Engrave Vertically filter

Supported Platforms: Windows

Version: ?
Price: Freeware

Engrave Vertically does just what the name implies: It engraves any picture in black and white with vertical lines. For printing leaflets, etc., this is wonderful, as you can decrease the color depth to 1 bit and save about 20:1 on the file size! The resulting file will also print well, even on an old dot-matrix printer, and photocopy equally well.

Amazing freeware is part of the charm of the internet. Stock up while you can!
