The GREAT MISUNDERSTANDING: painting-programs have NOTHING TO DO with real painting. Digital painting is working with zero's and ones, nothing inbetween, without usable coïncidences. Everything follows the mathematical rules. Digital paintings are dead. It's tjev package without a content.

I've been using this app for a few days, I have to say. I'm impressed. This little something is really neat. I don't like use Photoshop a lot, it's complicated. Instead I use Portrait Painter everytime I wanna do something to my photos. Pretty easy and fast.

Though I'll appreciate it if more features will be added. I'll keep on using it.

I love this program. I've been using it after a little Photoshop'ing. Or, sometimes I just use it on its own. It does exactly what I want when I want that 'oil painting' style photo. Features are limited, but that's okay given the price for this great application.

Positive rating for very cool and powerful image processing. Points off in other important areas: a couple of crashes, memory leaks, app strips important photo EXIF data (date/time, camera, shutter, aperture, ISO, GPS, etc.), image rendered 3x for simple open and save, default iPhoto image save location is replacing original image deep inside (off-limits) iPhoto bundle. (:-( Mac UI seems unpolished; feels like pre-beta from new-to-Mac developer (using some non-Apple developer tools?), e.g. can't tell if current image has been saved, no in-app help, missing View and Window menus, prefs is (funky, resizable) modal sheet (rather than modeless window). App desperately needs a batch mode for easy unattended multi-image processing (otherwise time- and labor-intensive). Alas, company unresponsive to (pro software tester) feedback. If it was my app, I'd work very hard to make 1.0.3 (not 1.03) the fine app 1.0 could (should?) have been.

Even though I got Photoshop in my toolbox... I love those small apps that just make our everyday digital life easier. Portrait Painter does a very nice job - and does it fast. Though you can do what Portrait Painter does... in Photoshop - you can't do it no near as fast.

Great little app. Love it!

Half a year after purchasing the software... time for evaluation. I sometimes get carried away with the new software I buy, you know :)

So the question is... has Portrait Painter survived on my Mac?

Yes, indeed. I use it every week. It's not Photoshop (that I use everyday on work)... but when I get home and need to give an image an extra little something — I often turn to Portrait Painter, because it does the job in seconds. I do sometimes... though — use photoshop to add an extra touch to the images created with Portrait Painter.

Verdict 6 month after purchase: Still 4 stars.
