How I applied the filter to my own photos:
1. I took some stunning images on a recent trip to the seaside and I wanted to turn them into something a little different. Not being very creative with an actual paintbrush, I typically turn my photos into wall art, but then I wanted something that looked more like a watercolour or an oil painting. I looked for a suitable app on my phone and found Sketch Guru, but there are plenty out there.
2. It was so easy to apply the filter once I’d chosen one I liked.
3. I then simply uploaded the new photo onto my Snapfish account.
4. I then chose a small 12×8” slim canvas, as I was not sure of the resolution. The watercolour filter I applied looks amazing! I would not recommend going any larger as the app I used reduced the resolution, but there might be better apps out there which would give you a better resolution.
5. It even inspired me to create another canvas with more of an oil-based filter. Now, all my visitors think I am an accomplished art collector. I am so thrilled with the outcome and can’t wait to find more photos to transform into paintings like this!
We’d love to see your canvas print creations!
