Twelve virtual painters at your service to transform your photographs into paintings..

Virtual Painter is either a stand alone program or a group of similar plug-ins that alter an existing picture by making it look like it was painted or drawn in a certain style on various types of canvases. The quality of the images that you can make with Virtual Painter is extraordinary. Each of the filters does exactly what it is supposed to, and the results are extremely realistic looking.  The different canvases actually make it seem as though the paintings or drawings were done on those surfaces. 

The power of this program cannot be understated.  Anyone can use these filters to create great painted picture effects.
