A quick and easy way to produce watercolours

These effects really work! Not only do they produce a variety of appealing watercolour effects on your images, but the whole process has been automated to make it foolproof. This is so much more efficient than trying to produce a similar effect from scratch in Photoshop.

Watercolour Effects

This is a great complement to my ON1 software, as there are some pics which just scream out for a watercolour treatment. I added a layer to allow me to see the outlines of the picture and manipulated the strength of the brushes to achieve a more realistic effect. I look forward to trying it again.

Cool Effect!!

This is super easy to use and creates a great effect! Not all photos work well, but for those that do, this is really cool! She's got a great video explaining how to install everything then how to use it. I did Photoshop and had no problems at all. Great effect! I'm going to have fun playing around with this! THANKS!!!

Great Fun

When you are artistically challenged it is great fun to be able to convert some of your favorite pictures to a watercolor. Not just a picture but now a work of art.

Watercolor Effects

The files and instructions with Nicole's package were easy to understand and download. It took only about 15 minutes to start using theses effects on photos from my library and they look fantastic. I was hesitant at first but I am really glad I purchased this package as I will use it a lot.

So much fun!

Believe it or not, I used this to save a slightly blurry wedding photo I took - it went from blurry to quaint, just like that!

Great for a range of subjects

So, I have the Watercolour Effects in Adobe Photoshop CC and ON1. If you want to turn a land- or seascape into a watercolour, the Presets in On1 are superb and there will definitely be a perfect one - indeed, choice will be the problem, which is the best preset. However, for portraits, I have found I prefer the control I get through using it in Photoshop, where I can tweak more. I have used similar tools before, and this one gives the widest range and the most control, so it is very much the “go to” tool for creating water colours from images.

Wonderful and Fun Series

If you want to dress up your images and receive lots of positive comments then purchase Watercolor Effects. Nicole has made it easy to download, use, and available for most editing programs. While some such as Luminar AI may have some limitations in terms of full functionality (compared to PS, Elements to name new), it stills allows you to edit images that are just simply beautiful. The variety of 30 borders with pre-sets add so much to the images. The nice thing is that Nicole is easy to contact for questions and offers free upgrades for programs like Luminar AI and soon Neo when they are available. I can’t wait to see a Watercolor Effects II if becomes available.
