Triangulate your images with Triangula

As I am a photo enthusiast I’m always excited to find new tools, to give images a unique look. Today I stumbled over Triangula. Ever seen one of those cool backgrounds, where a picture has been broken up into lots of little triangles?

In trigonometry and elementary geometry, the division of a surface into triangles is called a triangular grid, triangular mesh or triangulation.

Whoever RH12503 (Ryan H??) is, he did an amazing job on creating this little Go program, including a pleasing UI, do convert images into those equivalents.

These images are absolute great for background images in websites, in order to make the details less recognisable.

There is a web version of Triangula, but the desktop version (including a console version) is much faster. Best feature is the ability not only to save the generated images as PNG, but also as SVG!
