PhotoArtMaster is a standalone program that can be used to turn any digital image into a work of art in minutes. Create artworks of the following types: watercolour, oil, sketch, canvas and many more.
Split into three sections - Picture Central, Preparation Editor and Studio - PhotoArtMaster can be mastered very quickly. The best way is through experimentation.
The program opens in Picture Central, where both edited and unedited images are managed. They can be opened, viewed, resized and printed from here.
The Preparation Editor is used to crop, distort and rotate the image, and adjust the colour, brightness and contrast settings.
The real work takes place in the Studio, where thirteen tabbed 'effects' are available. Each effect picks out and highlights a specific element of the image.
Example effects are Bright Colour, Thick Edges, Pure Colour, Fine Detail and Blur Colour, and each effect creates eight choices for you to choose from.
Simply select the one you are most happy with, and then fine-tune it via the mixer, which provides access to various other commands: darken, lighten, tint, replace etc.
