Summary – Best? Obviously a subjective judgement lest you disagree. Photo painting is something I rarely do so my qualifications to judge are minimal. Have I looked at every program? Not even close. This post simply describes the program I’d be apt to use the next time I want to paint a photo – probably in a few years. Why did I do this series? Beats me; just curious.
My choice, if I had to pick just one photo-painting program?
It can create paintings, drawings & cartoons
It is simple yet powerful (watch the video tutorials first)
It is free!
PC only (but you Mac-folks know how to get around that)
Image from the camera
Roll mouse over for a FotoSketcher example
Different strokes for different folks….
Mixture of oil, watercolor, pastel, pencil, cartoon….
FotoSketcher examples – Photo followed by “art”

A short series summary –
Photo-art isn’t my cup of tea
The series was born of curiosity
After FotoSketcher, my 2nd choice is Painter Essentials
Flexible and powerful – with a painting emphasis
My 3rd choice would be Topaz’s Simplify
It does what I’d call digital-art
More so than painting
But its buZZ driven style
Does create interesting “art”
buZZ images usually get “like’s”
