Waterlogue, a strong contender for the best app of 2013

We've been keen to try Waterlogue, the auto watercolour app, ever since it was first announced. The early example images shared by Tinrocket looked almost too good to be true. Surely these images have been 'improved' by hand, we thought. But no, after playing with Waterlogue for a few hours, it's clear that Tinrocket has produced something quite remarkable, organic, living watercolour paintings through clever software only. That's not to say that you don't need an eye for a good composition, or an understanding of watercolour, both help massively.

The interface is simple. Pick your photo, then pick from one of 12 presets and leave the rest to Tinrocket's amazing code. The results can be fine tuned before sharing. It's very simple, but the results are like nothing anything else we have ever seen.

Is this the end of the road for hand painted watercolours? No, not at all. As remarkable as Waterlogue is, the artwork that it produces has a Waterlogue look. We think that Waterlogue is best used as a tool for artists who have yet to explore the wonders of watercolour. As such, Waterlogue is an invaluable aid.

Be sure to check out the official Waterlogue Flickr group for many more wonderful Waterlogue paintings.
