Looks like a smudged picture

So far not happy with app! Every picture I have tried looks like the main colors set and than smudged. Some faces are just smudge of color, some smiles had smudged teeth so they looked missing. I’ll need to play with it some more, maybe I’m missing something?

Awesome App

LOVE this APP.I am no artist but I love watercolors. It is amazing how it turns any photo into a watercolor. I first tried it on an old photo of my beloved cat.I was thrilled with the result. I will print it and frame it. It is a great tribute to our little girl Velcro...immortalized forever. -^-.-.-^-

Your results may vary

My results were nowhere near as food as the samples. White splotches everywhere. I tried a half-dozen photos. Disappointed.


This is a gorgeous app. If you've ever water colored (or even if you haven't) Waterlogged adds very naturalistic looking water based painting to your imagery, with a variety of admirable paper effects. And key: Waterlogged also outputs high resolution imagery (rare in iOS art apps) that is print-worthy, so you don't end up with an image that will only look good on a tiny screen. Highly recommend.

Interesting results

This app makes great shots look like they were painted in a realistic way. I like it a lot. The effects use to take awhile to render hit this new update speeds it up significantly. Glad they are continuing to update it. Runs very good on my iPhone XS Max much better than my previous iPhone 7 Plus.

Aunty Cool

Yes, it works good.

Really great!

Wish there was a manual/advanced mode where you can access/modify all the parameters

Love, love, love this app!!

Twelve thumbs up and counting. Thank you

Love it... But-

i Love Waterlogue, but i wish that many of the filters would be less blotchy around the edges, and there was a way to fine tune the white gaps in many of the styles, along with an even finer ( Super Jumbo ) resolution !
