The garden is waterlogged after more rain fell overnight, but actually I am writing today about Waterlogue, an app that turns photos into watercolor paintings.
I normally eschew adding filters to my photos, but last year I saw this inexpensive program recommended highly on the Apple app store and on the spur of the moment I decided to try it.
Current weather conditions notwithstanding, “Rainy” is one of my favorite filters. (Click the gallery to enlarge.)
The app’s interface is clean and simple. Select a photo by clicking on the camera icon where it says, “Start here” and prepare to be mesmerized as the photo is transformed into a painting.
Don’t throw away your bushes and paints if you enjoy the tactile experience of painting, but spending a few minutes with Waterlogue is meditative and relaxing. It is fascinating to see the effect being created.
I seldom have bothered to save the images but a few weeks ago I created my current meditation circle header using Waterlogue. Since then I have intended to share some other watercolor effects. Here are a few more before and after images.
Love it, thought you were having a spelling issue.
Got your attention though!
It does a surprisingly good job.
Neat! I’m going to share this with am artist friend.
Glad you like it.
I think it’s fun and does a pretty good job.
Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Sure, I think it’s an easy, interesting app.
Wow! Time for me to play!
Kevin, hope you’ll enjoy and share your work if you try it.
Wow! I know my daughter would love it.
I’ve shown flowers here but also have had good success with family portraits.
Thanks for sharing this Susie, I wish it had been available when I was producing garden designs, it gives a better impression of an idea than a photograph. I’m going to try it.
Hope you’ll enjoy it Christina. I can see how these effects could be used to emphasize a theme or impression. I’ve noticed it improves some of my cluttered garden photos by reducing the amount of information.
Interesting effect. Lovely lovely hellebores
Thanks. Loving hellebores this year.
So pretty! Love all your hellebores Susie! 😃
Thanks. My best year ever for hellebores.
