Alien Skin Snap Art

Snap Art 4 transforms a photo into a beautiful work of art that looks completely handcrafted. It features a redesigned user interface and improved speed. Snap Art 4 can be used as a plug-in with popular host software or as a standalone program for even greater flexibility. Snap Art 4 can render hundreds of styles and media, such as oil paint, pencil sketch, watercolor, and crayon. It mimics the techniques of human artists, such as layered brush strokes and enhancement of important edges. Snap Art takes care of all the tedious work of drawing brush strokes. For more control, the masking tool can bring out extra detail in areas that need it.

Snap art is great! It can turn any old photo into an artwork in seconds. It's really easy to use and has a bunch of controls for different media types, brush strokes, color curves and more!

Full-sized prints look awesome with Snap Art, especially when printed on canvas. Most people can't tell it's not real paint even after they touch the print. They assume it's a copy of an original.

It's easy to use, and a lot of fun.

Great product! Easy to instal the plug-in into photoshop. The toolbar is quite simple forward once you've had an initial play. The program lets you convert any photograph into a very realistic piece of artwork/painting. You get to use the whole program, with no restrictions for 30 days, lots of fun for any arty types :)

Your finished piece, after a couple of button pressing tweaks, can look as arty or realistic as you want, with effects covering all the main medias (Oil, acrylic, pencil, pastels, charcoal, thick canvas, thin, etc.. the list goes on and on)

I had been looking for a program like this for quite a while but in my opinion, nothing else compares in this price bracket at all. When my trial expires, I will be buying the license. Great product, thanks!
