Realistic Watercolor Photo Effect

Dreamy Watercolor Photo Effect is a premium addon for Photoshop cs5, cs6, and the latest CC that allows you to quickly generate realistic watercolor paintings out of photos, text, shapes, and isolated images. On sale now! $13 for a limited time!

This effect features a hot-press Arches watercolor paper texture, optional pencil sketch outlines, and a realistic variation in the looseness of painted details based on two separate stacked and masked effects. Multiple masks and adjustment options are included so you can customize you paintings conveniently!

Dreamy Watercolor Photo 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, create posters to decorate your home, or make your own salable watercolor elements and clip art!

This effect is 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:
