Even if you are not a professional painter you can create your own masterpiece! Just use AKVIS OilPaint to turn a regular photo into an oil painting. The mysterious production of a painting happens right before your eyes. The program creates a work of art that looks like a handmade oil painting.

Adjusting the density, texture, and thickness of the brush strokes, you can not only enhance the volume and get impressive effects, but also find your own painting style.

I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!!!! I have played around with it quite a bit and it's so cool....and fun!!!! The program is easy to navigate and if you have questions or get stuck, they have a great tutorial to back up your experience. You can pretty much make your picture into an oil painting with 22 different styles of painting and varying degrees of brush strokes. The possibilities are endless. I can almost guess, too, that you won't be able to let good enough be okay. You'll continue to want to play with this program to see what magic it can create.
