Utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks, Style App will take an image or video and apply a predefined graphic style to your media.
For example you could make a style transfer of Vincent van Gogh’s “starry night” and an image of your dog to create a master piece! It also works on any video.

It’s easy to use and you can chain styles together for more style combinations. Over 20 styles to choose from and more being made every week. And because Style runs offline, you can process high resolution images or videos any time you like.
See examples.

Thanks a heap GAOTD and MacDaddy; works great for images 1024 and smaller (resize using another program afterwards) but not for images much bigger (like it all but locked up my PC so had to do a hard reboot; lol). Still very much worth it. Just wish there was a deep dream preset (but I do asketh for too mucheth). :)

has no one else noticed that this software is heavily reliant upon the open source binaries from the ImageMagick project http://imagemagick.org/script/sitemap.php https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImageMagick convert.exe and identify.exe
and ffmpeg project ffmpeg.exe and ffprobe.exe both lacking proper acknowledgment and inclusion of their specific license documentation, all this developer sees fit to include is one sentence:

"Style claims no ownership of extrnal programs bundled with the Style app, specifically FFmpeg and ImageMagick. Use of these extenal libraries are covered in their own licence agreements."

Which is not enough to comply with those projects open source licenses.

Direct quote from ImageMagick LICENSE.txt file:

"It forbids you to:

* redistribute any piece of ImageMagick-originated software without proper attribution;
* use any marks owned by ImageMagick Studio LLC in any way that might state or imply that ImageMagick Studio LLC endorses your distribution;
* use any marks owned by ImageMagick Studio LLC in any way that might state or imply that you created the ImageMagick software in question.

It requires you to:

* include a copy of the license in any redistribution you may make that includes ImageMagick software;
* provide clear attribution to ImageMagick Studio LLC for any distributions that include ImageMagick software."


FFMPEG has its own set of problems with it being GPL2 or 2.1+ licensed depending upon how it was compiled and also may contain patented algorithms e.g. x264 encoding that could attract interest from MPEG LA if the library includes such patented algorithims in the comercial product!

This is a flawed program:

Downloading a 300mb installer, that when you launch, launches a 300mb download!

The filter effects aren't much different to any other mid range filter program, nor are that that many of them.

No adjustability of effects.

Having EVERY effect you try saved to hard drive, can't just preview an effect.

All that AI neural networks BS in the description! Hard to take any developer credible with comments like that.

When the installer fires up, Windows 10 ies the security warning "Publisher cannot be verified." This is NOT a good look for any software publisher!

MacDaddy (and quite a few other software publishers) really should certify their software to avoid shcu warnings. I know that it involves spending some money to get the appropriate certificate(s), but this is part of being in business as a software house.

For anyone running SSD's and want to save space on your C Drive, you can download a piece of software called - FreeMove which allows you to move your file folders off of your C Drive and creating reference short cuts (DLL) back to the C Drive allowing you to move the folders to a different drive.

Carroll,

I don't understand the negative votes I'm seeing at present.

It's a very useful utility/tool to free up Windows system drive C: space (and not just for SSD drives) by moving/"migrating" already-installed application programs (or document folders, or any other folder that is hogging space) to a location on another drive (or the same drive if you like for whatever reason) without changing any references; i.e., "Windows" will not notice the difference and the software should continue to operate as before without re-installations/updates/re-licensing/etc.

This makes a possibly-tricky task easy -- thanks a lot!

Ok so vista is out.
Thanks everyone.

Reply   |   Comment by skybase  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

skybase, yeah vista is out yet the setup.exe is set to be runnable on 32 bit XP! When they built the setup.exe they should have set the NT version to 6.1 and made it a 64bit executable not a 32bit one... Also There apparently was no need to include the 352 MB of applications deployment files in the "Aplication files" folder in giveaway zip bundle since they are not even referenced by the setup.exe and it goes straight for downloading them again from style.hunterinthewood.com producing a further 352 MB download before even checking it's running under a compatible version and edition of Windows! Once the second download completes then it reports it needs a 64bit OS... so todays giveaway requires downloading 636MB and around 1.4gig freespace for ZIP file, extracted ZIP contents, then the downloaded applications deployment files... before it even gets to installing!

