Description
"With PaintCan, anybody can paint"™ PaintCan helps you paint beautiful artworks from your favorite photographs within minutes. PaintCan is not a painterly effect applied to your image—you really are the painter! But don't worry, anybody can do it. PaintCan helps you paint, with smart brushes that configure themselves based on the image you are painting on, so that you are free to explore your creativity, instead of configuring settings. So what are you waiting for? Create your first masterpiece today! Please rate and review the app to help us make it the best product we can. If you have issues, don't write a bad review, but contact us at paintcan@adobe.com and we will try to help. NOTE: As PaintCan is maturing, we look forward to adding new features based on your feedback. UPDATE: We've listened to you! The #1 requested feature is higher resolution output. We are working on this feature and hope to bring it to you in the near future. Connect with other PaintCan fans on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PaintCanApp, and share your favorite paintings with the hashtag #PaintCanApp FAQ: iPad vs. iPhone UI: ============= Due to the size difference between the devices, the interface for the iPhone is different from the iPad, but retains all of the most critical tools. In the future we will work to create a more similar interface for all devices based on user feedback and usage statistics. Image resolution: ============= Resolution of paintings doesn't depend on input image size, but on the device you're using. We currently support ~2x the display resolution of your device. We've printed PaintCan paintings from an iPad Mini on a 24"x18" canvas without pixelation artifacts. The best resolution can be obtained with the latest generation iDevice. Update: We're working on enabling high-res rendering of your paintings. Because this is very processor intensive, it will be performed on a server, so we don't drain your battery or lock up your device. Suggested Workflow: =============== PaintCan supports many workflows and really leaves you in control of how and where to paint. However, a good starting point is to cover the photo first roughly with large paint brushes (Background presets, available on iPad) and then add details where desired (Detail presets). If you added too much detail, simply go over it again with a background preset, or try one of the Extras presets to add or smooth textured areas. Most of all: Explore and have fun. Document size: =========== While the app itself is small (~10MB), the data it generates to function is closer to ~150MB (more for newer devices). This is to support the multiple levels of UNDO. Saving snapshots of paintings increases this data-size. You can always delete unused snapshots by going to the Start menu and selecting "Edit". Note: only your snapshots are automatically backed up to iCloud (not the app's cache). Selecting Colors (and other low level control): ================================ Colors are chosen automatically, based on where you paint. This is done intentionally to give you the easiest, quickest, and most successful painting experiences possible. In the future, we may support additional color choices.
Beautiful results

Although the app has limited tools, the artwork turns out beautifully, especially with the smaller tools and doing detailed up-close strokes. It’s fun, to boot!
PaintCan

PaintCan is a painting app that challenges you with your paintings. I was never really interested in painting myself until I got PaintCan. I highly recommend it to you! My sister and I are always glued to our screens when we tap on PainCan.
Fantastic!
by Carolyn Allen Artist on 2020/02/03 18:05
I love PaintCan, it’s what I need to turn my photos into paintings— to pull out the spirit of the art. Thank you Adobe team for your creative and technical expertise—- live your tools!!!
fantastic!

Please put this in Photoshop

A great app! Needs more tools.
Pitiful
by what do you want people on 2020/01/05 23:14
Well, if you love rubbing your finger over a preset pre-colored picture to make a blurred photo, this is your app. There is no exercise in creativity, no color choices, few photos that might be enhanced and good luck coloring in a photo that you already have shot that does not look just like the photo with the colors set. If you try to do anything it will look just like the photo, picture, with the same colors. What is the deal other than you want faded, blurry art work. Such a sad App. Such a waste of time!

More paint brush options. But I love how the density of the brush changes with the zoom in and out
Just what I was looking for.

