iPhone Screenshots


Updated for iOS 9!

ToonPAINT allows you to easily create awesome looking cartoon-paintings with your own photos.

*NEW*: export directly to Instagram app if you have it on your device.

Even if you have never drawn or painted before, ToonPAINT sets you up for quick success by providing a "MagiSketch" that you can simply color-in. It's as easy as "paint-by-numbers", but using your own personal images. Unlike other photography apps, ToonPAINT is not just an image filter -- it's a smart-painting application that enables you to express your creativity and obtain compelling results without requiring you to take Art classes.

Simply import a photo, create an "automagic" sketch of the photo, color-in at your leisure, and you're done!

IMPORTANT -- You can CHANGE THE COLORS in the palette by DOUBLE-TAPPING on the color splats.


* IMPORT: Import pictures from your iPhone or iPod touch, or even take a snapshot with the iPhone's built-in camera.

* MAGISKETCH: State-of-the-Art image processing algorithms process your input image to create a customizable sketch, fully automatically. You can create many exciting effects just by adjusting the basic and advanced MagiSketch settings.

* PAINTING: You can color-in the MagiSketch by painting with your finger to create amazing images within minutes.

* TOON COLOR: With our new optional ToonColor feature, you can take the hard part out of creating great looking color sketches and let the app do the heavy lifting.

* SESSIONS: Your current session is automatically saved when you load a new image, so you can continue it at a later time.

* UNDO/REDO: You can correct any painting mishaps by shaking the iPhone, or by accessing undo/redo via the "bomb" icon.

* NAVIGATION: While you paint, you can pinch-zoom and pan to give you the most control over your painting.

* HELP/HINTS: New to painting? We've got your back! When you first use ToonPAINT, help screens instruct you about the functionality of the app. For more advanced users, we provide in-app hints and tips.

* LANGUAGES: ToonPAINT now supports 10 different languages

We hope you enjoy using ToonPAINT as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!

Fixed to what it once was.

ToonPaint App Great!


This is my first post to review an app after using about a dozen image altering apps for my itouch. This hands down is my favorite. It's speedy, the controls and colors are pretty well laid out and the final, output exceeds expectations for such a low priced application. I'm having fun just going over pictures and redoing them for family and friends. A couple of points that may be wished for on the next upgrade. the switch over from two fingers to drag and resize is a bit sensitive. sometimes when you mean to resize or move the picture if you dont get both fingers on the same time you end up drawing a line and have to reedit or undo the mistake. Also multiple undos (at least 3). The ability to move the picture border at least 1/3 into the work area so we can color the ends easier. Maybe a smudge tool for an hombre effect. Others mentioned automatically colorized when opened as well as maybe a paint bucket fill in tool. For the fun aspect I'd like to see cartoon bubbles that we could fill in the words as well as the comic book enlarged "polka dot" backgrounds that you see on fun greeting cards or Roy Lichenstein paintings.

LOVE this app!


I have been having SO MUCH FUN with this app since I purchased it- I can't seem to put it down!
It's intuitive, fun and easy to use.
I am giving it only 4 stars here as I wish it had a couple of features that I hope to see in a future version including the ability to load a picture that was painted and saved in the camera roll to the app WITHOUT stripping it of it's color - so that you can CONTINUE to work on it or re-adjust an element or line or color after exiting from the photo being worked on. Basically, what I'm saying is that it would be nice to be able to bypass the color stripping that occurs at the loading of the photo into the app. Also a "Favorite Color" palette would be a nice addition.
I enjoyed this app so much that I went to their website to purchase their computer software to add these Toons to some video as well on my laptop, but was sad to see that their Mac OSx version is not ready yet. Hopefully it will be out soon.
This little gem is a no brainer.... well worth it's price- just be prepared to spend many hours altering all you favorite photos!
