If you’re like me and have limited art skills, I think you’ll love this cool photo editing site. You can take any photo and add different effects to turn your photograph into a masterpiece. It’s absolutely free and you don’t even need to create an account to use it. The coolest part are the different effects and animations including my favorite one and I’ll show you how to turn any photo into an oil painting complete with realistic looking brush strokes! I had fun experimenting with the different effects to make my photos really pop!
Years ago, I wrote a post on how to turn any photo into a watercolor so I’m excited about this cool site that takes simple photo editing to the next level!
A special thanks to Thrifty Decor Chick for cluing me into this site! She used it to jazz up her vacation pics in Italy.
I’m sharing some examples of my favorite effects using a photo I took at the pumpkin patch the other day and a really fun one of my dog.
Below my example photos, I provide a quick and easy tutorial on how to use this photo editing site so you too can create stunning effects to your photos.
My Photo – Before
Of course, I had to try it out on this cute photo of Sushi. Here’s the before photo …
and the after oil painting using the Landscape effect!
