I need to annotate some pictures with dimension
lines showing angles.
Does anyone know if there is a Linux 2D CAD program that will let me
load a jpg image and draw dimension lines on it?
the advantage of cad is, that it is vactor based and thus scalable.
if you draw on a jpg then that advantage is lost, because the jpg won't
scale. it does make sense if you have a complex drawing and the jpg is a
Yeah, I know that, the reason I mentioned cad is that in general cad
programs have automatic dimensioning and in general drawing and
diagramming programs do not have this feature. I think Visio (Windows)
is does let you do it, but I don't have access to that. Kontour allows
you to import a picture and draw lines on it but it doesn't have
but if that is not the case then you might consider gimp to draw the
lines. gimp does have some vector plugins to draw lines and angles and
stuff, those should be good enough for this.
That sounds exactly like what I need, I'll have a look for them, thanks.