Updated Review
by Lost Aussie on 2019/11/08 19:41
Adobe have fixed the image loading glitch for iPad - thank you! This is quite a basic painting app but nevertheless quite handy and easy to use. A few more brush options would be very welcome, especially a pencil or fine line!
Interesting Concept, but not quite a full-on painter's app
by A.T. Raine on 2019/11/07 11:54
This app has cool effects, but as far as painting apps go I would've expected more from Adobe. More brushes, more control over the colors and the way they blend would be nice. That said, despite not meeting my expectations, this app does have its place - these limitations can make it possible to play around more freely, and if you sit back and observe you might even pick up a few techniques. Because of that I think it's great for whenever you get "artist's block", but if you're looking for a painting app in the more conventional sense, you might look elsewhere.
Suggestion but great!!
by Most Beautiful song on 2019/11/03 16:02
I'm veeeeeerrryyyyy happy with this app, and I'm a kid! The only thing I would suggest is an animal mode. I'm trying to do a painting of me and my dog in this app and I just can't get her quite as good as I want her to be but I get pretty darn close! I love how there are no ads either. My mom bought this one app that was kinda like this but way worse and every time you hit a button it played an add, it sucked. This is my favorite picture editing app and I will never stop using it :) To the makers of this app, keep making more of these cause it's amazing! I'd be pretty surprised if there were any bad comments :)
Very simple but pleasant
by DoDrvr on 2019/10/18 16:20
By no means is this your own painting as suggested in the description. However. If you would like to see an example of how you might abstractly paint something (digitally). This provides a simple well thought out UI for you to do just that. I enjoyed it for a couple minutes and will continue to enjoy it again in the future. I took a painting I had created on Fresco and ran it through this program. It gave me a plethora of ideas for my next project. Thanks for your work on this simple little paint program.
Nothing like it
by beinsafe on 2019/10/15 02:09
I have adobe creative suite and still use this app in addition... it’s pretty easy to make cool stuff with this tool 😎
WONDERFUL APPLICATION TO CREATE IMPRESSIONISTIC PAINTINGS
by Mgurdus on 2019/09/12 20:40
I use either my Apple Pencil or my finger to create strong artistic works of art. I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and PAINT CAN is the most intuitive and easiest application to create works suitable for framing. I must admit that I am completely hooked on this program. I say to everyone...no questions, just give this a try!

More!!
by Muyenga430 on 2019/08/14 12:05
I like the premise but it is very limited if you are wanting more creative license. I would love more control, more brush choices! Honestly, I expected more from Adobe. I would even pay for it.
Awesome Fun and Creativity
by RandWall on 2019/08/10 17:39
I think PaintCan is great for novice or pros. I enjoy experimenting with the brushes and seeing what I can come up with. A person can actually get quite detailed in the manner they paint if they take care to learn different methods for applying the brushes, it can become quite addicting and a lot of fun! But I must agree with another comment I read here, and that is I wish there were more brush effects and styles and maybe even a way to make your own? None the less the App is still pretty darn awesome!
Love it!
by cleonard54 on 2019/07/25 19:42
I am also one who wishes for a color chooser and fine line detail. Then it would be perfect!

Great painting app
by SanderinaD on 2019/07/10 13:22
As an artist and photographer this really lets You paint not just use filters. It took me a while to figure out but lots of fun. Downside: needs to have more brushes , also a good tutorial would help. All in all a great app!
Love PaintCan

I just love that it’s SO GLOSSY! Awesome to have, use, and play with. Young kids can learn how to hold a pencil, while playing on a specific electronic. It also keeps your fingers from burning.
God awful app
by Universe Observer on 2019/06/24 00:38
Terrible UI and controls. Everything is applied to the entire picture with the exception of a msk. No layers to work with. No real brush to paint touch or fee. This is not a professional tool.
My Apple Pencil started working and I love this app!
by Artist 4 Life on 2019/06/14 22:29
The only request I have is more brushes, a better brush with fine line for details, a color picker, more redos and layer capabilities. The water color effects are spot on! I will be using this app a lot. This app is on it’s way to pro applications, please upgrade. The way it is designed now I will have to do work here and fly it into procreate to get what I desire. It would be wonderful to not have do that. Thank you for designing an app that facilitates great watercolor affects. I have been looking for an app that does this for my digital illustration technique and you guys nailed it! My main medium is watercolor, so this is great for my digital illustration tool box 💙👩🏻‍🎨💙
One of the best for painterly effects
by Well its just me on 2019/05/28 04:18
I have tried many apps that let you create painting effects from photos, and Adobe Paintcan remains one of my favorites. You have a great deal of control over the final results, because you paint the effects over the photo yourself. It is well worth your time to experiment and learn what works best for you when using this app. I wish that Adobe would add some new styles perhaps, but it seems unlikely, since these styles have been set for many years by now.
Functional and Intuitive
by Louiedogg22 on 2019/04/23 08:58
This is an app that performs exactly to its specifications.

A really nice app
by HarrisonMylesG on 2019/03/14 04:16
This is really cool! I'm actually using it to make a huge three section print for my wall. Would like better resolution though. So easy to use but need to try on iPad for full feature set. Would highly recommend over anything else for quick and easy, even over Photoshop. I wonder though what is happening with the app since it hasn't been updated in a while and it is the only one by Adobe Labs (which is part of the actually Adobe comoany). Overall cool easy app with great results.

