Excellent app
grmdodger on 10/14/2017
I’ve noticed a few things that can be better. When saving and for printing it needs more resolution/pixels. Also when going into photo app to choose a photo allow for more choices such as favorites (folder). I love it but print quality is not up to par.

You know all that time you spend in the waiting room? There's an app for that.
Easy, Feature-Rich App Changes Any Photo into a Painting
The Ignoble One on 10/5/2017
Brushstroke is an amazing find. With a few easy clicks, any photo can become a realistic looking painting. You can even see the brushstrokes! (Hence the app name.) Want more detail to come through from your photo? Less? Tons of presets make it simple to adjust the effects to your liking. This app isn't made for photo editing. It does one thing and it does it phenomenally. You can even sign your "painting" like a true artist. There's no better app that combines ease of use with such impressive, realistic results.
Back and better than ever!
BAR112 on 10/4/2017
Thanks, Code Organa, for updating this fantastic app! Such a plethora of beautiful artistic options, it’s hard to choose... And so simple to create your masterpieces, too. Highly recommend Brushstroke!
Creative fun
Captpiper on 9/21/2017
I enjoy seeing how the different filters affect my photos. I even save and reload the manipulated photos to see what other effects I can create.
A fun app
Jinksed on 9/17/2017
A lot of great combinations!
UdayP on 9/13/2017
Useful brushes aplenty!
Definitely worth having - Best Sketch N Art Filters
Mdarnell514 on 8/24/2017
That I've seen on any app in the store that are easy to access and adjust. Totally unique filters I've never seen anywhere else also. Great signature feature too.
Awesome app!
FairyLynne on 8/23/2017
I love the artistic effects and all the controls... lots of fun and great outcomes!
Darcwell on 8/19/2017
Great App! Lots of options to get the desired image/art.
DonBoe on 8/10/2017
This app. is the best I've found to change a boring photo into a beautiful oil painting that's simply amazing, plus it's a steal at $3.99.
Voila!! A painting to frame!
Tired Nancy on 7/30/2017
This is an easy app for doing something different with pictures. There are lots of variations and it's fun too! Love it!!!
A complex, dynamic paint brush
Clementine Penny on 7/16/2017
You can bring your images to a new life employing a multitude of realistic techniques, from oil to watercolor to abstract to illustration and a wealth of subtle variations in between. I have my go-to favorites; I'm sure you'll find yours... !
Nice outcome
Studio Photographer on 7/13/2017
The variety of effects has impressed me. I also bought the additional Illustration package - well worth it.
Great App
mfhons on 7/12/2017
This is my newest fav many great features!
Nice app
Treeceart on 7/6/2017
Enjoying it ver much
Really impressed
Wallabychamp on 7/6/2017
This is such a cool concept. I can take any picture and turn it into a painting with full control over every detail. So much potential! Then I have the option to sign it, share it via social media, or actually have it printed, framed, and sent to my house. Outstanding! This app has become a major tool for my decorating as well as gift giving. I love it! I'm working on my 7th picture now! Update..... still great! Loving it!
This update it amazing! You won't be disappointed!
Original app user on 7/6/2017
I've had this app for a while now and it's still one of my favorites.
Awesome Effects
LindsOmething on 6/30/2017
Really love this app! It adds an element to my photos I can't replicate anywhere else. User friendly and easy to navigate.
Easy to use (and abuse)
Awe Heal on 6/29/2017
This app reminds me of a lite version of Abode Illustrator's feature to turn photos into paintings...but waaaay easier to learn/use. I make a lot of greeting cards and this is my go to App for making them. My friends and family now request them! 28-Jun-2017 UPDATE: more filters = more fun.
Nim62 on 6/22/2017
Great app. Gives the artist a guide for finished product. It will be good if the app can show the sequence of painting.
Best app!
Bassfooter on 6/19/2017
This app tricks my friend that I painted it!😏She thinks that the app is awesome. So she downloaded it. I recommend!!
Awesome transformation app!
new images on 6/6/2017
Not only can I save a photo but they will ship your photo too! Win-win!
jazl-laptopersonal7132016 on 6/6/2017
Very good app. Make the same moment of the picture to transport to another timeline!!!
Great Photo App
BK0706 on 6/3/2017
This App has lots of features to change your photograph to a beautiful work of art! It is a must have for a photographers library!
Best so far
Pete the bard on 5/25/2017
I have tried most of the photo to painting apps and I like this the best so far
robinmead on 5/20/2017
I love great
darthurb on 5/20/2017
The choices of which effect is best is very difficult! Subtle and expressive!
I Love This App!!!! 🎨📱👩‍🎨
Tfrog5489 on 5/5/2017
I'm giving this app a 5 star rating because this app is really awesome because you can turn your own photos into a work of art and best of all, the paintings look antique and the cool thing about it is that you don't have to worry about making a mess with the real thing and forget those naysayers who like to give this awesome app goose-eggs cause all those naysayers want is a reaction.... this app is way better than any other app because you get to make your photos look really antique and turn them into elaborate paintings without having to worry about making a mess with a real paintbrush. Don't listen to those naysayers who like to give goose-eggs to this awesome app because this app is really fun to use and I would strongly recommend this app to anyone who likes to turn their own photos into elaborate works of art.
So Much Fun!
Crazylegsray on 4/26/2017
This is my favorite way to dress up good photos, but it is even better at saving my good ideas that didn't turn out as well as they could have! It is a lot of fun!
Great app
Photo Lorie on 4/26/2017
I love this app. Has plenty to choose from.
Incredible art is just a button away
greggfiller on 4/20/2017
I am an amateur photographer and just use my Samsung phone. This app turns my humble photos into professionally tasteful paintings. Very intuitive- didn't even read the instructions!
I'm an "artist'!
Great sleeping pill on 4/15/2017
I love this app! Though I have little to no artistic talent other than being able to take pictures with my phone, I'm able to create canvases that express my vision of what I want the picture to convey.
Love, love, love!!!
CashDog07 on 4/12/2017
I absolutely love this app. It is easy to use and makes artwork out of your favorite photos that look fantastic blown up & printed on canvas.
Awesome app.
Vbrwn on 4/12/2017
Best painting app yet. Like. That I can turn around and make my creations into real hang-able art.
Love this
Frustrated 12345! on 4/4/2017
Great filters!
Please allow for the removal of brushstrokes
Saveicarus on 3/28/2017
This app is quite phenomenal, but I would prefer to be able to control the intensity of the illusion of brushstrokes, especially in the oil simulation imagery. I would prefer to not have it at all if it were an option as well, but at least make it something that the user can adjust the presence of.
It's easy and fun to create paintings of your photos!
Rosiview on 3/20/2017
A friend recommended this app, showing me what she did using it. I love it. I mainly like to use it to change the look of my people shots, while my friend uses it on nature shots, but wither way you can create some unusual and eye catching photos.
Very Happy
Sggypsy on 3/11/2017
This app is a ton of fun. Easy to use and create really cool things from your photography. Enjoy and use it often.
Great job on the app
MATSNL65 on 2/22/2017
Really good at the finer touches. Emulates a few things very well. Of course, the quality of the picture relates to the quality of the Alcom using the app.
This is magical
jml819_2 on 2/20/2017
I have spent endless hours creating great art from my photos. I have used the app for quite a while and just added the illustration pack which I really love. Enjoy!
Master Stroke
BazookaTime on 2/13/2017
Being a game artist, BrushStroke has saved me a ton of time and money. BrushStoke has also changed some of my art into creative pieces that would never have created. BrushStoke is the best purchase I have ever made!
I Have One Word For This App
hljennings on 2/9/2017
Love it!!!
Ima-dawg-lover on 2/8/2017
I love this app! I can't tell you how many photos I've painted with it, and I am absolutely certain I will paint many more. It's not just fun, but the results are truly beautiful! I highly recommend it!
Love it
Bruce'sGirl4Ever on 2/7/2017
I personally think the app is wonderful! Phones are like toys now almost & mine has certainly replaced my computer! I love that I can adjust my personal photos without 1-paying a ton of money, & without 2-being super creative.. I really could care less what Warhol would think. He'd actually probably love it. Never know. Never thought i would see my mom use an iPad either, so there ya go! ❤ the app though
Awesome app
Queen Victoria II on 2/5/2017
I love all the different painting filters
Great App!
progressive1 on 2/4/2017
I absolutely love this app. This is one of my favorite apps.
Great App
Jsands on 2/2/2017
A wonderful photo app for both expert and amateur.
Teach/learn on 1/28/2017
Of all my art apps, this is my favorite! It makes my photos look like real paintings that I can use as inspirations for paintings. Love it!
Bought this years ago, now not working
sgranlund on 1/27/2017
Bought this years ago and deleted it for whatever reason, obviously not that impressive. I thought I would give it another try when I saw it featured in App Store. Re-downloaded it, tried to use it...can't get it to open. Deleted, re installed, still won't open on my current updated iPhone 6+ 128 gig. Tried 3x even rebooted phone, nada. Won't run. Just a black screen and nothing happens. Deleting again. Can only review based on how it worked for me
