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.

Drawing liquid text

Now Picture to People has a powerful tool to draw text made of liquid.

This new feature is very configurable, so you can draw liquid text in several styles and simulating virtually any kind of liquid material. This development wouldn't be possible if I hadn't developed my own font engine.

In fact, some of my testers around the world have already used this tool to make other kinds of beautiful texts that don't look like liquid. Sometimes a tool has so many freedom degrees that you can get even unplanned results.

I will show several liquid text examples in next posts. Anyway, you can get your own liquid text right now using Picture to People site.

Font engine: example 5

Picture to People font engine is very evolved nowadays. It goes very beyond an usual font renderer.

Using my font libraries I can, for example, make uncommon vector based transformations over a text. The more important here is the transformed text keeps being an entity made of vectors.

Below you can see a simple text made using the canonical Arial font face. The second line shows the same text after a nontrivial vector based transformation.
