Photo Painting Created at

Some time back, I took a point-and-shoot snapshot of an apple, fresh from the tree. I liked the apple, but not the photo. The lighting was as dull as my photography skills. The image was pale and boring.

I decided to experiment with the photo to make it more interesting so I searched for special effects among dozens of free online photo editors. I stumbled on It's a free and fun photo-effects web site. It turned my apple snapshot into something that reminds me of a Renaissance fresco. Imagine what you could do with a better photograph?

If you'd like to give it a try with your photos, just click below to visit Click on "HDR effect" and then upload one of your photos from your computer, disk or cell phone. When your image appears, adjust the saturation so that the colors are a little more vibrant than you'd like them to be. Then, hit the "Apply Effects" button and wait. The processing may take a minute or more. That will seem like an eternity. But, it took Michelangelo even longer to do his stuff.

When your new image appears, you can adjust the color saturation and "Strength" of the effect as often as you like. When you're happy with your fresco, save it and you're done. Just make sure to give it a new name so that you don't overwrite the original image file.
