    "I'm not a very artistic person, so I wanted to apply some effects to some pictures I had taken. Specifically, I wanted an oil painting filter, since I think that looks super high class. I looked at Cartoon Photo to see if that's what I wanted. There is only one filter, though, and it's more of a sketch look. Some pictures work well with it, but most aren't what I'm looking for."
