Paint by Numbers Creator for iOS

This application allows you to turn any photograph to a ready to paint printable canvas.
This canvas is exportable in a PDF, SVG, PNG or JPG file.
Once printed on a real canvas, you just have to paint the numbered areas with the matching colors in your palette.
The projects can be saved for later editing.

  1. Touch the top left button and select "Open New image".
  2. The image is analyzed and should appear with the numbered areas.
  3. To check the result, you can zoom with two fingers or pan with one.
  4. The top right button opens the parameters panel which allows changing the number of color, the size of the numbers, etc...
  5. To print the result, touch the top left button and select "Export to PDF".

It is recommended to choose images with less detail as possible. Increasing the blur power helps to reduce the details in the application.


iOS 7.0 or later.

This app was the best app I have ever used. I painted a portrait of all my immediate family members using the app and I am giving them as Christmas presents. All of them turned out beautiful. I love paint by numbers but I am so tired of the limited designs out there. Now I can paint any picture I want! I love all the features that can change the numbers of colors used and detail. After emailing the PDF to myself, I love how it prints out with the picture already colored, the colors needed, and the template itself. I think you are a genius and I plan to use this app much more. This app is easily worth at least $20 to download. It's any picture you want to paint. You can't get better than that!

Thank you so much for this very kind review. I am so glad you enjoy my application. Do not hesitate to tell me new ideas for improvement, or what is bad in the user interface! I will try to improve it.

Great App! Does everything I want, including being able to create your own palette! One thing: please make a manual. There are some features I don't understand in the advanced settings, and with the creation of the color palette.

Thanks, I will try to add more help for the advanced settings and the palette editing :-)

Very cool App! I noticed that it loads photos in a landscape orientation only. I have some very nice portrait pictures but the are distorted when I import them. I will have to convert those to landscape to use them. Any chance to allow portrait imports?

@Mark T Thank you Mark. I do not understand because the application allows to load any image orientation. In the next version, the photo picker will rotate, but your issue is not the same. May be your images in a portrait orientation are very big, and cannot be load by the application. I will investigate.

Sorry for the confusion, when I save a portrait picture it changes it to landscape. This skews the output making the result short and fat. Thanks for looking into this.

Vertical photos keep opening in horizontal mode. Distorted. On iPad Pro and iPod touch. What's wrong?

Portraits keep opening in landscape format, distorted. What's wrong?

2017/07/05 01:05:37 KBSnyc
Testing, I see that if I edit the photo on the iPad and save it, then it adapts correctly. That work on three Portrait photos. Stay tuned.

@KBSnyc Ok, thank you for this new report. I'm checking again...

2017/07/10 11:16:56 Regis
@KBSnyc The bug is now fixed, sorry for that issue. The updated app will appear very soon when Apple approves it!

Your app is awesome. How do I transfer the image to the canvas?

2017/08/23 16:48:34 Regis
To transfer on a true canvas, you may use specific canvas for printer (amazon.com or others). Or you could try to copy it by transparency if the canvas is transparent enough: * just print the image from PaintByNumber (with thick lines), * put it behind the true canvas with a light behind. I hope it help.
