Waterlogue

February 6, 2014 · 5 comments

We have been the house of the sick this week. Poor Miss L has a virus which being the kind child she is, has shared with me.  Yesterday after the nth hour of being bored in bed, I was looking at Instagram – nothing like seeing the world through the eyes of other people, especially when you are stuck in bed.  Someone (I cannot remember who for the life of me – sorry!) was posting cool water colour photos tagged with #waterlogue.

So I thought I’d check it out. It’s an iPhone/iPad app £1.99 (sadly not on Android yet from what I’ve googled) which converts your photos into watercolour pictures. I’m wondering if they are good enough quality to make into canvases, I quite fancy some homemade art.

Ely Cathedral

So I think it’s kinda cool, I couldn’t get any pictures of family or friends to come out that well, but maybe we just have weird faces? But I think the landscapes, flowers and buildings come out really well. I might try and do one of the front of my house?

Have any of you tried it? Send me the link if you have I’d love to see your results!

Love the one of Ely Cathedral! I think that it’s the size constraint of being a phone app that would prevent it from doing a good job on faces. I don’t know if there’s anywhere that does it, but the watercolours would make fantastic coasters!!

Love this idea! Would be really good to print and frame for a really personal and unique photo wall. I would use massive frames with huge mounts, then it would draw the eye into it. Thanks for sharing!

It’s such a shame! Still it must be coming soon they’d be mad not to make if for android.
