Got hobby? After living in Paris (the old one) for a year, my wife encouraged me to take up a hobby. I took up painting.
At this juncture of my life I’ve assured family and newly found Parisian friends that Marc Chagall (not to mention Picasso, Rembrandt and other notable painters) will not have competition from this Yankee. I wasn’t even a good paint-by-numbers guy until PaintMee showed up.
Paint Without Numbers
Painting, the real kind, requires talent. The best paint, the best palette, the best brushes, and a smock and cap will not get the job done. PaintMee might.
PaintMee might be what painting is in the future.
Open a digital photo. Drag it to PaintMe. Grab a preset and start painting over the photo.
Every painting is completely unique, based upon your strokes, the photos, the color combinations, and the presets. And, it’s all done as a 3D object. It’s not a simple Photoshop plugin that matches a painting style to a photo.
Precision Strokes, Folks
If a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few chapters for your eyes to chew on.
There’s a secret to all this and it’s behind the scenes on your Mac. Think 3D models, many thousands of individually perfectly painted strokes.
The more powerful your Mac, the faster each stroke is rendered. PaintMe comes with 10 presets. The pop up menus control each aspect so every painting, even on the same photo, is rendered differently.
Your paintings can be saved as high quality .jpg images, or exported as Photoshop PSD files with each layer on a separate background.
Here’s the kicker.
PaintMee Pro can export the finished product as a stroke-by-stoke animated movie in HD. This is not a painting app you’ve seen anywhere else. The Pro version costs a bit more, so try the basic version first.
It’s art. It’s modern art. The results can be stunning.
