You can turn your favorite digital photos into realistic looking paintings such as watercolor, oil painting, pencils, etc. with a few simple mouse clicks. No difficult setup is required. Your photos are turned into paintings in front of your eyes in a few seconds.

Virtual Painter 5 could not be any easier to use -- all you need to do is to select a digital photograph, taken with a digital camera, scanned with a scanner, or downloaded from the web, select one of the 16 painting styles (also called painters or filters), choose the material on which the painting will be created (canvas, wood, stucco, etc.), and let Virtual Painter 5 do the work for you.

Virtual Painter 5 is not a painting tool that you must master to create your own works of art. Rather, the filters it offers are like agents, virtual artists who have their own characteristic techniques and methods. You can preview their art and even request a few changes, but you can leave the hard work to them. Sit back and watch them paint. You're sure to be pleasantly surprised, time after time.

Rabica (Watercolor)
In this conventional watercolor, an overall wash renders the sketch underneath visible, while a thicker application of paint is used for the details. Deformation creates freshness, enlivening human subjects and tracing scenery with a light touch.

Purts (Oil Painting)
This is a conventional oil painting, with a glaze finish. Broad strokes are used for the background, while the detail is added with a finer brush. Deformation creates a solid impression.

Quapeo (Gouache)
Gouache - the application of opaque watercolors or poster colors - is a technique characterized by an even spread of color across the surface.

Plince (Color Pencil)
The picture is formed from rapid strokes drawn with color pencils. Deformation creates the impression of movement

Saplet (Pastel)
In this conventional picture executed in pastel crayons, both colors and delineation are soft. Note that the pastel effect appears harsher on smooth paper, and softer on rough paper.

Eraqus (Rectangles)
This mosaic technique combines rectangles of various sizes. Areas of emphasized focus are treated with a corresponding amount of detail. The effect resembles that of SF art, perhaps suggesting an artificial intelligence at work.

Targelin (Triangles)
This mosaic technique combines triangles of various sizes. Areas of emphasized focus are treated with a corresponding amount of detail. As with the Eraqus (Rectangles) painter, the effect again resembles that of SF art, perhaps suggesting an artificial intelligence at work.

Patomis (Impasto)
This oil painting effect resembles traditional impasto, a technique in which paint is applied straight from the tube. Blocks of color suggest the use of a palette knife.

Ponit (Pointillism)
Soft stippling, the technique of pointillism, results in a delicate watercolor rendering, not unlike that of the Impressionists.

Liks (Silk Screen)
The stencil technique of silkscreen is especially good for contoured portraits of people and sharply defined landscapes.

Estpa (Collage)
Impulsive black lines are sketched over a base comprised of pieces of colored paper or other background material.

Illena (Drawing)
The use of bold strokes and vivid inks creates abstract works expressing a lyrical beauty. Often the original subject is not easily recognizable owing to this dynamic approach.

Ira (Airbrush)
Application of the Airbrush creates a soft effect with vivid colors, a photorealistic finish midway between a photograph and a painting. It is especially recommended for portraits. As a background material, smooth paper is suitable.

Edleen (Embroidery)
This filter creates a relaxed effect with a nostalgic feel. Canvas textures are suggested for the background.

Gotchi (Gothic oil painting)
The use of light and dark in this Gothic style creates a rich, heavy effect suggestive of medieval art. Canvas textures are suggested for the background.

Vufea (Fauvist oil painting)

In the spirit of Fauvism, this filter produces bold effects, with boisterous rendering and intense colors. Subject matter is considerably deformed. Canvas textures are suggested for the background.
