Dear All:

I am new to Processing and the programming environment. I have been reading a LOT (bought two books on this), and I have been devouring all of the tutorials I can find.

I am in the processing of becoming more adept at the language, as I would like to teach it to my students. So far, the going is slow but steady. I have written two semi-simple sketches, and I am hungry for much more!

One of the things I am trying to find, to no avail, is how to start out an image tracing sketch. Meaning, I would like to load a bitmap pic (which I have found out how to do), but then I would like to define a few functions that would use the data in the bitmap and "sketch" it - if that makes sense.

I am going to hazard a guess and say there is a library that I must use, I just don't know which.

I am sure I will have many more questions in the future. Thank you all for such a great community!
