Do you want to make an unforgettable gift for your family? Post a flashy photo to Instagram? Make a bright advertisement with a memorable image? Or are you an artist, wanting to quickly experiment with various styles?
Let’s take a look at how simple it is to process a photo in artistic style with free online photo editing app AlterDraw.com.
The AlterDraw service works completely online, which means that you do not need to install additional programs and think about compatibility issues with your system.
All that is needed for processing is to upload a photo and a reference image, representing the desired style. Further processing occurs automatically using a complex neural style algorithm on the server.
There are more than 120 predefined styles available on the site, conveniently categorized:
After choosing a style, an example of applying this style will be shown on the demo image. Your result may differ due to the choice of styling parameters, which you can configure on the site. Selecting multiple parameter values will produce separate styled photos. The default options work well on average.
Artistic photo rendering involves deep neural network processing and takes some time, which also depends on the server load. It is possible to configure the app to send e-mail notification when photo processing completes in your profile settings.
You can download the processed photo after its icon appears by clicking on the icon or on the [Get result] button to the right of the icon.
By clicking the [Options] button, you can see the parameters with which the styling was obtained, if you want to do something similar or set improved settings.
By clicking the [Publish] button, you can post the result in the public gallery of the site.
By clicking on the image icon in the gallery, you can see it in full screen mode, together with styling settings, and also view other processed photos by clicking left and right buttons.
Feel free to post your results if they are not perfect — your name is not displayed, and this will help other users know what works and what doesn’t.
