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.

Anyway, I kept the best examples to present as tutorials at this blog about text effects. As the time goes, you will be able to see some realistic ice text effects there and also explanations about how to get them.
If you want to make some good ice text effects, just surf to this Text Generator Catalog and go to the "Ice Text Effects" section.

Now Picture to People project has 6 new powerful ice text effect generators.
Some of them are better to be used with thin font faces and others generate more interesting images with thick fonts. Usually all ice effects give even nicer results with black (or at least dark) backgrounds.
By choosing wisely the font face to apply, you can get amazing realistic ice texts. You can create several ice styles, and below I show you a frozen text example (click the image for a full size viewing).
These new text effects can be used by starting from the Text Generator Catalog, at the "Ice Text Effects" section.

I have released new font faces to be used with most Picture to People text effects. Now you can get new impressive graphic text effects using more than 200 new fonts. There already are more than 400 cool fonts to choose from.
You should be patient and wait for the complete page loading when using a text effect, because now there are many fonts faces to show in the list. Anyway, usually a bigger delay happens just the first time if your browser cache is working well. It's important because, for all Picture to People tools, you get wrong results if you don't wait for the complete page loading.
The tools already improved with these new font faces are:
- Liquid Text;
- All the more than 150 text generators available from the Text Generator Catalog;
- 3D Text;
- Smoke Text.
Furthermore, all new Picture to People text effects and tools will be already created offering more than 400 fonts to choose from.
