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.

Better text logo generators online for you

Picture to People offers the famous Online Text Effect Generators, the number one answer from google search for "online text effects" in most countries (among other expressions). It's one of our first tools to get notorious in internet.

Despite during these years I have improved some text effects and created many new text logo makers to the collection, the base of this software remained the same.

P2P users already designed millions of text logos by using this application, but recently I could take some time to satisfy a desire of many: I finally changed this software to produce text logos with transparent background, of course sustaining our overall high quality level.

As a plus, now most of these text effects also have a highly configurable shadow and can even have their colors changed to design a different resulting effect. These new features create a complete new plethora of design possibilities, turning this text logo effect application even more useful. The sample below, for example, could not be created like this without these new functionalities.

Recent annoying disaster

This post is to inform Picture to People users about the catastrophic events of yesterday.

Unfortunately we are passing through an unplanned outage because of a severe crash on our dedicated server.

We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to say we have a backup and I'm working day and night to restore our online graphic services as soon as possible.

I really hope P2P site will not stay down much longer. Thanks for your understanding.

Bevel text effect online

Recently I have published a new text effect generator able to produce realistic bevel effects. By using this bevel text maker, it's possible to create high quality beveled logos in a few seconds.

This bevel text generator application uses a completely new text rendering engine. This algorithm brought fresh new features to the already huge list of P2P text effects, like for example:
- very fast rendering, allowing bigger output sizes;
- easy illumination positioning;
- ability to render "3D correct" beveled surfaces, including smooth bevel surfaces by using a heuristic;
- several rendering styles that emulate different physical surface properties.

That powerful bevel effect maker offers a full plethora of graphic possibilities to design a top beveled logo easily as never before. To create metallic bevel text online, use the Top Metallic Bevel Text Effect Generator for free.

To inspire you to produce your own bevel text effects, below I show an armor text effect I created by using this new graphic software. I have chosen a damaged metallic material and I used a strong rendering style. This way, I could design an interesting logo made of a metal that looks dilapidated but yet very shiny.
