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.

I'm developing my solution for "bitmap to vector" transformations.

The bigger challenge is a good conjugation between two conflicting goals:
1) smooth and beautiful results;
2) avoiding lost of significant details.

It's not easy to find a common point: for some images a kind of pattern can be just noise and for others it can be part of important details.

I'm considering some possible solutions dealing with topology and entropy.

Picture shows some initial tests. Typographical use is the canonical example, but of course the tool is generic.
