    Whose Art? Weighty Question

    JixiPix keeps rolling out winners. This is a beautiful app, looks great on the new iPad. Like its stablemates it's easy to use and works well with both color and black & white photos. Huge selection of papers in colors and multiple textures.Don't you think Hokusai, Kasue, Yoshitoshi, Chikanobu, Hiroshito, etc., would be rolling over their graves/urns, anyway? Is this App a tribute or theft of someone else's creativity? No matter the answers - I really enjoy this app tremendously. Would love to see the following styles added – or, styles tweaked to include: Have a Chikanobu style for women and fabrics, Hokusai for waves & water, Kawase Hasui for his wonderful temples with figures carrying parasols' approaching, bridges… actually, you could do an entire app around each artist or school, for that matter. Utagawa, Osaka, Kitao, & so on. If you are going to do it in the first place, why not go all the way? You've already done a good job with this app, but in one way, you haven't gone far enough. Do them more justice. And, PLEASE DO NOT SACRIFICE QUALITY FOR SPEED. Don't heed those complaints, if it means a switch to low resolution images. I would rather wait for high-resolution processing, than have you shorten the time to save the work, if it means lower quality results. Thank you for reading.

    WOW, too much fun to call art WORK!

    I bought the app yesterday first for the iPad. After a couple hours of terrific results I got on the computer to buy the app for the computer, too. I ran some (OK, over 100) photos through it, but also some of my other art from watercolor and paint programs and then back to this app. I am having a blast and getting some awesome results. I hate that I have to share this secret... but they deserve to sell some apps and I will keep making art without working.

    JixiPix has done
    it again...!

    Every time I think they have bested themselves, out they come with an even better app! Luv what it does to my photos, even the mediocre ones look great!! Thanks, JixiPix!!!

    Simply stunning

    I must admit it was kind of shocking how easy it was to create a lovely elegant work of art from a reasonably simple photograph. The very first piece I made was so good that I put it on my online gallery and I don't want to tell anyone how easy it was to make. It looks like I labored over it for weeks. I've bought a lot of apps for the iPad, but this is easily the best three dollars I have ever spent.


    JixiPix have created a classic!

    All of their apps are amazing. Use them all on a more than regular basis and have yet to have an image produced that I was not happy with. Get this and all of their other apps too, you won't be disappointed. Even though they can be a bit slow on my iPhone 3GS they still get a 5 star rating simply due to their amazing results. Keep it up JixiPix and I'll keep supporting you!!!

    Super results, easy & fun to use

    As a fan of clasic Japanese block prints this app was a have to have app. The results are spectacular. The adjustments provide real creativitly and the random feature is just plain fun.

    Moku Hanga

    It is said that James Whistler discovered Japanese wood-block prints in a Chinese tearoom near London Bridge, and that Claude Monet first came upon the style when wrapping paper used in a spice shop in Holland caught his eye. James Tissot and his friend Edgar Degas were among the earliest collectors of Japanese art in France and was influenced by this exotic art form in very different ways when they adopted the exaggerated colors, and outline contours into their own artistic styles.
