GMX-PhotoPainter is a Digital Photo Painting package with a powerful painting engine that helps and enables the user to EASILY interact, customize and transform any photograph into original artwork. Start with any existing digital image and quickly add paintbrush strokes manually or with the Auto Painting feature.
Brushes and Styles: Imitate traditional media with Watercolors, Oils, Crayons or Pen & Ink. Each brush comes in different sizes and levels of details. Users can also create their own customized brush stroke style. Auto Paint and Preview Start/Stop: One click of the mouse or drawing tablet starts and stops the auto-painting tool. Add a lot or a little paint to the image. Paint Like a Master: Use the realistic painting styles of Van Gogh, Seurat or Matisse to paint a photo. Freehand Drawing: Use the Freehand Tool to draw detailed and realistic brushstrokes or add customized strokes to the image that was auto-painted. Pattern and Texture Editor: Create and Edit pattern brushes for added details.
Unlike the typical "one click" effects, which are based on preset templates, GMX-PhotoPainter's creations are made stroke by stroke and lets the users paint interactively and change painting settings in any stage of the painting process. Each brushstroke is rendered by its sofisticated Paint Engine which extracts topological information about source photograph, and color information.
This software requires only a few minutes to learn and is perfect for ANY hobbyist or professional who wants to create realistic paintings from photos.
