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.

Artistic effects for photography

As promised, I'm posting here something not so "vector based".

I dedicated a good time years ago to create artistic effects, some more suitable for photos, some better for text.

My intention is give to P2P a large (really large) menu of effects/filters. Many of them are the classical effects that all professional raster CG software has, but all my effects will be there too.

The figure above shows one of my effects that try to transform a photo in a image that looks like "drawed or painted by human hands". The thumbnail inside shows the original photo modified by the math model I created.
