I’ve just started learning how to paint watercolors, so I’ve gone in search of apps that give my photos the watercolor effect. Here are 3 good ones.
1. Popsicolor, $3
Allows you to pick 2 colors, and different kinds of washes, and then produces a watercolor with one color blending into the other. Effects include duotones, gradients, and dark and light spots.
2. Waterlogue, $4
Gives you multicolors, based on your original photo. Styles range from “luminous” to “soaked” to “blotted” (about a dozen in all) and also allow you to lighten or darken your image.
3. Glaze, free with in-app purchases to add styles
This is more a general painting app than specifically watercolor; however it does let you give your photos dozens of different painterly techniques or “glazes.”