Really Great Tool
by MatthewAV on 2018/09/06 06:36
Adobe created it, though, and we know what that means......we are guinea pigs for the developers Adobe is trying to fire. PaintCan hasn’t updated it in more than one year. So, Adobe will probably abandon it and bloat some other app with some of the features from PaintCan. By that time, Adobe Soul Eaters, I mean “managers”, will finally have enough documentation to fire the banished developers they put on the empty floor of an obscure building and said “this is to give you freedom to create whatever projects you love! And by the way, you don’t have to come to staff meetings anymore.” <door-click>

I really enjoy this app. It's so much fun for both pro and casual artists. But recently I deleted it accidentally, then every time I try to download it again, "unable to download" pops up :((

Very easy to use - Can transform photos (even bad, out of focus ones) into portraits for canvas.
Lots of fun
by Kimheath53 on 2017/12/08 02:30
I really like this new app. It's amazing to see your photography turn into a painting. Somehow it scans your picture, and then you use different brushes to paint it. It starts out as just shadows, you zoom it in to make more definite lines. Lot's of fun. kimh
Too Much Fun
by WHK48 on 2017/11/06 17:54
I have and use various photo and drawing apps. This one is easy and the most fun. Take a few minutes to watch the short tutorials found in the settings and you will have all the expertise needed to produce and save some great art.
Addictively fun!

I made a deviantART account, but I am not an artist. I like to look at art though. Now with this app I can use photos of mine and make them into works of art so I can post on the site with beautiful images . Thank you so much paint can 🎨❤️

Awesome.
by drewruth1992 on 2017/04/12 20:20
I've downloaded MANY photo-to-paint apps and none of them really work for me as well as PaintCan. It gives you a level of control that you just can't get in other apps. It is also very handy for artists that want to visualize paint strokes for actual, real-life paintings. It's also fun to throw a photo into a secondary photo editing app and adjust things like color saturation, focus, etc and then use PaintCan to make an even more stylized and unique digital painting. Adobe, you've done it again. Great job! 👊🏼
Great fun!

In just a few minutes and a few strokes of my finger what would normally be a rather bland photo is transformed in to an interesting masterpiece to say the least. With fast load to and from camera roll and no annoying adds It doesn't get any better than this.
Awesome!!

I don't get it
by SlamItIInMe on 2017/03/02 21:03
If your goal is to turn your pictures into impressionistic "art work" go for it. If on the other had you would like to simply stylize your photos while keeping the basic form of those photos this app may disappoint.
PaintCan Rocks! Now if I could access my Lightroom libraries
by sithrat on 2017/02/27 04:28
How much fun and so easy to use
You can paint
by MPreviews on 2017/02/23 22:12
This app is wonderful. Every aspect is innovation and fun. No restrictions on use, tools, pages, and saving. In fact program goes a long way toward conversion and sharing of files. The application takes an image for an input field. And you the user takes this starting point, say a photo of your pet, and enables you to make an image that looks as if it were painted by a master painter using gobs of ink, knives, forks, finger, toes and brushes with an infinite color pallet. This is not a fixed convert to art function, as has been available to convert a photo to,posterize, cartoon, etc. This prices uis interactive . The output depends on quality if input and the steps and choices you make. The final out come us not pre determined. You make it. Get this, try it, take a demo if two, try it again.i think you'll love this.. I am a newbie, never write much, and this app is great. The ball travels straight and true. The bounce , English, and side angle result are amazing! You can get matches easily and the community are great people. I wish the chat ability was enhanced?
Great introduction to painting
by apluser5442 on 2017/02/17 15:15
This app is like a combination paint and coloring book. I find it helpful in understanding the basic principle of painting and brushes. I quickly went on to use the manual brush settings, the final result is much better. They need to add a color setting as well, in case you want to add more color to your painting.
Fun app

I love it. I am a painter and it's fun to use this app to see if an image might make an interesting painting or not. It's great because you can choose where to be loose and where to be tight in the image. This helps for leading a viewers eye through the image just like a real painting. Please, keep updating this app. It's really cool, and fun to use.

Ok little app
by That guy tu on 2016/12/29 07:25
This is a fun app to play with. There are other that sadly do it better. Kind of a shocker because this is from Adobe. They make in my opinion the best photo editing software. So it puzzles me why they didn't add the things that make this just ok. There needs to be adjustments to fine tune the brushes. Maybe different choices of brushes too. Hopefully they take these suggestions into consideration on the next revision because this has the potential to be a really good app.
Lots of fun !

