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.

Online text generators with improved language support

I'm glad to announce P2P now supports natively a lot of new languages (mostly Western ones), so its thousands of online text effect makers can be more useful to millions of people around the globe.

The fully supported languages are:
  • Afrikaans;
  • Albanian;
  • Basque;
  • Breton;
  • Catalan;
  • Corsican;
  • Danish;
  • English (UK and US);
  • Faroese;
  • Galician;
  • German;
  • Icelandic;
  • Indonesian;
  • Irish (new orthography);
  • Italian;
  • Latin (basic classical orthography);
  • Leonese;
  • Luxembourgish (basic classical orthography);
  • Malay;
  • Manx;
  • Norwegian (BokmÃ¥l and Nynorsk);
  • Occitan;
  • Portuguese;
  • Rhaeto-Romanic;
  • Scottish Gaelic;
  • Spanish;
  • Swahili;
  • Swedish;
  • Walloon.
The almost fully supported languages (missing few characters) are:
  • Catalan;
  • Czech;
  • Dutch;
  • Estonian;
  • Finnish;
  • French;
  • Hungarian;
  • Irish (traditional orthography);
  • Latin with macrons;
  • Maori;
  • Turkish;
  • Welsh.
Anyway, beware: no matter Picture to People text effect tools can understand the more uncommon chars of that languages, the softwares still depend on the font file data to know how to draw them. It means that if you choose a font that doesn't implement some letter of your text, that letter can be rendered as an empty space, a square or whatever the font data contains (even nothing).

If you have problems rendering more complex texts, you can choose the Arial or Tahoma fonts, because for sure they have all characters for the fully supported languages (and most for the partially supported ones). They are not artistic or special fonts, but at least you can create the text effect with the correct spelling.

Below I show an example of some new characters that can be drawn by using our Online Text Effect Editors.
