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.

Matching colors for compositions

Many users don't know, but Picture to People has an old tool that can be very useful in several types of situations.

Sometimes it can be a little hard to choose the right colors to put together to get a nice composition. It could happen, for example, when selecting the right colors to compose the interface of a site or blog.

In cases like that one, you could like to use our Palette Generator with Matching Colors. It offers several useful ways to get colors that match according to relevant criterias.

You can, for example, based on a pivot color, create a palette with colors having the same luminance, but with different hues. The colors from this generated palette are more likely to be nicely mixed with the pivot one.

Try the Online Smart Palette Generator now. By the way, the more colors you intend to mix, the more useful this P2P assistant can be, helping to make your task easier.

New top ice text effect generators

I have just published four new top class ice text effects. They are in our most famous and used set of text effect generators: Online Text Effects.

Now this catalog has ten high quality ice text effects. Having so many different styles to choose from, I'm very confident you can find an ice effect suitable to your needs.

Below I show you two great examples created by using these new ice text renderers (click the image to see it in real size). Even many of our beta testers got impressed how particularly this white ice effect can create very realistic results.

There is a shortcut to see directly the ice effects with no need to scroll the page with more than 230 different effect creators. You can go directly to the list of Ice Text Effects.

Painting photos on canvas

I'm working hard to bring a new unpublished feature to Picture to People.

If everything goes right, my new realistic painting photo effect will be able to paint on several kinds of canvas.

The user will be able to choose divers kinds of canvas to be used as media and also there will be several interesting configuration options. This will bring countless possibilities to create new styles of artistic pieces based on photos.

Below I show you two experimental examples of painting on canvas I have created recently.

New realistic photo painting effect

In last two years, I have researched a lot about artistic photo effects that imitate sketch, drawing and painting like made by human hands.

Since I started that efforts, I have made several amazing discoveries that turned possible top class paint effects like these ones:
Now, after a long experience creating and implementing such algorithms, I'm using the knowledge I acquired to create a new impressive photo into painting converter. I hope it can achieve a new degree of fidelity to the original picture.

Despite it's still under development, below I show you an example of how this new paint renderer can produce amazingly detailed pieces of art, keeping the original shapes and colors.
