I love this app. It is so much fun and converts images beautifully. I wish that they would let you add creative text boxes and text. Also, they should add easy cropping/scissor options so that you can easily cut images/objects/people from one photo and place it onto another photo and then convert into a painting. This would be perfect if they added those features. I think many would pay for an app with all of those options.
This App does an excellent job of creating various effects that I enjoy adding to my images.I am an avid photography hobbyist who shares my images regularly on the Flickr Platform. Unlike many other enthusiasts, instead of Lightroom and Photoshop and Topaz, I use POLARR and do almost all of my post-processing on my iPad Pro. This app and its sister app called.... Simply HDR.....work wonders to bring out the diverse effects that I want to achieve be in any type of image, be it Landscape, portrait, still, wildlife etc.... I use A Canon 80D as my standard camera but use it on other cameras as well including my iPhone. My only HOPE IS THAT DESIGNERS MAINTAIN PACE WITH ANY AND ALL iOS UPDATES as it is crucial in photographic applications........
PROS: I love the effects and options. This app puts out some gorgeous results. CON: I had to knock off a star because it doesn’t support alpha layers, so if you have something with a transparent background that you want to... paintify, and then put on a different BG, this app will fill in a white BG that you then have to go in and manually erase yourself.
I just bought this App and am extremely disappointed in the results. Where it does transform a photo into the look of a painting, you cannot get a natural look. All the colors come out harsh and severe. A misrepresentation as far as I’m concerned since their ad shows a softer, more natural look on the little boy.
I enjoy JixiPix' entire family of artifying apps; with this Portrait Painter update, it's even better and more user-friendly. So many controls (brush size, color, canvas, etc.) to tweak your painting just the way you like it. You can turn any random photo into a lovely piece of art--realistic or abstract. I highly recommend Portrait Painter, along with their other products.
UP DATE: I can get this to give me a decent facsimile if I run a photo through Jix Pix Moku Hangu, then through a free app called Photo Booth, then through this app. Photo Booth smooths out all imperfections. I went to the Jix Pix website and read every detail about this before buying. It claims to have a skin smoother, to smooth out freckles, my family has freckles. Every skin imperfection is HIGHLY exaggerated. Freckles look like huge BLACK spots. Nothing like the demo pictures. This is the worse art painting program I own, and I own nine of them. Check out Paint It Now by Corel. It runs circles around this for 99 cents. This program doesn't do what it claims. If the skin smoother was there it might salvage something. As it is, it's not acceptable. Paid way too much, I am on an extremely limited budget. This was like throwing money in the trash. It will be removed from my iTouch ASAP!! I would like a refund. If a person buys something from a place of business, a store, they can get a refund. I feel ripped off!!l UPDATE: Now it has crashed repeatedly. I can't get to the other modes, styles, the "button doesn;t work! This has completly failed on me. I again went to the Jix Pix website, and it says definately says they have a skin smoother. I have yet to find it, I did a pix of my 12 year old gradaughter who has baby smooth skin, she looks like there are worms crawling on her, gross!
There are so many of this type of app out there, yet the quality of the results are what really counts for me. I have noticed that the higher the resolution of the original, the better quality of the finished product. The images I obtained from using this app were later used to create a 12x12 printed canvas to hang in my home, and it looks awesome.
Having tried and been disappointed with several "painting" apps, I was a little weary to try another, but on a lark gave this one a go. I ran in to some of the compatibility issues talked about in some reviews, but Jix Pix was quick to make it right. The paint effect in this one looks nice and smooth as promised, and works well with my workflow. thanks!
Ever since I downloaded this app I can't stop using it on all my photos. People at work are loving what I'm coming up with. Everyone is amazed including me! This isn't just a gimmicky kids app. I am over 40 and I love this thing! My only recommendation is to change the photo for the app it looks a little scandalous :)
This app is all around amazing!!! I honestly can't get enough of using it. Every since I've downloaded it (almost a year ago) I've used it on about 95% of the photos I've uploaded. I get people all the time asking me what app am I using!!! Thanks for creating this work of art! #LiveFastRetireYoung
Love this app!!!!! Can't stop using it. Makes every picture look amazing. I have about 10 different photo apps n this is by far my favorite. The only down side is that it takes the picture a lot longer to save, for some reason.
This is the best app I've used in my editing career and it helps out SO much! Best quality as others have said and it doesn't make stuff look really fake it just enhances and makes it look better! Thanks for putting this app up! Keep it going!
I've never written a review on an app before, but this app is just too good to not write a review! I love this app so much! It makes my pictures look amazing, and all my friends love it as well! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
This app is okay... There's only a few filters in this that I'd actually use... Simply HDR is still their best app. I wanna try Pop Dot Photos and their other apps but I've already invested 99 cents twice into this and Simply HDR and I really don't see that much of a drastic difference... I wish they made an app where you could choose between HDR, Pop Dot, Portrait, etc all in one
Just got the app - too early to write a comprehensive view( but it requested a review....) looks of it it's pretty good I wish it had various filters for water color effects, pencil, charcoal etc.. And easier controls for saturation etc. Im sure the creators will continue to improve it.
This app has a great potential but currently it is not good. 1) it is slow even on iPhone5 2) the UI is super ugly and buggy: all if the time tiny crosshairs are popping out on the presets and blink! Can't make them stop and I have to tap 2-3 times to choose a preset. The top bar of the UI isn't visible because the iPhone's topbar is showing.
The possibilities are endless! I've made many of my own presets...one click and I'm done. Or I sit for hours and experiment. I've uploaded many old photos and breathed new life into them. I highly recommend! ❤️💛💚💙💜
i SO LOVE this app 😍 &'. its sooo worth every last dollar being spent on buying this app. its VERY TRUE as describe in detail .. how i think ya'll should do an update where you can upload an video and add the kind of portrait you want that would be SO DOPE other then that i LOVEEEEE 🙌🙌👍👍👍👍👌
Portrait Painter does not achieve good results by itself. Edit your photo with the 'Drama' setting with the Snapseed app first. Add some sharpening. Then import that image to Portrait Painter. The rendering time is way too long. There is also no preset option. Art Studio app is literally photoshop and its response time is immediate.
