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.

Sketch effect

Some people have been asking me about an effect for transforming photos in sketches.

They told me there are several tutorials in the Internet about that: you combine some traditional filters to get something like a pencil sketch, but the results are poor. This bad quality is not by losing information, but because the result does NOT really look like a sketch made by human hands.

I checked it out around the Internet and could see they have some reason.

This way, I decided it's worthy to prepare a final effect to transform photos in sketches.

More about that in some days.
