How to Create an Oil Painting from an Image in Paint.NET
There are tons of effects in Paint.NET that you can apply to images. One of my favorite is to take an image and to turn it into an oil painting. And this is really easy, just click to select the image that you’d like to change into the oil painting. Right here I just have one image open. I’m going to go up to effects and then I’m going to go to artistic and then oil painting. And the only disadvantage here is that you can’t see the changes as you make your adjustments. So you might have to try it a couple of times to get the exact look that you’re going for.
So on brush size, the higher you change the brush size, the bigger the brush strokes are going to be in your oil painting. Also coarseness, that’s just got to be how coarse the brush is as opposed to how fine it is, so I’m going to go ahead and set everything up a little bit then click OK and it’s going to give you the this rendering dialog box and tell you the percentage.
Now, if you move this a little bit, you can see that it’s slowly being applied to your image. You can see that my hard lines are getting a little bit more soft. They’re turning into brush strokes. As you can see, it’s working it’s way down the tower right now and applying my changes and of course, how long this takes will depend on how slow or fast your computer is as well as the changes that you made, how often you’ve used the oil painting feature. These will all take part in how long it will take.
So, I’m getting close to being finished. It’s still working its way down. And this can be really dramatic on different landscapes or with people. I like to use it just on objects like this. I think it looks really realistic like it could be a painting. I’m going to go ahead and deselect this so I can see it. And there I have turn an image into an oil painting.
