"With PaintCan, anybody can paint"™

PaintCan helps you paint beautiful artworks from your favorite photographs within minutes.

PaintCan is not a painterly effect applied to your image—you really are the painter! But dont worry, anybody can do it. PaintCan helps you paint, with smart brushes that configure themselves based on the image you are painting on, so that you are free to explore your creativity, instead of configuring settings.

So what are you waiting for? Create your first masterpiece today!

Please rate and review the app to help us make it the best product we can. If you have issues, dont write a bad review, but contact us at [email protected] and we will try to help.

NOTE: As PaintCan is maturing, we look forward to adding new features based on your feedback.

UPDATE: Weve listened to you! The #1 requested feature is higher resolution output. We are working on this feature and hope to bring it to you in the near future.

iPad vs. iPhone UI:
Due to the size difference between the devices, the interface for the iPhone is different from the iPad, but retains all of the most critical tools. In the future we will work to create a more similar interface for all devices based on user feedback and usage statistics.

Image resolution:
Resolution of paintings doesnt depend on input image size, but on the device youre using. We currently support ~2x the display resolution of your device. Weve printed PaintCan paintings from an iPad Mini on a 24"x18" canvas without pixelation artifacts. The best resolution can be currently obtained with an iPhone 6+
Update: Were working on enabling high-res rendering of your paintings. Because this is very processor intensive, it will be performed on a server, so we dont drain your battery or lock up your device.

Suggested Workflow:
PaintCan supports many workflows and really leaves you in control of how and where to paint. However, a good starting point is to cover the photo first roughly with large paint brushes (Background presets, available on iPad) and then add details where desired (Detail presets). If you added too much detail, simply go over it again with a background preset, or try one of the Extras presets to add or smooth textured areas. Most of all: Explore and have fun.

Document size:
While the app itself is small (~10MB), the data it generates to function is closer to ~150MB (more for newer devices). This is to support the multiple levels of UNDO. Saving snapshots of paintings increases this data-size. You can always delete unused snapshots by going to the Start menu and selecting "Edit". Note: only your snapshots are automatically backed up to iCloud (not the apps cache).

Selecting Colors (and other low level control):
Colors are chosen automatically, based on where you paint. This is done intentionally to give you the easiest, quickest, and most successful painting experiences possible. In the future, we may support additional color choices.
