Having spent many years of my life trying to draw, I’ve come to accept that I’m never going to be a comic book illustrator, as much as I’d love to be. Apps like ToonPAINT go some way to repairing my bruised ego, however. It’s an app that allows users to create cartoon images from their own photos.

Once the image is imported, the app converts it to a sketch format and opens up the possibility of coloring in the photo. Using some fancy image processing algorithms and a series of different colors, ToonPAINT opens ordinary photos up to the world of the graphic novel look. It’s all very easy to do but with some pretty cool results.

It’s a neat app and doubles up as a great way to entertain kids who never fail to love coloring pictures in.

ToonPAINT is normally priced at $1.99 but until November 12th, it’s available for free. Enjoy the artistic creations that this app can produce.
