Use Your Photo to Create a Textured Oil Painting
Creating a real oil painting takes patience. It can take up to a week for the finished product to dry! But with our Oil Painting effects, all you need is about 5 seconds. Then, simply adjust the Amount of the effect and edit your painting as you would any other photo. Exaggerate your favorite aspects of an oil painting to really make it pop!
Add a Base to Your Photo With Underpainting
Underpainting is a technique used to create a base layer for a painting. Underpainting is usually monochromatic, which the artist uses to build color. Our Underpainting effects add painting-like texture to your photo, as well as definition and depth. Right from the effect’s menu, there are options to edit the Amount, Smoothness, and Sharpness. From there, you can treat the underpainting as you would on a real canvas by adding even more detail. Or just leave it as-is!
Turn Your Photo Into a Fluid Watercolor Painting
