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.

Photo sketcher online

The first Picture to People sketch effect generator was published online some years ago, and it was a big success. A few time after its release, it started receiving thousands of page views per week.

In my opinion, at that time it brought several innovative and advanced features, and some of them are amazing until current days, as for example:
- you can produce fast wild sketches or smart clean drawings from your photos by using the same photo app;
- each drawing is made of thousands of unique pencil strokes drawn individually and selected based on information extracted from the input photo. In other words, it's a really procedural sketch effect, and each image produces a different drawing. It's not a pseudo-effect always based on the same texture or pattern;
- you can choose between drawing styles with thick strokes or delicate small strokes;
- the designed sketch effects really look like drawings made by human hands.

Despite the cool features just cited, it's also worthy to mention that you can choose the paper and pencil color, what can be very useful in many situations. You can even use a feature I invented that time called "smart strokes" that can, in many cases, design an improved drawing.

Below I show you a photo and a sketch effect designed by using our first Photo Sketch Creator.
