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.

Torn paper text logo generator online

Since a small time ago, Picture to People site offers an text generator to make torn paper text effects. We already had several paper logo generators online, like for example: 3D paper text logos, burning paper text logos and folded paper text effects, and now there is even one more.

This Torn Paper Text Effect Creator costed me some very hard work, because it was difficult to implement a generic procedural way to render the torn paper borders needed to make the effect realistic. The solution I found was a kind of "stacked fractal".

There also is the option of producing text effects with transparent background. In this case, the paper effect creator returns a graphic as a semi-transparent PNG image file. See below a sample of paper text logo designed by using this new online logo generator app.

Turn photo into sketch online

After a lot of research, I could finally develop a new sketch photo effect editor. It brought to Picture to People project a completely new level of non-realistic drawing photo editor.

With this photo sketch generator, each drawing is made of thousands of even millions of individual strokes, but they are chosen and rendered in much more intelligent and coherent ways, making possible a higher preservation of original fine details.

Moreover, this photo sketch algorithm has several important freedom degrees, so its interface has a lot of useful and interesting design parameters. This can help users to get artistic styles like made by using pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, crayon, chalk, etc.

As a bonus feature, I added options to customize background and strokes colors, what helps to increase the plethora of available design effects.

By using this photo sketch maker, it's possible to produce, in a few seconds, pencil drawings that look carefully drawn by talented artists. Below you see a drawing created with this professional Photo to Pencil Sketch Converter Online.
