Long-awaited HD upgrade

I have been using Artist's Touch along with other tools to manipulate photos for over 18 months, and have always found it fun to use, achieving great results. The only real problem I had with the app was its iPad 1 resolution, and getting the work printed. This upgrade takes care of that nicely. All the tools are still there, and the functionality has remained as familiar as before.

Nitpicks and feature requests-- 1. I'd like to see a deeper zoom for very fine edits. 2. The largest scale of the brush strokes could stand to be much larger. This would allow the creation of an underpainting effect. 3. A carry-over problem from the previous version is the random resizing and transparency change when changing tools.

This is a welcome update.

Had no idea this was still available!!!

I loved this app back in the day! After an ios update had to switch to cleverpainter now this is back and cleverpainter is gone. I think people have the wrong idea of what this app does that’s why there’s so many low ratings. People are probably looking for the instant photo to paint apps. This is a kind of coloring book kind of app. It’s super fun and very relaxing. I love taking the time to paint my photos starting with the large brushes then the smaller ones to add a little detail to my painting. Just with there were more customizable settings. I dont like the random direction the strokes go. Hats off to the developers and thank you soo much for bringing this app back!!! I absolutely love using it and it brings back fond memories of my first iPad. Thank you so much!

Amazing App

One of the early photo apps and one of the most unique. It’s pivotal to my fine art photography and enables me to do amazing things that no other app can approximate. It was “down” for a while—I’m really glad that Artamata decided to reinvest in it and make it even better than before.
