Give your photos an artistic touch! MobileMonet converts a photo to a beautiful artistic rendering employing a creative interactive process.

The Unique Sketch/Paint Process

MobileMonet generates a black and white sketch version of any picture you select. There are settings to adjust the sketch line thickness, intensity and even color, as well as the shading.

MobileMonet then lets you paint onto the sketch using a soft flow brush tool that applies a painterly version of the original photo. The more you brush, the more paint is applied. It’s deceptively simple, but very creative. Brush in just the areas you want to highlight. You can adjust the paint settings to get just look you want. The adjustments include vibrance and brightness, as well as number of color shades and edge softness.

Some awesome features:
- sketch and paint settings to get just the look you want
- live controls
- interactive brushing
- multiple undo
- complete EXIF support
- pan, zoom and device orientation support
- save at high resolution
- Save to the Album, eMail, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr and Twitter
- Send a real Postcard with Sincerely

See the screenshots for some examples. You really have to try it yourself to see how fun and creative it can be.

  • Good application

    by Nad2111

    Cool features

  • Great app

    by Mmmbl

    Fun to play with and easy to use.

  • Just what I'm looking for

    by Busymmy

    Easy to use. Exactly what I wanted! Love it.

  • Great Water Color App

    by Borb

    I tried the app,Waterlogue and you don't get to tweek any of the settings. And it wouldn't do a good job with people. This app you're able to fine tune how you want to do things and the results are great.

  • Fun app

    My daughter loves this. Great for passing the time.

  • Mobile Monet

    Great and my son love it

  • Brilliant App!

    by Gracie.

    I've been using this app for about a year, and it never gets old. It gives you remarkably lovely effects and transforms regular photographs into art. This is one of the essential photography apps, especially if you're artistic. Love it.

  • Cool

  • Cool effects

    by Mayor David

    Easy to use

  • It's the best photo-to-sketch app I've ever tried

    by Sokram2

    So yes, I'll be a happy user of this. One needs to know which photos work best, as for example a zoomed in cropped close-up of a face isn't as good as when we use the original.

  • Wonderful effects

    by YarTunes

    I very much enjoy playing with my photos and this app. Excellent

  • Cool app

    by Bigpoppa65

    Worth a buck fun to use

    by rsa_9

    One of my best application .. Thx developer

  • Consider changing the icon

    by fraspas

    It's a great app and you can easily create great pieces of art from your pictures. Only gripe I have (and this causes me to -2 stars) is the icon for the app. I ended up deleting the app because I can't stand looking at that picture. That lady's nostrils are humongous.

  • Boo

    by Alllolall

    Worst color app ever , it doesn't even work in it's correct function . I would have gave zero stars of I were able. I can't believe I spent my money on this .(In my opinion)

  • Monet Junk

  • Ok but.....

    by Timebuilder

    It's alright, but not really meant for the iPad. There are better apps out there that does the same, but it ok, not great by any means.

    by TheEtherBunny

    It gives great effects & is easy to use.

  • More valuable over time

    by Bari T.

    I have over 60 filters, of which Mobile Monet is a top favorite. It never fails to impress me with its rendering. I have received many compliments from people who thought I painted a scene and wanted me to create the same for them with a photo they send me. As devices have more memory installed in them and the quality standards have risen, this app should be able to save uncompressed TIFFs or PDFs in large files for larger print sizes, but as is this app still does a nicer job than many others of the same nature. I have been able to print good quality images at 8.5"x11" even with a low pixel file. You can get away with the low res image printed at a larger size if you print at about 1,440DPI or more on coated matte paper.

  • Great app

    by Regui8er

    Easy to use, and lots if options that don't get overwhelming

  • Great!

    by Hermor

    I love this app. One of my favorites in the photo editing section.

  • Nice App!!

    by eddiegirl

    Easy to learn, fun to use! I've also enjoyed Photo Toaster from this company. Good job!

  • Love this App and it works!!

    by Nigumo

    Gotta dig the way this app turns your photos into 'art'. Takes a little time to get used to and once you learn to manipulate the options you'll enjoy it! I wish there was a way to control the output settings more (transfer to app/resolution); but nonetheless worth the money.

  • Mobile Monet


    It's worthy of your purchase. If you like the soft artsy look, this app will allow you to colorize just the areas of interest and give it something akin to a watercolor look.

  • Slipclutch

    by 1snailtypist

    So far so good. Still learning.

  • A bit disappointed.....

    by curliesue2u

    I am a bit disappointed with this app.... But it may just be that I haven't played with it enough to get the knack of it.... But, I was unable to get back into the app without writing a review, so here I am....

  • Love it!

    by WickedCharming

    I've had this app for quite a while and I still lovd it!

  • Great app!

    by Veronica Taylor

    Lovin this app right here.

  • Great tool for watercolor painting

    by Elizabethanbabe

    Helps to clearly see the darks, lights, and shadows in a scene. Lots of fun to use. Beautiful effects! Most enjoyment I've ever had for $.99!