Just installed..... 4 hours ago! Having so much fun with it I lost track of time! It is possible to take even the most boring images and breathe life into them with the tools this app provides. All that is required is a little imagination! For the artists out there here's an app to bring out your inner child! For the rest of us we can make beautiful images too! Adobe did an excellent job with this app. I am looking forward to the additional features and tools the updates will bring.
Have been waiting for this

Instant gratification
by Suzscribbles on 2016/11/02 23:45
This app is super fun. Take any photo and watch amazing results appear with just a few taps and swipes. You get to decide how detailed or impressionistic you want in your painting. It's really interesting to experiment. Yes, it does hang up and get stuck when switching back and forth in applications, and occasionally when choosing a tool, your photo suddenly jumps off screen and out of reach. But these are minor complaints and may be fixed later by Adobe. I took some photos of friends or pets from Facebook and had great fun turning them into easy digital "paintings". They look beautiful with all the texture and painterly marks and rich colors. Try it!
This app is FUN!!!!
by brett71121 on 2016/10/31 04:44

The only request I have is more brushes, a better brush with fine line for details, a color picker, more redos and layer capabilities. The water color effects are spot on! I will be using this app a lot. This app is on it’s way to pro applications, please upgrade. The way it is designed now I will have to do work here and fly it into procreate to get what I desire. It would be wonderful to not have do that. Thank you for designing an app that facilitates great watercolor affects. I have been looking for an app that does this for my digital illustration technique and you guys nailed it! My main medium is watercolor, so this is great for my digital illustration tool box 💙👩🏻‍🎨💙
Suggestion but great!!
by Most Beautiful song on 2019/11/03 16:02
I'm veeeeeerrryyyyy happy with this app, and I'm a kid! The only thing I would suggest is an animal mode. I'm trying to do a painting of me and my dog in this app and I just can't get her quite as good as I want her to be but I get pretty darn close! I love how there are no ads either. My mom bought this one app that was kinda like this but way worse and every time you hit a button it played an add, it sucked. This is my favorite picture editing app and I will never stop using it :) To the makers of this app, keep making more of these cause it's amazing! I'd be pretty surprised if there were any bad comments :)
One of the best for painterly effects
by Well its just me on 2019/05/28 04:18
I have tried many apps that let you create painting effects from photos, and Adobe Paintcan remains one of my favorites. You have a great deal of control over the final results, because you paint the effects over the photo yourself. It is well worth your time to experiment and learn what works best for you when using this app. I wish that Adobe would add some new styles perhaps, but it seems unlikely, since these styles have been set for many years by now.
Awesome Fun and Creativity
by RandWall on 2019/08/10 17:39
I think PaintCan is great for novice or pros. I enjoy experimenting with the brushes and seeing what I can come up with. A person can actually get quite detailed in the manner they paint if they take care to learn different methods for applying the brushes, it can become quite addicting and a lot of fun! But I must agree with another comment I read here, and that is I wish there were more brush effects and styles and maybe even a way to make your own? None the less the App is still pretty darn awesome!
WONDERFUL APPLICATION TO CREATE IMPRESSIONISTIC PAINTINGS
by Mgurdus on 2019/09/12 20:40
I use either my Apple Pencil or my finger to create strong artistic works of art. I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and PAINT CAN is the most intuitive and easiest application to create works suitable for framing. I must admit that I am completely hooked on this program. I say to everyone...no questions, just give this a try!
Interesting Concept, but not quite a full-on painter's app
by A.T. Raine on 2019/11/07 11:54
This app has cool effects, but as far as painting apps go I would've expected more from Adobe. More brushes, more control over the colors and the way they blend would be nice. That said, despite not meeting my expectations, this app does have its place - these limitations can make it possible to play around more freely, and if you sit back and observe you might even pick up a few techniques. Because of that I think it's great for whenever you get "artist's block", but if you're looking for a painting app in the more conventional sense, you might look elsewhere.
A really nice app
by HarrisonMylesG on 2019/03/14 04:16
This is really cool! I'm actually using it to make a huge three section print for my wall. Would like better resolution though. So easy to use but need to try on iPad for full feature set. Would highly recommend over anything else for quick and easy, even over Photoshop. I wonder though what is happening with the app since it hasn't been updated in a while and it is the only one by Adobe Labs (which is part of the actually Adobe comoany). Overall cool easy app with great results.
Pitiful
by what do you want people on 2020/01/05 23:14
Well, if you love rubbing your finger over a preset pre-colored picture to make a blurred photo, this is your app. There is no exercise in creativity, no color choices, few photos that might be enhanced and good luck coloring in a photo that you already have shot that does not look just like the photo with the colors set. If you try to do anything it will look just like the photo, picture, with the same colors. What is the deal other than you want faded, blurry art work. Such a sad App. Such a waste of time!
Very simple but pleasant
by DoDrvr on 2019/10/18 16:20
By no means is this your own painting as suggested in the description. However. If you would like to see an example of how you might abstractly paint something (digitally). This provides a simple well thought out UI for you to do just that. I enjoyed it for a couple minutes and will continue to enjoy it again in the future. I took a painting I had created on Fresco and ran it through this program. It gave me a plethora of ideas for my next project. Thanks for your work on this simple little paint program.
Too Much Fun
by WHK48 on 2017/11/06 17:54
I have and use various photo and drawing apps. This one is easy and the most fun. Take a few minutes to watch the short tutorials found in the settings and you will have all the expertise needed to produce and save some great art.
I really like it
by LEECEY123589428 on 2017/08/05 21:08
I made a deviantART account, but I am not an artist. I like to look at art though. Now with this app I can use photos of mine and make them into works of art so I can post on the site with beautiful images . Thank you so much paint can 🎨❤️
Lots of fun
by Kimheath53 on 2017/12/08 02:30
I really like this new app. It's amazing to see your photography turn into a painting. Somehow it scans your picture, and then you use different brushes to paint it. It starts out as just shadows, you zoom it in to make more definite lines. Lot's of fun. kimh
PaintCan
by Agatha peeper on 2020/02/10 23:50
PaintCan is a painting app that challenges you with your paintings. I was never really interested in painting myself until I got PaintCan. I highly recommend it to you! My sister and I are always glued to our screens when we tap on PainCan.
Love it but...
by Charkle lll on 2018/03/02 07:06
I really enjoy this app. It's so much fun for both pro and casual artists. But recently I deleted it accidentally, then every time I try to download it again, "unable to download" pops up :((
Updated Review
by Lost Aussie on 2019/11/08 19:41
Adobe have fixed the image loading glitch for iPad - thank you! This is quite a basic painting app but nevertheless quite handy and easy to use. A few more brush options would be very welcome, especially a pencil or fine line!
Move over Picasso
by SlickNick2313 on 2017/05/30 22:02
This is still one of my favorite apps when I take a beautiful picture and I want to do something creative with it!
Really Great Tool
by MatthewAV on 2018/09/06 06:36
Adobe created it, though, and we know what that means......we are guinea pigs for the developers Adobe is trying to fire. PaintCan hasn’t updated it in more than one year. So, Adobe will probably abandon it and bloat some other app with some of the features from PaintCan. By that time, Adobe Soul Eaters, I mean “managers”, will finally have enough documentation to fire the banished developers they put on the empty floor of an obscure building and said “this is to give you freedom to create whatever projects you love! And by the way, you don’t have to come to staff meetings anymore.” <door-click>

