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.

Transforming photos in cartoons

After very hard days (including this last weekend), I finally created and implemented the math models concerning my new 1-click final effect.

Now I can transform photos in "cartoon style" drawings.

Next two hard tasks about that:
1) optimize model and algorithms: it takes about 15 minutes to cartoonize a 1000 x 1000 picture;
2) give this effect some interesting configuration freedom.

Anyway, I believe the hardest part I have already made.

The pictures show a photo and a its cartoon drawing.
