Hard Paint is an original image editor that creates artwork based on selected photos, and using any other image as virtual brush.
Strange as it sounds, the truth is that Hard Paint is very easy to use: simply select the image you want to use as brush – a small, logo-style image works better – and then the photo you want to apply the effect to. Then click "Go" and let the program do its job.
The process takes a long time to produce visible results, but the overall effect is very attractive. You can use the collection of images Hard Paint includes by default as brushes – mainly flowers – or add your own images in BMP, JPG or PNG. The only bad thing is that you can only select a single image; it would be great to use multiple brushes.
If you're patience enough, you'll be able to see the complete drawing finished. If not, Hard Paint lets you stop the process at any time. You can then save the image as BMP, JPG or PNG.
Hard Paint helps you create attractive artistic versions of your favorite photos, using other images as virtual brushes.