No I will not be putting such a poorly thought out package on my SSD + HDD based Windows 10 machine as this is clearly a badly planned instalation that will cause untold extra unecesary write stresses on my SSD C: drive. And from other comments from those that have tried this it is clearly physical RAM bound and will not use virtual RAM to allow it to make use of the 64bit virtual address space properly! I very much doubt it uses any true AI engine and that the claim is purely a bold marketing ploy. If it was truely using so called Neural Networks they would have been implimented in the many GPU cores most decent graphics cards have as well as the CPU's multiple cores but again from comments here the CPU and GPU loading is particularly light, just the RAM loading is high!

Utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks ... Ahw! Come on who's kidding who, this has nothing to do with any of these so straight away developer is making, let's just say, an exaggerated claim or two here. The software uses antilogarithms and a heck of a lot of processing power light high end everything to achieve the results shown in the demo video. For most users this simply won't do the job or it will but forget being able to anything on your PC for quite a while if it doesn't crash it first. Put simply downloading for most people will be a waste of time and a frustrating experience when trying to use it.

Another annoying installer that is locked into only putting the application on the "C" drive. My "C" drive is a SSD which is reserved for my WIN 7 64 OS and critical apps of which this is not one. Software devs, please allow users to pick and choose where they want apps and supporting files installed on their computers.

You want to have a rendering pc. Something with very high specs to make use of this. Something like the AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU. $899.99 on New Egg. Along with a lot of RAM. The more the better like 128GB's along with a very high end graphics card such as the Nvidia 1080 Ti. With a system like that it will be very fast and higher resolutions. People think that all programs are created equal they are not. So unless you want fast rendering and no freezes. The above example of a rendering pc, which is a basically high end gaming specs. I mean there are faster setups if you want to go with server grade hardware and graphics cards made for it like the Nvidia Quadro k6000. Anything else you would have to lower your resolutions and it takes forever if it doesnt freeze on ya to render. So i would pass on this unless you absolutly can't live without these filter effects. but want to thank giveawayoftheday and the author for at least offering it.

Venom, Yes, for the most part, bit over stated, but in photography I am amaze that people spend 1000s on cameras and lenses and then neglect the computer and programing aspect by using outdated computer equipment.

Is my computer out dated? Sure, but for games.. graphics it is fast. So, last years gaming hardware is fine. I am running a 1050Ti and is fine. Has Python programing necessary if you install deepdreams on your computer.

"Utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks...", wow, why do you need that for a morphed view of a picture with pencil style rendering. Either the developer wanted to sound important and amaze the people using it or is trying to insert proprietary morphing as an AI. Why do you need a Neural network for art, with random outcome of the image. I tried to see if the second time the image will come up same as the first one that I ran and it came totally different, which tells me it is a random rendering and has no connection with an AI or Neural networks.

Matt,

Well, IMHO it's not actually AI in this case, because it'll run off-line, so it's not uploading your images to an advanced neural network, e.g. using Google's Deep Dream. That said, the FX might be inspired by or copied from the results of AI image processing.

en[.]wikipedia[.]org/wiki/DeepDream

You asked: "Why?" I think for AI researchers it's simply research, giving them insight into how their AI creations "see" images for example. A newer Google research example is Storyboard for Android. For many the sometimes wild FX are perhaps a bit of a fad, any unpredictability is a bit of fun, and the ease of use keeps them coming back to it, at least until they get bored.

Since my expertise is required... I would suggest your antivirus is the culprit. Have you tried deactivating it before installation?

I am not sure I can see myself making use of this, but it is interesting. I have an AMD cpu with 32 GB Ram running Win 7, so it is fairly quick in its rendering; about 10 seconds to do an image. I have not tried a video, and do not think I need to. I will keep this for future (maybe) use.

