PhotoViva is currently free in the App Store Lamina Design’s photo editor was previously $2.99.
Differently from the majority of other apps that use art filters to turn photos into paintings, PhotoViva comes with a set of photographic tools for a more comprehensive editing experience. It’s possible to use the app not only to paint over photos and give them a painterly look, but also to adjust contrast and brightness, saturation and hue, to apply watermarks, HDR correction, and more. The app is compatible both with iPhone and iPad.
The app has an Autopainting feature, but for more control and accurate results, it is recomended to apply the art filter over the original photos by painting with your fingers. For the best results with the manual mode, you have to start with large strokes and then gradually resize to a smaller brush for finer details.
