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.

Faster online sketch effects for photos

I keep doing a hard work concerning the optimization of low level Picture to People libraries.

I'm a little worried about a bad collateral effect coming from these improvements: a lot of source codes become much harder to understand and maintain. Anyway, I hope the speed increase pays off this undesirable consequence.

More photo effects already got faster, including the sketch photo effects and other related ones. Bellow you can see a photo and a related detailed pencil drawing produced online. It was created by using the Realistic Pencil Sketch Photo Effect and now this one can be generated 10% faster after the optimizations I already made.
