Mommy's Favorite Things: Corel Paint It! Review & Giveaway

Corel Paint It! Review & Giveaway



I like to edit photos to add a little more to them. I usually do some black and white with color, black and white, add borders and text. Sometimes I whiten teeth and sharpen up eyes and stuff. That's about as far as my skills go. But when I had the chance to review a paint program from Corel I jumped at the chance. You see this program Paint It! is a program where you can take ANY picture and turn it into a painting!!!



Here are some pictures I've done. I'll show a before and an after. 
I haven't used all the types of paintings yet. There's a pencil and a colored pencil painting that take up to 3 hours. I would do it overnight if I really wanted the painting, but it would take a while.
Impressionist Painting

Watercolor painting
Oil Painting
Modern painting
Pastel Painting
Illustration Painting
 
 
 It was real easy to do this program. In the video I hadn't figured out how to save it, but I have now and it's real easy. The only thing is this doesn't come with instructions so you have to figure some stuff out yourself, but that's not too difficult.

Fun for the entire family, Corel Paint it! gives you a whole new way to enjoy your photos. This photo painting software includes multiple painting styles, brushes and realistic effects that let you add a personal touch to any creative project. Much more than a photo-painting filter, Corel Paint it! relies on your input, letting you control the photo painting process while encouraging your creative spirit. Start and stop painting at any time, restore original details from the photo and add your own special touches. The result is a hand-painted portrait that’s sure to wow your friends and family.
Ideal for:
  • Any wall in your home or office
  • Scrapbooks and albums
  • Email and online sharing sites
  • Gift Giving 
I think this would be a perfect gift.
How would you like a 16X20 hanging on your wall that looked like a professional painting?
