please change the line 15 of
image_path = 'sample images/original images/21 original.png' # put the path of the image that you convert.
into the path of image file that you use. You should use a grayscale line image.
converted images will be output at
You can select light model by change the line 13, 14 of
model_path = "model/model_light.json" weight_path = "model/weight_light.hdf5"
