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 2

As I told before, nowadays everything can be made in Computer Graphics, but regarding three questions: who? how long? how much?

It's worthy to make things easier for non professional designers. This way, they can achieve good, fast and free (or at least cheap) results.

Despite I don't have a ready software to distribute, nowadays people have been asking me for working on demand. Sometimes people look for some image or effect they don't know how to do by themselves or they would take a lot of time to get. It's fun, cause if I don't have a ready to use effect, I can create and develop it.

Recently, a non professional designer have asked me about a photo effect for "black & white newspaper press" like result. So, I made it.

He sent me by email the pictures he would like to transform. I processed them and gave back to him. As payment, I got just a nice review in his site.

It was really fun. It's very good when people can help each other without involving cash.

The picture above shows an example of the effect I'm talking about. Click inside the image to enlarge and see how it really is.
