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.

Innovative carving effect

I was tired of the same old carving effects based on some variation of directional Laplacian, so I created a much more complex and realistic one. I called it "Photo Stone".

Some of its main features:

- suitable to photos;

- tries to be realistic without to be to much destructive concerning spacial information;

- tries to keep the original colors as much as possible.

You can make a comparison with the more traditional carving effects going to Picture to People Photo Effects and choosing "carved" in left side menu.

Below you can see a photo and a carved example. You can use this tool by yourself in Picture to People carving effect generator.
