miss b loves.........Waterlogue travel pictures



I have a new crush, obsession which I'm sure many of you are already familiar with, as everyone seems to be talking about it ... Waterlogue. This clever little app transforms your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch photos into beautiful watercolour versions in minutes!

Just select the chosen photo from your camera roll or take a new one and wait for the magic to happen ..... watch the 'sketching' then the 'painting' process ......it's fascinating! 

I decided to start with a few of my favourite travel photos(Click on the caption to read the post and see my original photo)

Before

After

Nan Lian Gardens, Hong Kong


It's such a fun thing to play around with and so very easy! There are twelve preset effects to choose from but generally I prefer the 'natural' one. You can also select how light or dark you would like the 'painting' 

Hanoi, Vietnam

La Tour Eiffel, Paris


The Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Skyline, Doha, Qatar


Blue Mosque, Istanbul


The Chedi Hotel, Muscat, Oman

.....and finally a little closer to home. A photo taken during a recent visit to London....

Before
After



Waterlogue really captures the essence of the photo but in an artistic way and I may just think about printing a couple of favourites.


I'm sure I could easily become addicted to this!

  4. I read about Waterlogue, and thanks to your post, I'll finally give it a try. It reminds me of my school projects when we painted with watercolour and used pieces of eggshell for mosaic. Ah..those days. The prints are perfect for self-made greeting cards and prints for framing :)

  14. Oh Miss B., I love the results of this fantastic APP, and I rushed over to sign up for it. But it won't work on my android! AHHHHH! And I see no other APP as such for my type of phone. What lovely results!

    Thank you kindly for coming by to leave a comment! Yes, there is nothing like an act of kindness at the right time, or any time, really!

    Have a wonderful weekend! Anita

  16. I need to get this app asap, it actually looks like beautiful wall paintings, you could print them out and frame them, it has a wonderful hazy and romantic effect. It was great hearing from you...Happy Friday Dear!

  17. Wow, it really looks like watercolour paintings. I need to get this app straight away! Well, maybe later, since I would likely play with it quite a lot. Thanks miss b. Happy weekend.

  18. Oh, the watercolor pictures are very cool. I have another blog friend who has been working with her pictures and using this. It really does look like a painting. The Eiffel Tower is so cool, and I love the London one too.

    Have fun creating.

    Love,

  22. Well I must say, you've certainly got enough beautiful photos to choose from, that's for sure. I'm glad you found this app, I didn't know about it before so thanks for introducing it to us. I guess it's probably better for sites and landscapes rather than portrait human shots but if there are different settings I guess you can tweak it to suit the photo you want to play around with. These would be nice to frame as well.

    Have a lovely weekend x
