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.

Pencil drawing in flavors

Now the pencil drawing effect has a new flavor. This new one makes a lot of extra calculations to don't let strokes to destroy mid-tone regions and also to show representative lines in a better way.

The images show an example where using this "smarter" pencil drawer can be interesting (second image has the old effect and third has the new one). Anyway, it's not always the best choice. Images with very high values in frequency domain usually don't give a very beautiful result with this new option.
