Revisualize your photos through an AI artist's eye.
This filter is based on a model of the eye developed to enable an artificial intelligence to see. We asked it to show us what it sees, and this is what came out. Just select or snap a photo for Painteresque to revisualize, and a few seconds later the resulting image is ready to save. With version 2, you can control various settings and save configurations in custom styles, or choose from a handful of included styles.
It generally produces good results for scenery, still lifes, architecture, and animals. Results for photos of people can be good or bad since it tends to bring out details rather than hiding them.

This is my favorite photo filter by far and I have them all. I would give this app 10 stars if I could!
Used on the right pictures and with judicious restraint it makes textures really pop. I particularly love Painteresque for stone, wood, foliage and fur. Simply stunning on most textured objects. It does not look good on smooth surfaces such as skin or sky.
Props to Simon Funk for making such a fantastic filter app. Please consider making Painteresque available for as an app for the Mac. I would love to be able to easily use in in conjunction with Photoshop. Right now I’m doing this but it is cumbersome to have to import the photos between the iPad and Mac
An Exceptional Effects App
This was my first photo effects app when it came out in version 1. I loved its simplicity - turning me from a so-so snap shooter into a creator of art works I loved. I still go back to my earliest edits with appreciation, and some of my friends like them best. With version 2 I have more control thanks to the fine tuning option. Today I use Painteresque mostly as one stage of my effects as there is nothing else quite like it. Thank you for an inspiring app that has more flexibility than first appears and does what it does with no fuss and beautifully. It's worth every penny. Well done.
What a waste of money
Want to edit .... You get a tiny little picture of your photo in a box, up at the top. You can barely see what's happening until you hit done. Each step, have to hit done, then wait while it loads. You spend 90% of time waiting for stuff to load. Same with a preset. Doesn't scroll through. You have to load each and everytime. There are so many other apps out there that are far better than this mess.
