Pin A Picture

Chrome extension to buy/sell cartoons images generated from images embedded in webpages

Description

Lots of colorful images catch our eyes as we browse the web and we get ideas of cartoon-ifying them, which can have applications in creating memes too! With my hack, user can easily select any image from any webpage and can optionally edit as per his whim and can then trade it as an NFT. To this end, I have created a Chrome extension to easily pin the image and mint an NFT of the same.

How it's made

Made a Chrome extension to : - pin images extracted from the webpages on IPFS using NFT Storage and edited to cartoonish versions - To mint NFTs which can be bought and sold. Editing images using libraries in Javascript was challenging. Tried to find a workaround to use OpenCV in Micropython to make it work in JavaScript.
