Textify.it Turns Your Photos into Impressionist Art

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Look, we all love Instagram photo filters, but that's kind of the thing: we all love Instagram. We need some diversity in the photo filter landscape. Textify.it turns your photos into impressionist art using colored text, with your choice of font.

The app is pleasantly simple. You just load an image into the app and select your character set, font and color settings, a background and a filter, and your image is bludgeoned with Claude Monet's typewriter ribbon. You also choose which letters are used in the image, letting you add a touch of subliminal impression on top of the art style. [iTunes via Petapixel]
