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 grayscale effect generator

I have just released a new utility. It can transform any image you want into grayscale and it goes beyond the trivial filter you see everywhere.

This grayscale photo effect generator has useful features like:
- accepts JPG, GIF and PNG images;
- has several ways to transform the original colors into gray tones;
- offers great control of number of gray levels (you can even create black and white images);
- let you choose the quality level of JPG outputs;
- preserves alpha information (transparency) for GIF and PNG images.

Here you see some examples changing the grayscale criterion and number of gray tones:

You can use this new P2P utility at the Grayscale Image Generator page. I didn't announced it in the middle column of the main page, but there is a menu item to this tool in the "Utilities" section of the left side menu.