Excellent Transformation App
by Jedidath on 2017/09/10 01:48
This fun App is easy to learn, but every time you use it you will find something new. Start with a halfway-decent photo and end up with a piece of Art.
Too good too be true!!!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤯🤯🤯👉🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
by Supa_Fun123 on 2019/06/27 15:08
I just love that it’s SO GLOSSY! Awesome to have, use, and play with. Young kids can learn how to hold a pencil, while playing on a specific electronic. It also keeps your fingers from burning.
Beautiful results
by madcopygirl on 2020/02/25 05:14
Although the app has limited tools, the artwork turns out beautifully, especially with the smaller tools and doing detailed up-close strokes. It’s fun, to boot!
Fantastic!
by Carolyn Allen Artist on 2020/02/03 18:05
I love PaintCan, it’s what I need to turn my photos into paintings— to pull out the spirit of the art. Thank you Adobe team for your creative and technical expertise—- live your tools!!!
Easy To Use
by Mac&Apple. on 2017/09/25 13:04
This app is easy to use and makes a lovely quick painterly version of your photos!
Great painting app
by SanderinaD on 2019/07/10 13:22
As an artist and photographer this really lets You paint not just use filters. It took me a while to figure out but lots of fun. Downside: needs to have more brushes , also a good tutorial would help. All in all a great app!
Wonderful!
by lostcld on 2018/08/11 20:15
The best paint app out there. Very professional and leaves a lot of room for creativity. There’s a small learning curve but overall, a very easy app to master.

