Looking for Software to turn Photos into simulated paintings

    A number of years ago, I had software called Deep Paint and
    PhotoArtMaster. These pieces of software could, quite easily, make a
    photo look like a painting. Does anyone know of similar software
    available now?

    I don't agree. No software can 'quite easily' make a photo look like a
    painting. If you are serious, you'll have to really do digital
    painting by drawing the photos main lines with either Photoshop's Pen
    Tool and continue by painting it with the Brush Tool, or use the best
    software on the market therefore, which is Corel Painter.
    (Not Paintshop but Painter)
    This is not a plug-in work to do but time consuming and hard work.

    Thanks!! I have the original of PhotoArtMaster - but can't get it to
    work. I can't even get started with it. Perhaps you could help.

    I also have the original of Deep Paint and have always liked it. Just
    looking for some additional apps for my arsenal.

    Thanks also. I'll take another look at Painter - but I think it's too
    difficult for my level of expertise.

    I'm used to PS - even though I haven't used it in a while - been ill.
    I'll check out Painter Essentials. In the meantime, could you help me
    started in PhotoArtMaster? I just tried it last night and finally took
    it off my system. It's an original version. What happens is that I'll
    open a photo - then click on Studio. When I do that, I get a blank
    canvas. Why does this happen? Am I doing something wrong?

    Ooooops!! When I open the Studio, all I get is a blank canvas - no
    Thumbnails. What am I doing wrong?

    Got PAM to work. Is there a way to print the Help files?

    Thank you - I never thought of that.

    I'm using Vista and the way I got PAM to work was to run it in XP mode
    and as an administrator. That did the trick.
