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.

Picture to People project future

Picture to People project is growing fast in number of users and number of image effects generated per day. The more the project grows, the more money is needed to keep it online satisfactorily.

I have no more doubt that I need to make something now, or, in a near future, the project will not be able to bear so many load, so most users will get unsatisfied.

Since I can't spend more of my own money with Picture to People, I decided to make two main things to collect more financial resources for the project:
1) properly monetize the site with a good number of ads;
2) ask for users donations.

According to my experience, ads don't make a big money, unless you have thousands of people clicking them, what usually is hard to get. Maybe because the ad networks I already tried don't offer really relevant products/services to my users.

That said, I really need to get donations for P2P. I'm planning a way to reward donators for their money. Probably I would need to create a "special" or "premium" area with exclusive design services. This area would be accessible just for donators. I'm still thinking about it.

By the way, I'm trying to finish the research of a new astonishing sketch photo effect generator that is even better than the very famous and professional sketch effects Picture to People already offers. Maybe I will keep it apart to be used by donators.
