AKVIS OilPaint Software

Turn Your Photos Into Beautiful Paintings!

Thank you AKVIS for the terrific software.

AKVIS OilPaint is an absolutely awesome software! It will take your photos that you took with your digital camera, cell phone, or just about anything you can upload to the computer and transform them into an oil painting.
The chances to recreate your own oil painting to look just like the photo may take hours and days, but with this software you'll have it done in minutes! 

The software really blends colors as if you would when doing a painting by hand. 
You can honestly see every image and shape of the object in your photos when you transform it, on this oil painting software.

The AKVIS OilPaint software isn't hard to set up and use. It only takes a few minutes for either your Windows or Mac 32 bit or 64 bit OS. Once you have it downloaded to the computer, your ready to input the license code or you can use the trial 10 day use for free. Remember, the trial is also as great as owning the product, but you won't be able to access the same tools as you would with the entire program. Now you can select any photo you like, and transform it into a magnificent oil painting. I chose my two Chihuahua dogs caught playing in the back yard together. 

 I easily uploaded the image on the software
with the image circled above.

and than clicked run, located on the right side.

Voila, I have my own oil painting without the time it would take to do by hand. It was so easy that I could be making all my photos into paintings, without lifting a paintbrush or wasting hours doing so. With that said, I would actually use this one process on the software called the batch processing. It will take as many images you want to transform and convert them in the same settings as the first one, allowing you to sit back and watch the amazing process happen in front of your eyes, over and over again.

strokes for each photo. 
 The other perks of this software is that you have the ability to choose your thickness, density, and texture of the brushstrokes used on the transformation. You can also use it as a standalone program or part of the Photoshop plugin. In my opinion, that allows the picture to look more like you took the time to make it. Not all photos will look alike and to have the ability to transform it to be a bit different than the others, will give the illusion that you hand crafted the piece. 

Just imagine, you could take any photo and in a few minutes have it turned into a piece of art. Plus, you could make all your friends and family believe you created the oil painting yourself, no one will know.  
You can click the planet shaped image and share with all social networks.

While Transforming

The image is more smooth verse the photo and you can see the blends of colors.
