Picture to People Blog
Here you get informations, tips, tricks and all kind of informal news about Picture to People project researches, developments, evolutions, tools and uses.
If you wanna know what is going on concerning P2P, keep following this blog and reading its posts.
New tool for palette generation
Using Picture to People now you can create a complete palette from an input color. It's done by ranging a suitable value concerning the original color like saturation or brightness.
The palette can be used to find colors that make a good combination with your "pivot" color. It's very usefull, for example, to help deciding what colors to use together in software interfaces.
You can range one of the following color values to get a palette:
- Red Channel;
- Green Channel;
- Blue Channel;
You will find the Palette Generator in the Colors section of the left side main menu.
New tool to convert colors
Now Picture to People has a tool for color conversion among the more important color spaces.
The conversion is made automatically from a color model to all others, and you see all the results together. This way, it's possible to make interesting comparisons among the different color representations and learn a lot about these models.
Here you have a list of the supported color spaces:
- RGB (Red Green Blue);
- CMY (Ciano Magenta Yellow);
- HSB (Hue Saturation Brightness);
- HSV (Hue Saturation Value);
- HSI (Hue Saturation Intensity);
- HSL (Hue Saturation Lightness);
- YIQ (Luma In-phase Quadrature);
- YUV (Luma Chrominance(U) Chrominance(V));
- YCbCr 1:1:1 (Luma Blue-Luma Red-Luma);
- CIE 1931 (X Y Z).
By the way, there is a new section called "Colors" in the left side main menu. There you can find a link to the Color Converter, and there are another color tool in development.
The more used effects
Now, in the right side bar of Picture to People site, you can see a list of the more used photo effects and text effects.
Clicking any of the small images in the side bar, you go to a page with better examples of these top effects.
In top text effects page, in addition to the example images, you can find simple tips and explanations on a smart use of these effects.
Improving site organization
The original idea was publish just hard to get Computer Graphics effects. Since Picture to People site got online, users have been asking for "common" graphic utilities like bright, contrast, reduction, mirror and crop.
I already started to release this kind of functionality and much more will come. Anyway, there are several kind of graphic tools online and a certain restructuring was needed to make it clear. I want to keep separated different stuff.
Now the uncommon effects more suitable for photos are in the "Photo Effects" section and the simple utilities useful for any image are in the "Image Editor" section.
New year, new blog!
It's the first post of the new Picture to People project's blog.
I will keep the old blog for personal posting, but I'm glad now even the blog is under the same address (picturetopeople.org).
I will try to keep this blog as clean, soft and light as I can.
Be welcome and I hope you come back soon (and always) to know the news about P2P free tools.
