PaintSnap creates a digital painting from your photo before your eyes, in a style inspired by elements of Impressionism. Every painting generated is unique - even with the same input photo and style, a slightly different painting is generated each time.

PaintSnap also generates a painting animation, which you can save as an MP4 video or animated GIF to your photo library.

You can choose from 5 different painting styles - Impressionist levels 0 through 4. Increasing the level will make the painting more impressionistic, and vice versa. The default is Level 1.

You have a choice between two types of painting animations: the painting creation animation, and the "infinite loop" painting animation. You can save the animation to your photo library as animated GIF or MP4 video.

By default, PaintSnap uses face detection to paint faces in more detail. You can turn this off in Settings for photos with no faces for slightly faster processing time.

Upgrade to PaintSnap Premium to remove the watermark from the painting, and to save the painting image in high resolution (2160px vs 1080px wide with free version). Users who purchased a previous paid version of PaintSnap will automatically be upgraded to PaintSnap Premium.

Device Requirements:
- iPhones: iPhone 6s or newer.
- iPads: iPad 6th gen or newer, iPad Air 3 or newer, or any iPad Pros.


- Painting image saved to your photo library is 1080px wide with free version, and 2160px wide with PaintSnap Premium.

- The painting animation video is 1080px wide when saved as an MP4 video, and 720px wide as an animated GIF. If you want to share an infinite loop video on Instagram, pick the video file type of MP4 since Instagram does not allow GIF's.

- PaintSnap still works while offline, so you can use it anywhere and anytime.

If you want to share a GIF painting animation with a friend using iMessage, go to your iPhone/iPad's settings and make sure that Settings->Messages->Low Quality Image Mode is turned OFF.
