Painting styles

The Photo Painting panel is located on the right side of the workspace and provides several preset painting styles. All of the painting presets pick up color, intensity and lightness from the original photo, then apply brushstrokes in the style that you choose.

Painting styles

Oil – applies a combination of short dabs and longer brushstrokes to produce the color and texture of oil paint

Impressionist – applies short and very visible brushstrokes to create the illusion of movement and light

Modern – applies bold brushstrokes and adds vibrance to colors to produce an abstract reinterpretation of a photo

Illustration – applies a wide variety of brushstrokes to produce an illustration-style painting

Detailed Watercolor – applies a translucent wash to produce the smooth, soft effect of watercolor paint on your photo

Watercolor Sketch – applies a combination of drawn lines and watercolor brushstrokes that add depth, texture and contrast

Colored Pencil – applies fine-tipped colored pencil strokes
