Dynamic Auto-Painter (DAP) is a fun to use software to automatically turn a photo or a 3D rendering into great looking painting inspired by some of the most famous real world artists.
Dynamic Auto-Painter can work also as a great feedback tool to improve your photography skills by simplifying the image to its core visual values.

This is not your ordinary photo-to-painting effect! Instead of changing the pixels of the photo itself, DAP uses the input image only as a guide to paint the scene with many different brushes and guided by real-world artists inspired techniques.
"Dynamic Auto-Painter delivers brilliantly on its promise of real art in short order – and at an excellent price" Review PC PRO 2011
Looks like painting from a distance
One thing that puts DAP above others is that the output images will look like a painting even in small size (for example resized on web or looking from a distance when printed). This is usually a common deal-breaker with all automatic filters which when resized down will look only like a processed photo.
Looks like a painting up-close
Looking at the details you may think we are showing you a real canvas. And in some sense it is actually true. There is an option in the software called Real Canvas that simulates the way a real canvas or art paper interact with the paint. There are enough details even for a large poster print.
Never paints the same image twice
Not only you have different painting styles, you can choose different impressions and palettes. However, even with the same settings the brush strokes will differ from one image to another as would do with a real painter.
We spent years of researching the technique of famous impressionist painters in order to be able to closely mimic their style of painting, something which has never been successfully done in an automatic computer painting program before.
It doesn't stop with the preset styles, there is a community of people producing and sharing their own styles. If you feel adventurous, you can also make your own.
The professional 64bit version adds additional tools and newly developed HD presets for ultra realistic complex details and brushworks. With the right subject it is capable of producing large, highly detailed paintings that look real and organic even when "pixel peeping" while still keeping a distinguishable style of a real painter.
With the Material and Real Lights in the professional 64-bit version the canvas becomes truly alive with scratches, dried paint and bumps. Great for application where close-up detail is important such as very large prints.
New PRO x64 3.1 version can apply multiple overlays such as paper textures, signatures or realistic frames on the painting.
"The Dynamic Auto-painter is highly addictive."

In a Nutshell:
Full of Surprising results
The arbitrary nature of the painting process is ready to uncover many surprises in your images.
Great Feedback tool for creative minds
Dynamic Auto-Painter can work as a great feedback tool to improve your photography skills. A painting will simplify the image to its core visual values allowing you to evaluate the overall impact of the image such as proper framing technique or good separation of subject from its surrounding.
Looks Good when Printed
Unlike many off-the shelf painting effects the printed results from DA-Painter look stunningly painting-like. The Real Canvas option will add Canvas or watercolor Paper feel to the whole image even when printed on a normal non-textured paper.
It is in the details
The 64 bit version adds material and light properties where you can determine how the dried paint reflects light and then add various lights. The result will give third dimension to the brush strokes where you can see scratches and bumps in paint.
Add a new dimension to your creative tool-box
Both designer professionals and home users can appreciate the new creative dimension of a painting style as a counter point to the abundance of digital photography.
If you feel like to create your completely new preset from scratch, you can. The interesting thing is that the set of brush strokes can be anything from colors to pictures of vegetables or coffee beans so you can really go wild.
