The Review Whenever I read other reviews I always try to "read between the lines" to decide what I think the reviewer is really saying. It is amazing how many reviewers will delicately try to use the right words or sentences in order to avoid saying what they really feel about a product. I, myself, am probably guilty of this at one point or another, but I typically do try to write what I'm feeling.
Image QualityThe most important aspect of an art program like this is the quality of its artistic effects. Regardless of speed, price, or any other criteria - if a natural-media software program doesn't deliver realistic results then nothing else really matters.
My opinion about the effects are mixed. Comic, Impasto, Pointillism, and the Oil Painting effects seem to offer the most realism - consistently delivering what I felt were 'realistic' (or 'creative' in the case of the Comic filter) paint styles regardless of the photo that I threw at it. I really liked the Pencil Sketch effect as well, especially when I selected to use charcoal instead of pencil, but results varied widely depending on the photograph used. It seemed that images with strong contrast worked best with all of the pen and pencil filters. Of the ten filters provided my least favorite were the Pastel, Pen and Ink, and Watercolor, though I did find a few images where the watercolor effect looked pretty good. I'm sure with the right image and settings most of these filters can offer acceptable results, just not always on the image you were hoping for.
Filters and Sample ImagesSince art is subjective and results will vary based on the image selected, I thought it was important to show some samples...
