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.

New special fonts for professional text effects

I have released a new package with non-regular beautiful fonts to be used with most of Picture to People text effects.

Most new fonts are complex and/or weird, so they can't be properly used with all effects, but for sure every single font is very useful in many cases to create new amazing text effects. As probably you know, many times the font face format and style can help to get different results from the ones you could make with a common font.

Now almost all text effect renderers and generators have more than 450 fonts in the interface list for your choice. Picture to People already has hundreds of professional text effects, so you have many thousands of possibilities when creating your own psychedelic or realistic text effect.

Below I show some text samples created by using some new fonts available for Picture to People text effects. I will show some more new exciting fonts in a next post.

Graffiti my name

The Graffiti Text Effect software was changed to have much more useful default parameters.

Now, if you generate a graffiti text without changing any interface item, you get a much more colorful and psychedelic result like this one.

With this new configuration, you can graffiti your name in a very special way without facing many parameters to set. Just type the text you want and select a nice background where your graffiti will be painted (or draw the graffiti text with no background at all by unchecking the "Draw graffiti on background image" option).

Create a graffiti text right now here:

Text effects tutorials (3)

That's the list of texts I taught how to create last month at the Text Effect Tutorials blog. As usual, I tried to balance among several kind of effects that can be used in very different situations:

- a lava text effect;
- a shiny ice text effect that can be used with any back color;
- a text made of vegetables;
- a raw golden text effect;

And below you can see the images you get if you follow these tutorials:

Some users have been asking for some specific text effect tutorials. Maybe I can publish some of them this month.