Stewart Wallace,
you must be a novice with computers and program installs.
When you go to install it the program will give you the name and location of the folder that it is going to install the program into.
if you don't like the choice it made you may change the location yourself by typing it in.
when the program installs it usually asks you if you want a shortcut in the start menu or desktop or the taskbar.
Choose what you want and that is where you will start the program from.
hope this helps you in your next program install.

The software looked like what I have been after, however, this software uses far too much in the way of computer resources and makes the computer useless while the software does it's magic and that magic can take a very long time. This is the big problem with this software it takes far to long to even convert a single picture never mind a video. There are other software's that can convert photos to paintings and sketches much faster and cost nothing. Though I have to say the developers pricing of the software is very low...which maybe understandable as no one can comfortably use it. One such free software is FotoSketcher, however it does not do video, but then nor does the giveaway !

Installed and registered smoothly on my 64 bit Win 10.

It really has some cool effects on the pictures but you should be very careful while using this software as it tends to freeze your computer with higher resolutions.

Lower resolutions work fine. 515*512 takes 8 - 10 seconds to process in my pc, and 1024*1024 takes around 30 seconds - ONLY IF you're patient enough to dedicate your entire system to this software and not click on anything else, or your computer may freeze.

I also tried an 8-second video, and it froze my pc again. I don't mean the software, my entire computer stopped responding and I had to force shut down.

Also note that, it connects to internet every time you open it to check something, which doesn't make you feel good.

4GB RAM or higher (8GB+ recommended)

Some very good effects on offer here. Well worth a try.

Agreed large images take a long time to process, but smaller ones are much quicker and it is easy to try out the effects on smaller images and only revert to a large one when you know it's what you want.

Just one small point - the process button to start the conversion becomes a "cancel" button once the processing has started and as the mouse pointer stays in the same place it is easy to inadvertantly click and cancel the operation (well it is for me!) Frustrating when you interrupt a process and have to begin it again.

Weird Win 10 installer; puts the software in a folder "Hunter in the Woods" and fails to add a Style Icon to the desktop. Took a while to find this application after I closed it the first time. Also, it seem so have been installed with the license already; after chasing around for the "Buy" button, I noticed the Settings area indicated the Status is , "Validated." From the vendor's name and web site, I gather this software started as a Mac application, then migrated to Windows. Maybe the developer is not too familiar with Windows installation conventions. The software seems to work well on my Win 10 x64 laptop with an i7 and 16GB Ram. Thanks for the chance to use it!

I believe this was originally a Windows program and ported to Mac using all the mac versions of the open source modules it's built on.

Style has been previously offered here one year ago:

https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/style/

This new version installs smoothly over the previous one. Only noticeable (by me) difference with previous giveaway: 34 filters instead of 29.

First, stop fantasizing on the video above, unless your PC has a Rolls-Royce aircraft engine and can be exclusively assigned to this task for days, you won't make your own. Last time no commenters seems to have succeeded, at least not during the giveaway. But if you are into image manipulation, just using Style on photos can justify giving it a try. It will be extremely easy for you (nearly nothing to do), but hard on your PC.

"Please be patient, this may take a long time", warns the interface during the processing, which is an understatement, as it takes an eternity, even for just a picture, and don't expect to do anything in the meantime with your PC except meditating in the lotus position while staring at the screen, as Style will likely claim the entirety of its resources.

The result can be so weird that it will go direct to your recycle bin, but can be stunning if you manage to match the right photo with the right filter, very different from what you get with regular filters of all kinds or with programs which make your photos look like they were paintings or sketches. That's because these filters are not exactly filters strictly speaking, but an image in which elements are picked up and rearranged to reconstitute your picture. You can let them bring their own colors (= more fun) or take those of your original picture (= closer to it). The video above gives you an idea, you can also follow my link at the end of this post.

