of tools for enhancement and correction of color, grayscale and monochrome raster images. There are color and monochrome filters and image restoration tools such as: color correction, deskewing, four-point correction, elimination of linear and non- linear image distortions, cropping, rotation, resizing, etc. You can correct an image using a specified set of commands with one click. User can easily manage the colors of the image and create/edit LUT files in the Color Classifier or can perfectly operate with blueprints (scanned in grayscale mode) by a specific tool-Adaptive Binarization.

Tracing Capabilities
To convert a raster symbol, line, arc, circle or outline to a vector object, a user only has to pick a point on the source raster object. The tracing mode can be set to retain, delete or smooth the original raster object. WiseImage can also recognize raster hatches and trace arbitrary raster curves by AutoCAD polylines. When tracing polylines, the program can automatically define the most probable trace direction. You can trace monochrome, color and grayscale images.

Automatic Raster-to-Vector Conversion (Pro Version)
When applying automatic vectorization, the user needs to set recognition parameters before starting the procedure. WiseImage for AutoCAD recognizes and converts to corresponding vector objects raster lines, arcs, circles, symbols, points, polylines, outlines and hatches. The program also recognizes raster line types, widths and dimension arrows. WiseImage for AutoCAD can process color, grayscale or black and white images.

The results of automatic vectorization often require further correction which can be done automatically with tools that will merge vector fragments, create orthogonal lines, and round objects widths to specified values. Resulting vector objects can be separated by weight, AutoCAD layers and color.

During automatic raster-to-vector conversion WiseImage for AutoCAD converts raster texts to AutoCAD text entities. It is also possible to convert raster texts to polylines or outlines. The program can be easily taught to recognize new text characters. You can also use external OCR modules.

Working with Symbols
WiseImage offers several advanced options for working with raster and vector data. One of them is the unique technology to select or separate raster objects into other layers, which is based on intelligent selections and a brand new selection engine including the new smart WiseObject (text, hatches, lines) selection. WiseImage has a built-in OCR feature that can recognize characters and numerals within the text block that the user is going to modify. Also, WiseImage supports external OCR modules.
