App Description

Glaze turns your photos into paintings with your unique style. Select one of dozens of included styles and compare variations before sharing your image with friends or saving it for professional quality printing. Paint masks to control brush stroke placement and save with transparent backgrounds for layering. Create your own unique styles using the Workshop mode, allowing you to generate endless variations of the styles and blending styles together.

• Create beautiful paintings without the mess.
• Impress your friends with unique holiday cards.
• Create unique avatars and profile pictures.
• Save full-resolution images for poster prints, up to 21 megapixels.
• Combine results with other apps using transparency features.

Glaze's standard Studio mode is great for quickly generating a few versions of a painting and sharing or saving the results. The Workshop lets you explore a huge range of styles and variations to find the perfect fit for each image.

Load images from your library before applying styles from the sliding style bar. Compare styles by tapping on their style buttons. Share or save your final image with the button on the right side of the toolbar to the gallery, Facebook, Twitter, Email, or to other photo processing applications.

Paint a mask to restrict where brush strokes are placed using the Transparency Mask in-app purchase. Save images with transparent backgrounds so they can be precisely layered using compositing apps, retaining the detail of each individual brush stroke.

The Glaze Workshop allows you to create your own unique styles by generating variations and combinations of the included popular styles. Personal styles are controlled through a button palette which is saved and restored each time you use Glaze. Generate random new styles to expand the range of possibilities and mix the random styles on your palette.
