PhotoArtistaHD Oil for iPad review

The idea of this program sounds very similar to Artist’s Touch, but whereas you have complete control over the creation of your artwork in that app, PhotoArtistaHD practically does the whole thing for you, which means the creative process is left to its bare minimum.

This doesn’t mean to say it’s a bad program – quite the contrary, you can choose from a vast selection of painting styles, and even have a few sliders to customise the effect. The results are always beautiful and very well rendered, but it does feel like you haven’t had a hand in its creation.

Unlike most other design apps, you can choose how large a file to work with, although this must be set before opening an image.

OUR VERDICT

Oddly, this is done through the Save menu: pick Settings and choose either Low, Medium or High, which offers a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536.
