An artist photographer's opinion

I've never written a review of an app before. But this app is really cool and I wanted to congratulate the creators of it. It is easy to use, and though it doesn't do what I was looking for, which was turning a photograph into something that looks sort of pixelated like Renoir and Monet did, The effect that it gives the artist is unusual and acceptable considering the cost of the app.

In a few moments I learned how to use it and sent out 2 photos that I turned into pictures which I thought the people who I had taken the pictures of would really appreciate. Keep in mind I've only had this app for an hour or so. Once I get the hang of it I bet I'm going to make sensational looking pictures. The kind that I can sell. If that's not worth trying it nothing is.

Top notch photo-paint app

I'm a novice re: photo to painting apps; I usually focus on traditional landscape images. However, I've been discovering the joy of turning seemingly ordinary photos into strong images/art that conveys my vision at the time; amazing. On the desktop, I've been using Snapart for a long time and Paper Artist on iOS, however have been looking for something more robust. This app definitely fits the bill. It's fairly intuitive, it has a lot of various types of... Painting Styles and is has enough Modifiable settings to satisfy most people. All in all a top notch product. Now what they need to do is create a desktop version.

Truly Marvelous and VERY HAPPY !

I absolutely ADORE this app !
It's wonderful .. And when I had some issues with a revision, the designers contacted me and immediately made me happy !!
I can't recommend this wonderful app anymore than 5 stars only because I'm looted here . But I would give these designers 30 stars if I could !
Truthfully , I liked the app much better prior to the revisions . I had more control over what I wanted to do as far as personal creativity .
Still better than any other app like this .
