Very simple to use

Great watercolor app. Very realistic. I’d love to see options to create more painterly expression, but for an automated scheme, well done as a very realistic basic water color painting app.

Nice but small

The effects look nice, but the maximum size is only 3584 pixels, which is too small for what I want to print.

Colossal waste of money
Logical conclusion ?

Keep walking, don’t stop here. After trying several types of pictures, results were the same. Blobs of color on all choices with no definition. There are far better filters out there at way less the price.

I Love This App

As an artist this app helps me create my best work in a more interesting way. I highly recommend it.


I love, love, love this app! Once I get started playing with photos, I’m at it for HOURS! I’m going to print some photos out for framed gifts!! I have turned so many people onto your wonderful app!

What a great teaching tool!

I love to watercolor, especially portraits, but realistic skin tones had me stumped until I found your app. It shows me exactly what I need to do and the results are awesome! Thank you!

Threshold control
the protoart

Really great app but I wish there was a bit more control of the highlights and shadow and threshold. The algorithm is great but has the potential to be amazing

no instructions?

can’t we get some basic instructions? what is the little picture for thats to the lower right of the larger image? how do i get that effect? when i click on it, it totally changes. why no instructions?!

Love this

Love this app. Really cool and fun to use and transform photos I have taken into artwork I could only have dreamt of painting. Thank you. So worth it!

This app makes your photo look like a 3 year old watercolor painting. Total junk app. Wasted $5
