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.

Creating fresh paint effects for photos

I have been creating a totally new and very impressive painting engine based on samples. It was a very old dream and already took me many months of research and hard work.

Now the engine is in a advanced stage, I'm developing different painting tools to Picture to People. Based on photos (the samples), these tools will generate impressive portraits and so.

Unfortunately, there are many sub-projects ongoing and I'm not sure if I will be able to finish these new softwares this year yet.

Anyway, I will put some samples here when the softwares are in alpha or beta level. Also wait for the news about their publishing in next posts. Reading this blog you will be the first to know about that.
