Waterlogue, the hot new photo app

Have you seen the HOT new photo app for iphones and ipads called Waterlogue? It is hugely popular and is sweeping through the design community.  In fact, while cruising through Instagram yesterday two out of every three postings were Waterlogue pictures.

You can take a photo with the Waterlogue app or upload any random photo and then turn it into a water color painting.  It’s like Instagram on steroids in that it can turn even the most mediocre photo into a work  of art.

Here are a few images I made yesterday while watching (killing time) during the Super Bowl.

This is a photo as it appeared originally. Not a great photo as it was taken with my camera phone during the install and the lighting was not great.

Seriously, doesn’t it look like I paid several hundred dollars to have this professionally rendered? I know my clients would LOVE to have an image like this of their room.

The image below was transformed by the waterlogue “It’s Technical” filter.

I totally understand the craze and addiction…everything looks fabulous in Waterlogue… Even a sink full of soaking dishes.

    I’m dying to try it since I heard about it a few days ago! Wish I could have it on my computer, though. So do you use it on your phone and email yourself the photo, or what?

      Kristie, I used the images that are in my phone photo album. I then emailed them to myself to get them on to my blog. The dishes in the sink I photographed right through the app.

    This is AMAZING! I just tried it with flowers in a vase, and I have an instant painting. Thanks for this post, I am addicted now!

      Thanks Livia, It is also a great way to make art work. Next thing I am going to try is having a few enlarged to possibly frame and see how they look. I’ll let you know!

        Bummer…it is so popular that I can’t imagine they wouldn’t make one for Android….the demand is certainly there.

    I have been wanting a painting of my dog. This is going to be perfect!

      I’m thinking the same thing Janis. A family portrait would be fun too!
