App of the Day: AutoPainter 3

AutoPainter 3 will have you playing with all your photos, just to see what they look like at the end.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

AutoPainter 3 throws you in the deep end, perhaps assuming that you have used previous iterations of the app and know how it works; but, once you get in there and start playing, it's really fascinating to watch in action. It turns your photos into the painting styles of four different oil painters — Monet, Camille, d'Orcia and van Gogh. When you open the app, you can either take a photo or choose one from your roll; the paintbrush button allows you to add a detail mask for things like faces (you don't have to be too accurate here), and then you select which style you want. The app then paints it as you watch — it's quite enthralling and you'll probably find yourself playing with all your photos, just to see what they look like at the end.
