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.

Warping using mouse drag and drop - a better example



Warping with mouse can be used to create strange or funny images from photos or drawings. The functionality is intuitive, but depending on the result you want, you need to be patient and be good with mouse.

In fact, a most common use of it for professional design is like a auxiliary tool for photo retouching. Many times it can't be use lonely for this task because it's able to remove some kinds of regions only marginally.

First you see the original part of a face and after a warped version of the same image. I created the example above with some dozens of individual warping operations using my mouse. The tool configuration used was deep in path and very restrict in neighborhood.

Would you like to try it to see how you would deal with this kind of tool?

I agree.

Warping can make a cute child look like an E.T.

I made this example this way just to show how this tool can be powerful.
