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.

How to create hatched drawings from photos

Have you ever tried our engraved photo drawing app that was released recently?

By using it, you can design very beautiful hatched drawings from photos. If you spend some time learning how the several configuration elements work, you can produce very artistic sketch drawings from most kinds of photos, even the most difficult to deal with.

As a special tip, beware this sketch effect app works better with input images that have a relative smooth look. Images that have many regions with high frequency textures can get overdrawn. To minimize this problem, you can choose the "Soft" drawing style and maybe apply a dark or pastel color improvement.

Below I show you a portrait transformed into a hatched drawing by using Picture to People Hatched Drawing Photo Editor.

Neon light photo effect creator online

Despite P2P already had some cool light photo effects including the Rainbow Neon Light Photo Effect, I created a more complex, delicate and detailed one. It's online and ready to use.

This photo light effect is easier to use and can preserve better the original colors and shapes from input image.

By using this new Neon Light Photo Effect Editor you can create beautiful shiny light drawings from your portraits and landscapes. It was really hard to create an algorithm able to produce a good balance between the source preservation and the light glow, but I think the result was worthy.

Below you can see a photo from a wolf and a cool glow photo effect designed by using that light effect app.

New photo cartoon effect generator

Now Picture to People site offers a new cool cartoon generator software. Despite its internal complexity, it offer a simple and easy to use interface to let you create amazing cartoons form your photos.

Recently I have researched a new color reduction model and a new region simplification algorithm. By using these new graphic tools, I have created a new cool cartoon photo effect.

I have also used a new contour and outline generation algorithm. It can produce beautiful, high fidelity contours with several mixed detail levels and a very important new feature: colorful lines. Since this algorithm doesn't produce just black contours as the previous ones I had developed, it helps to create really fresh new cartoon styles.

Below I show you a cartoon drawing created by using this new Cartoon Photo Editor.
