Process documentation

In chronological order:

  • Cropping original Matlab PNGs, so that no border around the image is left (using Gimp Autocrop or manullay adjusting the canvas size in cases where that didn't work).
  • Using Inkscape as a mean to transform the PNG into SVG (via "Path > Trace Bitmap", using the "Colors" mode, 100 scans, no smoothing, stack scans enabled and no background removal).
  • Scaling those SVGs into a common format (DIN A3 proportions). See the resizesvgs command in the Makefile.

And then optionally:

  • Transforming those SVGs back into a PNG. See the command renderpngs in the Makefile.
