Like many apps, I have no idea what the name means, but Aquarella must mean something cool or hip…or one of those words. It is the latest from JixiPix which makes a lot of nice apps. I’ve tried it out for a few shots and so far I’m enjoying it quite a bit. It seems to work with no problems and save at full resolution (on my iPhone 5). It takes a bit long to save the file, but since the output is full res it’s worth the wait. JixiPix also seems to get their apps to run faster over time.
From the description:
Watercolor, or Aquarelle is a wonderful transparent and luminous artistic media. Watch as Aquarella transforms your image into one with liquid pools of color blended fluidly on paper to create a watercolor with all the delicate details found in a traditional watercolor media.
Look closely as you render your aquamedia to discover light delicate “blooms” of wet color running throughout your creation and brush strokes of overlapping pigment dried dark along the edges. You will be thrilled when you see your newly rendered watercolor – Auquarella is a professional artistic app and will deliver a high-end watercolor result true to the original media.
Here are a few shots I’ve put up on Flickr that I created with Aquarella. Click on them to see a larger version.
