​Create masterpieces at the tap of your finger.
Visionist harnesses the power of computer vision using neural networks to create original artwork based on your images!

“App of the Week: Visionist Review - The most premium arty filters app we’ve seen – and one that provides more control than most.” - Stuff Magazine, December 2018

Visionist is super easy to use. Just select an image, optionally compose your shot, then choose a style. For people that like options, don’t let the simplicity fool you; there is an infinite number of possibilities. Each style is available in three different levels of abstraction. The style can be blended with the original image in a variety of different ways, and the style strength can be adjusted from 0% to 100%.

Without any in-app purchases, Visionist includes 10 different, fully functional styles (each in 3 different levels of abstraction). If you would like more styles, an additional 60 styles are available for a one-time in-app purchase. Each style is a unique neural network trained to various artwork.

Visionist adds additional features for images that have depth data. Typically images captured using the Portrait mode in the Camera app have depth data. Note that only devices with dual-lenses and the iPhone XR support capturing images in Portrait mode. Images with depth data are saved with depth data intact, so you can post them using Facebook’s new “3D Photo” option. The results will amaze your friends!

• Live style previews
• High-resolution output (4k resolution on modern devices, 3k on devices with A7 and A8 processors)
• The free version includes 10 styles with full functionality
• A one time In App purchase enables an additional 60 styles
• Every style has three levels of abstraction to choose from
• Each style is a neural network trained to different artwork
• Additional features for images with depth data; can be used in combination:
Focal point adjustment
Selective Color by depth
Mix with original by depth
Spotlight by depth
• Depth data is preserved in output, so the output works with Facebook’s 3D Photo feature
• The strength of the style may be adjusted from 0% to 100%
• The transfer mode of the stylized image composited with the original image has four options: Hard Light, Soft Light, Luminosity and Full
• Styles can be mixed: the current result mixed with the next style chosen indefinitely; allows the creation of original new styles
• Canvas prints may be ordered in the app
• Easy to use yet offers infinite possibilities

Amazing, Amazing!

It was obvious after spending just a few minutes with this app that I was totally in love with it. This app is going to replace more than a handful of other effect apps I am currently using, and in addition it adds a new depth and clarity to the processed images that does not exist with the other apps.

I applaud the developer for going with a single purchase model. This is the first thing I look at when downloading apps. If a developer opts for the subscription model I’ll just pass on the app. In this case I tried the app, and within 5 minutes I purchased the BUY button and I feel great about my purchase. Keep the amazing photo apps coming!!!

Limited as “free” app

If you are considering downloading this and using just the free features, it’s not worth it so don’t bother. A few limited choices given create way too many strokes/lines in the face, as if it enhances and multiplies facial creases and distorts your nose, as do apparently even some of the paid selections based on the preview. If you put each filter on to your face and try them one at a time, you will see each one of them looks like you have a dried mud mask on to varying degrees. With the free features, even adjusting the intensity, etc., of some of them still doesn’t make for a very attractive picture by sny strerch and doesn’t help in that regard. If you’re looking for some still life or inanimate object pictures, you might fare a little bit better because those weren’t as bad as human faces. Because I can’t get a decent attractive human picture out of it even with the limited choices, with all of them having deep strokes you can’t soften, I would say paying to unlock all the other features may or may not have those same problems if there is such a heavy emphasis on crinkling the face. I don’t think humans look very good with crinkled faces. Since you have to pay before you can unlock them and there is no trial for you to even test it out first, do so at your own risk.

Developer Response ,

Note that all of the portrait images (images with faces) we advertise were in-fact created using the free functionality. Several of the free styles don't add any strokes at all. You can in-fact soften the "deep strokes" by changing the composite mode to perhaps Soft Light or lowering the style power. We are confident you can definitely get good results with faces and for free. Please contact us at and we would be happy to assist.

Solid Version 1.0 - Keep Developing

Visionist has utility not found elsewhere on the App Store. The ability to create painterly effects to your photos, especially after unlocking the in app purchase, is second to none. The depth feature, which uses an iPhone’s portrait mode depth data as an additional map, opens up new creative avenues. But the app stops there.

There’s so much potential to explore, like being able to apply different degrees of painterly effects (or color or focus or brush direction) using the depth channel, but the app leaves this unexplored. A glaring limitation is that when zoomed in, you can’t scroll whatsoever.

This is an amazing version 1.0. Here’s hoping the development team will continue to explore its potential.
