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. This blog talks about Computer Graphics, mainly concerning Picture to People development.

Shapes and paths

Now I can interpret an arbitrary curve like a path. So I can apply arbitrary shapes to curves.

Paths can be used like a vector based reference for position only (left) or really like a directional field (right).

A little different enjoy

I will spend a small time involved in another free project: a small library in C++ for plotting scientific charts. The emphasis is about shortness, lightweight, portability and usability in web servers.

I hope I will be back to P2P project soon.

Going forward

All major known bugs of my vector based library are out.

I already can use a set of pixels like a "border" of an arbitrary vector based curve.

Now I intend to make some functionalities joining shapes and paths.
