What is Picture to People ?
"Picture to People" (P2P) is a huge Computer Graphics project. It was started to create new softwares able to make 2D drawing, 3D rendering, vexel drawing, text effects, photo effects, image filtering and other complex Computer Graphics operations. It has been made from scratch, including its low level Computer Graphics libraries like Maccala. Nowadays, most final features produced for this project are released as free online tools available from its official website.

A powerful tool is for smart users
The subject about vectors and everything related is not over ...
Vetorial tools give a lot of power to create and edit curves and shapes. But all this power has a price. You must to know how to use it.
Look at the picture. It shows a curve (at right) and a set of related structural vectors. It's easy to see the bad conjugation: there are a lot of crossing and overlapping. Most of operations made using this vectors will produce weird, not useful or unexpected results.
Is it a reason to not invest in this kind of tool? I don't think so. The "good" user can achieve nice results, at least after some training.