Really nice way to smooth out stress, simply turning a photo to a painting with a few strokes of the fingers. Gives a nice perspective to photos
Perfection made Simple

THE BEST app I have come across to do what it does with little effort. No complicated techniques or tricks. A straight and to the point tool.

Very easy to use - Can transform photos (even bad, out of focus ones) into portraits for canvas.

Terrible UI and controls. Everything is applied to the entire picture with the exception of a msk. No layers to work with. No real brush to paint touch or fee. This is not a professional tool.

Description
"With PaintCan, anybody can paint"™ PaintCan helps you paint beautiful artworks from your favorite photographs within minutes. PaintCan is not a painterly effect applied to your image—you really are the painter! But don't worry, anybody can do it. PaintCan helps you paint, with smart brushes that configure themselves based on the image you are painting on, so that you are free to explore your creativity, instead of configuring settings. So what are you waiting for? Create your first masterpiece today! Please rate and review the app to help us make it the best product we can. If you have issues, don't write a bad review, but contact us at paintcan@adobe.com and we will try to help. NOTE: As PaintCan is maturing, we look forward to adding new features based on your feedback. UPDATE: We've listened to you! The #1 requested feature is higher resolution output. We are working on this feature and hope to bring it to you in the near future. Connect with other PaintCan fans on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PaintCanApp, and share your favorite paintings with the hashtag #PaintCanApp FAQ: iPad vs. iPhone UI: ============= Due to the size difference between the devices, the interface for the iPhone is different from the iPad, but retains all of the most critical tools. In the future we will work to create a more similar interface for all devices based on user feedback and usage statistics. Image resolution: ============= Resolution of paintings doesn't depend on input image size, but on the device you're using. We currently support ~2x the display resolution of your device. We've printed PaintCan paintings from an iPad Mini on a 24"x18" canvas without pixelation artifacts. The best resolution can be obtained with the latest generation iDevice. Update: We're working on enabling high-res rendering of your paintings. Because this is very processor intensive, it will be performed on a server, so we don't drain your battery or lock up your device. Suggested Workflow: =============== PaintCan supports many workflows and really leaves you in control of how and where to paint. However, a good starting point is to cover the photo first roughly with large paint brushes (Background presets, available on iPad) and then add details where desired (Detail presets). If you added too much detail, simply go over it again with a background preset, or try one of the Extras presets to add or smooth textured areas. Most of all: Explore and have fun. Document size: =========== While the app itself is small (~10MB), the data it generates to function is closer to ~150MB (more for newer devices). This is to support the multiple levels of UNDO. Saving snapshots of paintings increases this data-size. You can always delete unused snapshots by going to the Start menu and selecting "Edit". Note: only your snapshots are automatically backed up to iCloud (not the app's cache). Selecting Colors (and other low level control): ================================ Colors are chosen automatically, based on where you paint. This is done intentionally to give you the easiest, quickest, and most successful painting experiences possible. In the future, we may support additional color choices.

I have tried many apps that let you create painting effects from photos, and Adobe Paintcan remains one of my favorites. You have a great deal of control over the final results, because you paint the effects over the photo yourself. It is well worth your time to experiment and learn what works best for you when using this app. I wish that Adobe would add some new styles perhaps, but it seems unlikely, since these styles have been set for many years by now.

A really nice app
by HarrisonMylesG on 2019/03/14 04:16
This is really cool! I'm actually using it to make a huge three section print for my wall. Would like better resolution though. So easy to use but need to try on iPad for full feature set. Would highly recommend over anything else for quick and easy, even over Photoshop. I wonder though what is happening with the app since it hasn't been updated in a while and it is the only one by Adobe Labs (which is part of the actually Adobe comoany). Overall cool easy app with great results.

by MatthewAV on 2018/09/06 06:36
Adobe created it, though, and we know what that means......we are guinea pigs for the developers Adobe is trying to fire. PaintCan hasn’t updated it in more than one year. So, Adobe will probably abandon it and bloat some other app with some of the features from PaintCan. By that time, Adobe Soul Eaters, I mean “managers”, will finally have enough documentation to fire the banished developers they put on the empty floor of an obscure building and said “this is to give you freedom to create whatever projects you love! And by the way, you don’t have to come to staff meetings anymore.” <door-click>

