Easily give your photographs a hand-painted look in just a few clicks with the help of my Painted Effect toolkit for Adobe Photoshop. A series of filters and adjustments are automatically applied to your image to mimic brush strokes and bold smudgy colours. Choose between the Photoshop Action to apply the effect with a single click, or import your images into the Smart PSD. Both methods offer convenient ways to achieve the same result!

It’s ideal for headlines, posters, product design, quotes, branding, marketing materials and more. The font supports all major characters and punctuation, and even comes bundled with 10 bonus quote designs with a Summer theme.
