Snap Art can render hundreds of styles and media, such as oil paint, watercolor, pencil sketch, and newly added ones like crayon. It is easy to try different styles until you find the perfect look to capture the natural beauty of the subject.
Snap Art mimics the techniques of human artists, such as layered brush strokes and enhancement of important edges. Version 3 uses more refined stroke placement, making the subject natural and recognizable.
With Snap Art 3’s improved realism, portrait photographers can offer elegant paintings as a premium service. Once a Snap Art creation is printed on canvas and framed, it looks like a handcrafted work of art.
Ease of Use
Using Snap Art simply requires a creative idea, not hand-eye coordination or technical training. Simply browse the presets to find a style appropriate for your photo. You can tweak a few sliders to customize the look, but most of the time this is not necessary.
If you do want more control, the new detail mask lets you quickly mark areas where you want the subject to be clearer. This lets you make a portrait absolutely perfect for crucial jobs like wedding portraits.
The Snap Art 3 interface has been completely redesigned for better ease of use. All the presets are now in one place for easier browsing. The preview is also progressively rendered to give faster feedback.
