Online photo to art processing with AlterDraw.

I have already made an overview of the AlterDraw capabilities and major automatic photo to art conversion parameters. Let’s consider what additional parameters can be set in order to get the best photo processing result.

Preservation of people

Photo styling without preservation of people on AlterDraw.

[People preservation] parameter tells the algorithm to save people during rendering. Styling with the maximum value of the parameter ensures that there is no styling of people at all, which looks a bit unnatural:

It is recommended to set intermediate value of the parameter, making slight styling of people and full styling of the background:
