Watercolour Japan

Have you heard of Waterlogue yet? In short, it’s an iOS app that lets you transform your photos into watercolour paintings. Had it not impressed Kris Atomic, a professional photographer, I might’ve thought it was a dumb idea. But it’s really very cool. And it takes less than five seconds for a “painting” to appear, which appeals to the instant gratificationer in me. Judge for yourself, but I think the quality is quite good!

Of course, the app works best if the original photos are clear and detailed. And keep in mind, too, that landscapes and flowers seem to work better than selfies. But for someone like me, with little artistic ability–and even less patience–it has been $2.99 well spent.
