Price, image filtering and manipulation using GNUstep.

PRICE can open several image file formats and apply high-quality filters and other enhancements.

PstoEdit PostScript and PDF files to editable vector graphics converter.

Pstoedit translates PostScript and PDF graphics into other vector formats.

Implementing support for other formats should be very easy. The architecture of pstoedit consists of a PostScript frontend which needs to call a PostScript interpreter like Ghostscript and the individual backends which are pugged into a kind of framework.

This framework can be used independently from the PostScript frontend from any other program. The framework provides a uniform interface to all different backends. You need a C++ compiler to compile and GhostScript to run pstoedit. pstoedit should run on all Un*x like systems (including cygwin) and has also been ported to OS/2, Windows 9x/NT/2K/XP/Vista, and RiscOS.
