"Take advantage of the fabulous features on PhotoArtista – Oil, including the fine-tuning of textured oil, brush size, stroke variation, canvas texture, and color tone. Get museum-worthy results without a lifetime of practice." - Appstore Facebook 09/15/2010

"PhotoArtistaHD – Oil is the best photo to painting app that I have seen. It really does a great job of making the painting look like your photo, but also like a real painting. Most photo to painting apps make it look all computerized, however, this app makes it look like your photo started as a painting taken out of a museum."

"Personally I find it a fabulous application ... and to be honest the best of their range !!!!!"

Ratings and Reviews

Love it and JixiPix support


This is one of my favourite go to apps along with their Artista Impresso - Aquarella & Portrait Painter. I am an artist and teacher and can truthfully say these are great and fun iOS apps for creative individuals on the go. JixiPix support is also by far one of the best - many thanks and keep up the good work!

Almost perfect!


It's a great concept to have an oil-painting app. But the rendering time is toooooo much!!!! Anyway, if u have plenty of time to wait for outcomes, then get this one.

Overall, great oil-painting app.!!!

Glad I waited till it was $0.99


Quite disappointed. It's not very user friendly and the sample pics don't really reflect what you really see when you actually use the app. Maybe if the developer included some tutorials or sample default settings it would be better. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what looks good...if there's anything that WILL look good. Like I said - so glad I waited till it was $0.99...though I still am annoyed I had to pay for this. Don't even want to give it a star but I had to. 
