Artist’s Touch for iPad review

Artist's Touch takes a completely different approach to artwork creation. You can start with a blank canvas, but it’s at its best when using an existing photograph as a template. Select one from your library and Artist’s Touch will reduce it to just its edges. That’s where the magic begins: take one of 11 available brushes, then rub your finger over the image. The original colours will appear smudged.

Use smaller brushes for the details and before long, you will have created what looks like an impressive piece of art. You can also apply different textures to your artwork and when you’re ready you can email it or share it on Twitter.

OUR VERDICT

Sadly, the artwork won’t be the same size as the photo: it will have been shrunk to the iPad’s native resolution of 1,024 x 768.
