PhotoPearls for linux
On my birthday a friend gave my the PhotoPearls set. The application which generates the images is only for Windows But I was able to install and run it with Wine. After a while I got stuck when it required a printer to print the generated image. Since i really wanted to try this i had no choice but to write my own application, gPearl. It runs on all platforms that support Python and the Python Imaging Library. More information about the project can be found on the project page.
I found this old blogpost but the links are dead. Is it possible to get a copy of the gPearl app?
I created a gist for the file and updated the link in the post. Hopefully the application still works :)
I wanted to be able to easily sum the number of beads needed of each color for multiple images, so I added that ability.
I put the code here: https://github.com/letharion/gPearls hope you don't mind. :)
There's no license at all on the current code, so I picked GPL-3, please let me know if you don't like that as the majority of the code obviously isn't mine. :)