I really like this new app. It's amazing to see your photography turn into a painting. Somehow it scans your picture, and then you use different brushes to paint it. It starts out as just shadows, you zoom it in to make more definite lines. Lot's of fun. kimh
Too Much Fun
by WHK48 on 2017/11/06 17:54
I have and use various photo and drawing apps. This one is easy and the most fun. Take a few minutes to watch the short tutorials found in the settings and you will have all the expertise needed to produce and save some great art.

by drewruth1992 on 2017/04/12 20:20
I've downloaded MANY photo-to-paint apps and none of them really work for me as well as PaintCan. It gives you a level of control that you just can't get in other apps. It is also very handy for artists that want to visualize paint strokes for actual, real-life paintings. It's also fun to throw a photo into a secondary photo editing app and adjust things like color saturation, focus, etc and then use PaintCan to make an even more stylized and unique digital painting. Adobe, you've done it again. Great job! 👊🏼
Great fun!

In just a few minutes and a few strokes of my finger what would normally be a rather bland photo is transformed in to an interesting masterpiece to say the least. With fast load to and from camera roll and no annoying adds It doesn't get any better than this.
Awesome!!

Great painting app!! Not filters but actual painting. Nice results!
I don't get it
by SlamItIInMe on 2017/03/02 21:03
If your goal is to turn your pictures into impressionistic "art work" go for it. If on the other had you would like to simply stylize your photos while keeping the basic form of those photos this app may disappoint.
PaintCan Rocks! Now if I could access my Lightroom libraries
by sithrat on 2017/02/27 04:28
How much fun and so easy to use
You can paint
by MPreviews on 2017/02/23 22:12
This app is wonderful. Every aspect is innovation and fun. No restrictions on use, tools, pages, and saving. In fact program goes a long way toward conversion and sharing of files. The application takes an image for an input field. And you the user takes this starting point, say a photo of your pet, and enables you to make an image that looks as if it were painted by a master painter using gobs of ink, knives, forks, finger, toes and brushes with an infinite color pallet. This is not a fixed convert to art function, as has been available to convert a photo to,posterize, cartoon, etc. This prices uis interactive . The output depends on quality if input and the steps and choices you make. The final out come us not pre determined. You make it. Get this, try it, take a demo if two, try it again.i think you'll love this.. I am a newbie, never write much, and this app is great. The ball travels straight and true. The bounce , English, and side angle result are amazing! You can get matches easily and the community are great people. I wish the chat ability was enhanced?
Great introduction to painting
by apluser5442 on 2017/02/17 15:15
This app is like a combination paint and coloring book. I find it helpful in understanding the basic principle of painting and brushes. I quickly went on to use the manual brush settings, the final result is much better. They need to add a color setting as well, in case you want to add more color to your painting.
Fun app

I love it. I am a painter and it's fun to use this app to see if an image might make an interesting painting or not. It's great because you can choose where to be loose and where to be tight in the image. This helps for leading a viewers eye through the image just like a real painting. Please, keep updating this app. It's really cool, and fun to use.

A Great New Tool

Ok little app
by That guy tu on 2016/12/29 07:25
This is a fun app to play with. There are other that sadly do it better. Kind of a shocker because this is from Adobe. They make in my opinion the best photo editing software. So it puzzles me why they didn't add the things that make this just ok. There needs to be adjustments to fine tune the brushes. Maybe different choices of brushes too. Hopefully they take these suggestions into consideration on the next revision because this has the potential to be a really good app.
Lots of fun !

Just installed..... 4 hours ago! Having so much fun with it I lost track of time! It is possible to take even the most boring images and breathe life into them with the tools this app provides. All that is required is a little imagination! For the artists out there here's an app to bring out your inner child! For the rest of us we can make beautiful images too! Adobe did an excellent job with this app. I am looking forward to the additional features and tools the updates will bring.
Have been waiting for this

I absolutely love this app on all devices. IPhone 7, iPad Mini, iPad Pro, & Regular iPad of my sons ive tested. Just dont even think about it but do recommend taking 10 minutes to go thru the tutorial within the app settings page. Enjoy and keep up the greater work Adobe!!!
Love it

