✭Free for limited time to celebrate release of our newest app: HDR Art.
Automatically turn your photos into very authentic looking paintings. The result from this highly addictive software will look pretty much like a real painted art: zoomed in or zoomed out.
AutoPainter is actually not an effect, it is the closest thing to watching a real painter. It uses the photo as a reference and automatically paints the scene with different brushes, guided by real-world artists inspired techniques.
As with real painters if you paint the same image multiple times you will get slightly different result.
The full painting process takes about 2 minutes on iPhone 4th generation and it is actually rewarding to watch the progress. During the process you may pinch zoom and scroll the image being painted to examine details as the brushworks are being laid out.
We feel this settings is the best compromise for the speed and quality. We also have MAC version with higher resolution for large format prints.
We believe AutoPainter offers the most authentic paint look from any automatic painting applications.
In this version we bring you 4 incredibly realistic impressionistic styles.
Running colors, water removal, dry scratches: it is all there in this wonderful style. Works great on flowers, landscapes, old buildings or even people.
Inspired by work of Frank Benson (1862-1951). This style has a sunny palette with Mediterranean tones. It does enhance inner light and color harmony and it works best on sunny landscapes and outdoors.
Inspired by late work of Paul Cezanne (1839 - 1906). Painted on an artistic paper, the quick brush strokes with warm, and yellows and chalk details will work wonders on flowers and still life.
Inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. You will discover his signature swirls, bended reality and blue tones with orange details. This style works great on night life photography and landscapes especially if water reflection is involved.
The AutoPainter is a young brother of highly regarded Mediachance desktop application called Dynamic Auto Painter. We bent backwards to make it running on iPhone and the result is incredible. And we even made it look cool!
The best proof of the app thinking like a real painter is the fact that it doesn't really matter what resolution is the input image as long as it shows a paint worthy scene. The AutoPainter recreates the scene by painting a brand new image, not just shuffle pixels around like every other "paint" effect you had seen.
The source could be big image, camera photo, tiny thumbnail downloaded from the web or even snapshot of another picture. The same apply to a noise - it doesn't really matter.
What matters is your keen eye for interesting scene. Look at it as a master painter would - look for dynamic light (no pun intended) and playful game of lights and shadows.
We suggest to start with the most favourite subject - flowers. Flowers nearly always look good in any style. Then try interesting landscape, buildings, still life and scenery.
The styles here are based on impressionistic painters and they may not always work well on portraits - at least not realistic portraits.
Use it as a Feedback tool for learning:
AutoPainter can actually improve your photography skills. A painting will simplify the image to its core visual values allowing you to evaluate the overall impact of the image such as proper framing technique or good separation of subject from the surrounding.
Note: The current medium resolution of 1280 in longest size is a good compromise between quality and usability. It produces pretty great and sharp results because unlike a photo this is completely digitally created image. If you are interested we have applications for desktop.

- Improvement realism in painting images from portraits where you can first draw Portrait Mask over important parts of image (such as face or parts of face like eyes) that need to be more realistic. (Look for the round brush button on the right side after you load image) Try it with Benson style.
- Options to save unchanged Camera images to your album after you take the photo (Keep all Camera Images)
- small speed up
Ratings and Reviews
Really fun app!
I'm a photographer and it's really kind of fun and amazing to watch my pictures transformed into artwork in a wide variety of styles. I had thought that they would all more or less look the same but each painter style is completely unique and renders vastly different images. I'm using one as my wallpaper right now and plan to have others printed as greeting cards because they are charming! :)
My only suggestion for improvement would be to make the painting speed adjustable so you can either watch each detail appear on the canvas or else get to the finished image more quickly, as desired.
I'm not sure why the app crashed for a previous reviewer: I have an iPhone 3Gs and it works perfectly.
I love this app! None of the others come close in quality and the likeness of the painting styles is really astonishing (one exception is Corel's "Paintitnow!," app- free btw!)! An advantage of this over Corel is that the actual classic styles are quite specific (four total, Van Gogh being my favorite). If I could improve this app, I'd say- more artist styles, (perhaps, something really unique, like Klimt, etc..!), the ability to stop at any time, like Corel..., the mid-point can sometimes look even more compelling than the finished product! And, of coarse, faster processing is always better!! That being said, the quality of the results are stellar, I could "name that artist," solely off one of these styles! Bravo! Please consider Klimt in a future update!!
This is a great app. I do wish you could choose when to stop the painting though because sometimes I actually prefer the look of an earlier stage to the finished product. Also I think it would be nice to have the choice between watching the whole painting process or having it finished more quickly. Of course more styles would be wonderful too. Thank you so much for taking the time to design it it's beautiful and I would recommend it to everyone!!!!!!
