Free version of the groundbreaking PaintMee HD, the world's most advanced digital oil painting generator. Smoothly animated, blazing speed!
The full versions of PaintMee for both iPad and iPhone have been App Store features several times.
Prepare to experience something quite unique: Just pick any photo from your library. Watch it immediately animate stroke by stroke into a high quality impressionistic oil painting. Share your masterpieces with the world.
PaintMee combines rock solid, world unique art generation algorithms and professional quality output with extreme ease of use and a high level of entertainment. Only available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch!
Exceptional ease of use is employed through-out the app. Only the currently relevant controls are visible at any time. No screen cluttering, to keep focus on your art.
Six carefully balanced parameter controls are available for you to play around with. Individually, all deeply impact the look of the final painting, and when used in combination the possibilities are virtually endless. Even applying identical settings twice generates two completely unique paintings! You make the settings, you are the artist.
The algorithms are very flexible and stable to guarantee great results with any input image. Although the processing is highly complex, heavy optimization for the iPad keeps waiting times at a minimum, making PaintMee Lite HD not just incredibly powerful but also, just as importantly, fun to use!
The finished paintings are internally stored in a resolution independent format (actually a complete, infinite resolution 3D model containing thousands of strokes as separate objects!), so you can zoom as deep as you like into them to inspect the paint.
A full screen crop feature lets you quickly and easily specify exactly what part of the source photo to use and the shape of the canvas in a single simple step.
Support for smooth animation is built right into the core of the algorithms. If you wish, use the slider to enjoy the painting at a lower pace.
Save your paintings to facebook or to an email.
The paid full version features:
- Much higher maximum detail level.
- Amazing 64 layer mode.
- Save to photo album, shared documents, or the clipboard.
- Export any painting in high quality resolutions up to 4096 x 3072 (12 Megapixels), regardless of input size.
- Ability to halt animation to save unfinished snapshots.
- No logo overlay in bottom right corner.
Ratings and Reviews
The Best there Is... Honestly!
If you don't own this app, ignore the negative comments... if you're looking for a paint app that does all the work for you, this has no competition. I have tried dozens of such apps and this one is by far the best. I am NOT comparing it to paint apps that you do the painting (if you want to do the painting your self, buy ArtStudio or Procreate), only the apps where the algorithms take a photo and make it look like a painting. Most of those apps produce a result that look like a computer has tried to copy a person, but PaintMee HD actually successfully pulls-off a realistic rendering that often looks authentically human-painted. I have painted professionally for decades and never give five stars to an app like this, but in this case five stars is given because PaintMee is honestly the best there is. (Nope... they didn't pay me to write this either.)
You lose nothing by giving the free version a try.
You really need the full version
I know from the Mac version (which I have) that this is an awesome app. However, if you want to do things like faces and have them be recognizable, you really need to spring for the full version, because in the light version, the highest detail settings are locked. The "randomize" feature in this app, however, is mind-bogglingly cool!
Fun, needs more flexibility
I like this to try to see what my photos would look like painted. But the free version at least does not allow you to make little touch ups with your finger, and the paint strokes are way too wide, like you painted with a house painting brush or wide stick.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
