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.

- grouped by themes (it helps you to find what you need);
- optional "aliasing remover" for poor inputs;
- amazing control over shadow;
- anti-aliased rendering;
- more than 450 fonts to choose from;

Make beautiful logos and icons with cool effects

Now Picture to People project offers a tool that was very requested by users last year: a software pack able to render effects for logos.

The idea is simple and easy: you upload a black and white image that represents the "stencil" of your logo. P2P software interprets this input and renders the effect of your choice.

I hope this new class of online softwares helps many people to get more visual appealing logos, icons symbols or whatever they need in an simple, easy and fast way.

Bellow you see some examples of these new tools in action (the first image is the input black and white stencil). You can see the complete list of logo effects at the Online Logo Editors page.

New classic chromed and golden text makers online

These days, I was developing new graphics functions to be use in Picture to People project.

Since a part of this job is done, I decided start creating new text effects taking advantage of these new features my graphic libraries provide.

After some work, I created some new golden text effects and also some more chrome text effects to increase the already giant number of online metallic text generators P2P offers. I focused on creating new effects having a very classic look.

Below you can see two new metallic text editors in action, a chrome text editor and a golden text editor respectively.

3D texts with transparent background and more

Our most famous and used online 3D text generator got even better. It received several upgrades without losing one of its most important features: ease to use.

Here I list the most important improvements:
- support to a lot of new languages (this upgrade applies to all P2P online text editors; have a look at my previous post);
- the "Font size" parameter offers the new "Very big" option;
- the number of 3D models more than doubled;
- you can save your results as images with anti-aliased transparent background (PNG files);

By using this 3D text editor you can create amazing real 3D texts in seconds with no worry about boring Math concepts. Below you can see an example of 3D text created by using the new transparent background feature (the second image shows the text already drawn over other image).
