Glaze turns your photos into paintings with your unique style. Select one of dozens of included styles and compare variations before sharing your image with friends or saving it for professional quality printing. Paint masks to control brush stroke placement and save with transparent backgrounds for layering. Create your own unique styles using the Workshop mode, allowing you to generate endless variations of the styles and blending styles together.

• Create beautiful paintings without the mess.
• Impress your friends with unique holiday cards.
• Create unique avatars and profile pictures.
• Save full-resolution images for poster prints, up to 21 megapixels.
• Combine results with other apps using transparency features.

Glaze's standard Studio mode is great for quickly generating a few versions of a painting and sharing or saving the results. The Workshop lets you explore a huge range of styles and variations to find the perfect fit for each image.

Load images from your library before applying styles from the sliding style bar. Compare styles by tapping on their style buttons. Share or save your final image with the button on the right side of the toolbar to the gallery, Facebook, Twitter, Email, or to other photo processing applications.

Paint a mask to restrict where brush strokes are placed using the Transparency Mask in-app purchase. Save images with transparent backgrounds so they can be precisely layered using compositing apps, retaining the detail of each individual brush stroke.

The Glaze Workshop allows you to create your own unique styles by generating variations and combinations of the included popular styles. Personal styles are controlled through a button palette which is saved and restored each time you use Glaze. Generate random new styles to expand the range of possibilities and mix the random styles on your palette.

Was great, now won't run

Used to be a fun app, and occasionally useful. However, since iOS 8, and despite upgrades said to fix the issues, Glaze just crashes every time while opening in my iPad Mini. Seriously needs fixing AND testing properly.

No longer saves images

I’ve used Glaze for years, but since upgrading to iOS 12 I get an error message saying “user has denied access” when I try to save an image. There is no pop up asking to grant access to photos or anything that allows you to grant access to photos in settings. It’s spoiled an excellent app. There is a workaround as you can email the images to yourself, but it’s a bit of a pain in the hole if you want to save multiple versions. There doesn’t appear to be a way to contact the developers either and their website is no longer in operation. It’s a shame as it was one of my favourite apps. It appears to have been abandoned, but someone is still happy to take the money for in app purchases. Most disappointed.
