Turn your photos into famous paintings ;)

Postby odklizec » Fri Apr 17, 2009 11:22 am

One of our valuable sponsors (Mediachance) just released new revolutionary software for turning photos into paintings, which are painted in the style of old masters! The software (Dynamic Auto Painter) is not just another kind of "one time to apply" image filter. It actually paint the images! You can see the painting progress and even modify the various aspects of the painting in a runtime.

The software is a real fun to use and the results are very nice and "realistic". I mean, you can recognize the used master's style. Aside the nice alternative to the traditional photo editing techniques, I see the main usability of this new software in masking heavy in-camera noise reduction. I mean, many cameras (unfortunately, including actual Ricohs) produce too plasticky and heave noise reduced JPEGs, which often look like water painted. So why not to turn them into a real water paint masterpiece? ;)

Here is a small taste of what you can do with it. For more examples see the the DAP page. I will add some more comments and examples once I get full version.

Looks fun but how do I get the code it asks for to run the trial software?

You can find some buy links at the end of page:
http://mediachance.com/dap/index.html#buy

The introductory price is just $35. I think it's fair price for such funny tool ;)

You should be able to run the trial version without any registration code. There will then be a text over the bottom of the resultant image just as in case of odklizec's samples. The registration code is good for getting rid of the text.

Thanks Orol but it still asks for a code.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure I understand your problem? Are you trying the Trial version or you already purchased and applied the registration code?

If you are in a Trial mode, there is displayed a registration button in the middle of the workspace. But it does not prevent you from using the DAP. The only two limitations are disabled "Settings" and watermark text at the bottom of the output image.

MAC version is in work. However, the same as other Mediachance programs, DAP exe will be wrapped in the Parallels. In other words, no native MAC version.

And here is my entry into the competition. It was done with AutoPainter Express, which is now available on the Mac in the AppStore for 4,99 EUR. Probably not as complete as the original, but with quite pleasing results (see below).
Best regards, Gerd
