Natural Media Art Styles

Experiment with over 300 natural-looking styles and 100 presets under the categories of drawing, graphic arts, oil painting, watercolor, pencil sketch, acrylic painting, and photo effects to transform your image into a digital painting much faster than can be done manually.

Life-like Painting Techniques

Painting techniques and drawing techniques follow the lines and contours of the image just like a real artist delivering a quality rendition whether your original was a photo, fractal, or 3D render or vector illustration.

Customizable Artistic Styles

Modify the style properties such as brush width, pencil line length, or number of passes to tailor the computer painting or drawing effects to your image.


Image Manipulation

Enhance the input image's brightness, saturation, rotation, scaling, etc. with our photo editor tool; ensuring the highest quality output. Preserve the quality of your image with the ability to specify the image DPI.

Unique Layering Effects

Layer, chain, re-order, and blend any of the 350 artistic styles, multiple images, and text layers to achieve limitless combinations to continually create unique digital art effects.

Node-Based Graph Editor

Build your own styles easily with the node-based filter graph editor by simply dragging and dropping existing styles, and then connecting input and output pins, to generate something truly unique. Or just blend and tweak a few existing styles and save your layered composition as a new style.


Image to Painting Tools

Customize the painting techniques and brushstrokes with the built-in brushes, import your own scanned brushes or add standard ABR brushes.

Color Management

Extract color palettes from images, import palettes, delete, add, view or save colors within our flexible Color Palette Editor.

Flexible Digital Art Tools

Save the final look as a style in your Favorites folder that can be applied and adapted to other images. Whether completing photo retouching or working on a book illustration, the saved style can be applied easily, without having to try to duplicate it a second time.


Layer Masks

Apply styles to specific sections of your photo for a creative edge: determine which areas your image will receive during the application of any style with the Layer Mask.

Digital Painting Component

Differences between canvas painting and screen painting merge while creativity expands when you are painting whole images, small sections, or retouching a style by hand with the Paint Module.
