This app creates endless paintings. The images are often like softly colored landscapes - eerily familiar, yet completely unique.

The creation process is completely random. You're guaranteed to never get the same image twice!

The app displays a smooth slideshow of paintings. Once complete, images can be saved to disk.

Include your own photos in the mix, and create infinite variations of personal artwork! With your own photos and the full-screen mode, you can also use Turtledoveland as a vividly regenerating photo frame.

Any images you create with this app are yours. Use them in any way you like, for example as desktop background art, or as graphic elements within your own creations.

A screensaver is also included for free with this app. It will be sent to you separately by email (the Mac App Store does not allow installing the screensaver from inside the app). Look in the Extras menu to receive the screensaver.

This app is also available for iPad.

What's New in Version 1.1

You can now get this app as a screen saver for your Mac!

The screensaver will be sent to you by email. Use the Extras menu within the app to sign up and receive it instantly.

Customer Reviews

Shades of mud?

Are there any settings to get the colors to display something beyond dark and muddy? No matter how often I run this and no matter what images I import, it doesn't seem to reach beyond a gloomy texture of sameness. Sometimes the transitions start to hint at something wondeful, but those are never captured as images. I just keep ending up with grainy low-res versions of mud.

Abstract yet familiar

Turtledoveland creates imagery that is both nonrepresentational yet eerily familiar. Mixing with photos or on its own, its a fun little app. The best part is the free screensaver feature. (Available through an email subscription.)

Refreshingly Different

I have enjoyed using Turtledoveland for a while ... I do agree with others that perhaps some additional controls might be useful.

As others here have suggested additional controls for Opacity and Color Scheme whould be useful ... and much appreciated by all of those here
that like Turtledoveland.

I hope that the suggestions are received in a positive light ... THANK YOU for your efforts thus far.
