Uses simulated annealing to generate polygonized versions of images.

branch: master

The Image Evolver version 3.3


Requires the standard Qt Libraries and g++

run in the directory:


Run with ./ImageEvovler or ImageEvolver.exe

Load an image, run, and watch.

This uses a genetic algorithm, so it might take a bit to get something recognizable, and even longer to get something cool. Please be patient!

Check the "Save Incrementally" box to save an image every so often to make a spiffy slideshow.

Stopping no longer has a short delay! Yay!
