Water color effect

Water color effect is a decorative one. Use it to make your photos look like water color paintings. This filter blurs and equalizes large parts of color areas with uniform color while keeping most contrasting transitions.

It goes without saying that the water color effect cannot compete with works of an artist. Still, it can be applied successfully if the photo contains few small elements.

Example of usage

  • Try applying this filter to bright holiday photos. As a result, you may turn the image into a great present for your relatives.
  • One more application field for this filter is creating backgrounds or holiday cards or scrapbooks. Any photo will look great on a rich background free from small details. (Note: You should possibly try this filter together with blur effect and different succession of operations.)
