Watercolor Photo Effect Pro is an addon for Photoshop cs5, cs6, and CC that allows you to quickly generate realistic watercolor paintings out of photos, text, and shapes.

  • Update 8/20/18 Texture Update! See image # 3 for details!

This effect is ideal for making posters, greeting cards, postcards, and more out of almost any type of image or shape. You can sell your designs on Etsy or create posters to decorate your home! The effect is very easy to use, even if you are a beginner in photoshop. I've included a short, concise, and narrated video tutorial -- feel free to check it out!

Watercolor Effect Pro is a premium effect created through weeks of experimenting and color research. The paper texture is scanned from authentic 80lb cold press watercolor paper, and the colors are pushed into realistic watercolor shades based on my own Cotman watercolor palette.

UPDATE 10.9.17: 3 new masks added :]
