Dynamic Auto-Painter

October 29, 2011

Ever since I first saw Corel Painter, I thought it was really cool how a photo could be turned into a painting. When I first saw Painter (it was made by Fractal Design back then), it was many years before digital photography came on the scene. That was also long before it was commonplace to work with large images and to print anything on a wide-format printer.

Now large images from digital cameras are everywhere. It isn’t hard to find a wide-format printer loaded with canvas for printing. Now all you need is a way to turn those photos into something that looks like a painting. Dynamic Auto-Painter is a tool that specializes in that type of conversion. It simulates the brush strokes and the overall look of some of the best-known artists throughout history. You can even ask it to simulate the texture of various surfaces. Even more features are available in the 64-bit version so the brush strokes have more dimension. A trial version is available if you want to play with it a little bit before buying.

I’d love to see some of the artwork you create with this tool. Post the original photo and the resulting painting on the Graphics Unleashed Facebook page and tell us why style you used to create it.