Instant gratification
by Suzscribbles on 2016/11/02 23:45
This app is super fun. Take any photo and watch amazing results appear with just a few taps and swipes. You get to decide how detailed or impressionistic you want in your painting. It's really interesting to experiment. Yes, it does hang up and get stuck when switching back and forth in applications, and occasionally when choosing a tool, your photo suddenly jumps off screen and out of reach. But these are minor complaints and may be fixed later by Adobe. I took some photos of friends or pets from Facebook and had great fun turning them into easy digital "paintings". They look beautiful with all the texture and painterly marks and rich colors. Try it!
This app is FUN!!!!
by brett71121 on 2016/10/31 04:44
This app has been a lot of fun and I love seeing what different combinations can achieve with different images. Very well done!
My Apple Pencil started working and I love this app!
by Artist 4 Life on 2019/06/14 22:29
The only request I have is more brushes, a better brush with fine line for details, a color picker, more redos and layer capabilities. The water color effects are spot on! I will be using this app a lot. This app is on it’s way to pro applications, please upgrade. The way it is designed now I will have to do work here and fly it into procreate to get what I desire. It would be wonderful to not have do that. Thank you for designing an app that facilitates great watercolor affects. I have been looking for an app that does this for my digital illustration technique and you guys nailed it! My main medium is watercolor, so this is great for my digital illustration tool box 💙👩🏻‍🎨💙
Suggestion but great!!
by Most Beautiful song on 2019/11/03 16:02
I'm veeeeeerrryyyyy happy with this app, and I'm a kid! The only thing I would suggest is an animal mode. I'm trying to do a painting of me and my dog in this app and I just can't get her quite as good as I want her to be but I get pretty darn close! I love how there are no ads either. My mom bought this one app that was kinda like this but way worse and every time you hit a button it played an add, it sucked. This is my favorite picture editing app and I will never stop using it :) To the makers of this app, keep making more of these cause it's amazing! I'd be pretty surprised if there were any bad comments :)
One of the best for painterly effects
by Well its just me on 2019/05/28 04:18
I have tried many apps that let you create painting effects from photos, and Adobe Paintcan remains one of my favorites. You have a great deal of control over the final results, because you paint the effects over the photo yourself. It is well worth your time to experiment and learn what works best for you when using this app. I wish that Adobe would add some new styles perhaps, but it seems unlikely, since these styles have been set for many years by now.
Awesome Fun and Creativity
by RandWall on 2019/08/10 17:39
I think PaintCan is great for novice or pros. I enjoy experimenting with the brushes and seeing what I can come up with. A person can actually get quite detailed in the manner they paint if they take care to learn different methods for applying the brushes, it can become quite addicting and a lot of fun! But I must agree with another comment I read here, and that is I wish there were more brush effects and styles and maybe even a way to make your own? None the less the App is still pretty darn awesome!
WONDERFUL APPLICATION TO CREATE IMPRESSIONISTIC PAINTINGS
by Mgurdus on 2019/09/12 20:40
I use either my Apple Pencil or my finger to create strong artistic works of art. I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and PAINT CAN is the most intuitive and easiest application to create works suitable for framing. I must admit that I am completely hooked on this program. I say to everyone...no questions, just give this a try!
Interesting Concept, but not quite a full-on painter's app
by A.T. Raine on 2019/11/07 11:54
This app has cool effects, but as far as painting apps go I would've expected more from Adobe. More brushes, more control over the colors and the way they blend would be nice. That said, despite not meeting my expectations, this app does have its place - these limitations can make it possible to play around more freely, and if you sit back and observe you might even pick up a few techniques. Because of that I think it's great for whenever you get "artist's block", but if you're looking for a painting app in the more conventional sense, you might look elsewhere.
A really nice app

Pitiful
by what do you want people on 2020/01/05 23:14
Well, if you love rubbing your finger over a preset pre-colored picture to make a blurred photo, this is your app. There is no exercise in creativity, no color choices, few photos that might be enhanced and good luck coloring in a photo that you already have shot that does not look just like the photo with the colors set. If you try to do anything it will look just like the photo, picture, with the same colors. What is the deal other than you want faded, blurry art work. Such a sad App. Such a waste of time!
Very simple but pleasant
by DoDrvr on 2019/10/18 16:20
By no means is this your own painting as suggested in the description. However. If you would like to see an example of how you might abstractly paint something (digitally). This provides a simple well thought out UI for you to do just that. I enjoyed it for a couple minutes and will continue to enjoy it again in the future. I took a painting I had created on Fresco and ran it through this program. It gave me a plethora of ideas for my next project. Thanks for your work on this simple little paint program.

I have the Adobe PaintCan App, but don’t have all the samples. How do I download earlier versions? elleskibo

Awesome effects with my photographs. Also, Spurs me on to paint with paints. You need to download this app!
God awful app

Terrible UI and controls. Everything is applied to the entire picture with the exception of a msk. No layers to work with. No real brush to paint touch or fee. This is not a professional tool.
Great Paint App

I use this app as a base for most of my digital work. Love it.
