The Oil effect converts your photographs into oil paintings. The program lays brush strokes naturally using the original photo as a reference. Even with the default settings you can achieve a realistic result coming very close to hand-painted works.
The Watercolor style converts a photo into a watercolor painting. ArtWork lets you create beautiful, airy, and light watercolor paintings. You can achieve an effect very similar the work of a real artist!
The Comics effect allows ArtWork users to replicate works of famous comics artists with just a few clicks. This effect reduces the tones of the photo to create an image similar to a poster or a cartoon. You can make a comic strip from your party photos or create an original poster.
The Pen&Ink effect creates ink drawings from digital photos. It is emulating a special technique in which colored inks are applied to paper using a pen - from modern pens to a quill dipped in an inkwell. This style produces graceful images composed of object outlines.
The Linocut effect creates an image in the style of a linocut print. Linocut is a method in which a raised pattern is carved into a piece of linoleum, which is then used with ink to print an image on paper. Linocuts are known for their characteristic expressiveness, strong contrast between black and white, and rich and exuberant strokes. This effect is ideally suited for images of architecture or nature scenes.
