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 pencil sketches

I have just finished the first version of the sketch effect. Now you can transform a photo in a pencil sketch.
I intend to make this kind of effect in other flavors, like representing other drawing styles. I'm still researching about that.
Concerning the example above, for best results, I made a simple preprocessing of original photo before applying the effect:
- made it gray;
- improved its contrast.
As you can see, the result gives a nice sketch with no falsehood. The pencil strokes are really there.
