PhotoViva is a powerful application for photo editing and freeform painting. It can help you transform your pictures into expressive and colorful works of art.

In addition to tools for enhancing your photos, there are paint brushes that let you make abstract painted interpretations of photos. You can select a brush and copy image features by cloning or painting. Brushes can track the direction of movement, or you can set the brush direction. You can also change the hue, saturation and blur of brush strokes as you go.

App Hints

Use large brush strokes to fill the canvas, then use smaller brush strokes to reveal detail
Use Brushes in "Copy" mode instead of "Paint" mode to copy the source image to the canvas
Use Tools->Blend undo.. to vary the density of your most recent change to the canvas
Use the Airbrush in "Copy" mode to blend the image directly to the canvas after painting with brush strokes
Try clearing to White, Black or Cream using the Fill menu before painting
Add color noise to brush strokes to make a lively variation in the color
Use less or no color noise when painting on skin tones
Use the HDR correction feature on images that have people in the shadows


The maximum output image size is based on the CPU and graphics capabilities of your iOS device.
