Digital Workshop and Jasc Software, distributor and developer respectively of award-winning Paint Shop Pro, today announced the world debut of Virtual Painter, a unique suite of special effects filters designed specifically for adding realistic painting effects to digital photographs.
Virtual Painter is a collection of 12 easy-to-use special effects filters that let users turn their favourite digital photos into realistic-looking paintings in seconds. These filters install directly into an image editor such as Paint Shop Pro.

These painting styles can be applied to one of 12 different simulated materials, including Paper (Smooth, Medium, or Rough), Washi (Japanese rice paper), Canvas (Fine, Medium, or Rough) Stucco (Smooth, Rough, or Sand), Wood, and Cork.