Hints:

1/ Everytime you want to try another filter after a first one on the same image, don't forget to click the "back" button first if you don't want the new filter to be applied OVER the previous one.

2/ If your PC finds the job too hard and freezes, try a smaller output size limit. My computer, with only 4GB of RAM, wouldn't go beyond 1024x1024, the maximum authorized by Style being 1920x1920. This might seem very small if you want to print, but the sort of grid of contrasting squares which compose the created images coud give a kind of interesting op'art aspect to a large print (although I haven't tried).

3/ If you are not satisfied with the results on certain parts of the created image, do not try to redo it, it would look exactly the same, create another one with your original picture mirrored or rotated beforehand (you can't do this in Style, I suggest they add it, as I am certainly not the only one to have had this idea), then mirror or rotate it back. The effect will be applied slightly differently on the second version. If you are a perfectionist, you can even load them both in an image editor supporting layers and combine them to create a composite with the best parts of each one, or blend them, or blend one with the original picture to mitigate the effect.

4/ Take note that it works only for x64 machines.

And, so that you won't complain here that this giveaway is nothing but a trial version which adds a watermark and wouldn't let you save (but I'm willing to bet that I am wasting my time and there will be at least one infuriated poster):

5/ UNCHECK THE "SHOW WATERMARK" BOX IN THE SETTINGS (Why would anyone WANT to have a Style watermark anyhow?)

6/ Don't look for "save" or "save as" after processing: just have a look in your image folder where your creation is already in a Style subfolder, unless you have decided in the settings that it must be elsewhere.

Here:

you can have a look at 12 animated GIFs showing some of my photos before/after a passage in Style. (Click a thumbnail to enlarge, then click again to animate.) All images but n° 05 created with box "Use your image colours" unchecked. The percentage indicated below is the opacity of the Style image pasted over the original photo in an image editor. When it is not indicated, the Style image has not been blended with the original. All photos except n° 11 and 12 are scans of analog photos.

01- Filter: Geometry;
02- Filter: Colorful world, first with 100% opacity, then with 50% opacity
03- Filter: Triangles, first with 100% opacity, then at various opacity levels depending on the areas + some doctoring on the kid's face
04- Filter: Mandelbrot, first with 100% opacity, then with 60% opacity
05- Filter: Cubist. Image created from original photo and image created from mirrored photo blended 50/50 (for a more complex pattern) [photo colors, desaturated on the background].
06- Filter: Edtaonisl. Image created from original color photo and image created from B&W mirrored photo blended 50/50
07- Filter: Kandinsky
08- Filter: Candy
09- Filter: Kanagawa
10- Filter: Acrylic at various opacity levels depending on the areas
11- Filters: Colored pencil lines with 100% opacity for pavement and water [filter colors desaturated]; Psychedelic with 40% opacity for pigeons
12- Filter: Retrofuture

ouialaraison, I read your advise and thanks for giving it. Most of the time, it's me giving advise on GOTD. Utilities & OS software I know a lot better. Thanks again!

ouialaraison,

This program does not use a lot of CPU or GPU. It is very lightweight in that regard. What it does use a lot of is about 20GB of RAM.

On my i7-4790K with 32GB RAM, most renders at 2560x1440 resolution complete in 20 seconds.

Ray,

As ouialaraison stated in her very comprehensive and helpful comment: "My computer, with only 4GB of RAM, wouldn't go beyond 1024x1024, the maximum authorized by Style being 1920x1920." So it looks like this program depends on how much RAM one's computer has . . . YMMV.

hi,, this for 64bit. is there a 32bit?
Much Thanks.

JR, yes, it is only for 64bit. As it is extremely hard on resources, I don't see how it could work on 32bit.

ouialaraison, "I don't see how it could work on 32bit"
a 32bits Windows can only access max. ~3Gb memory.
64bits Windows a lot more.
And of the 3Gb, subtract the amount for Windows and also of some other stuff like graphics.
And a lot of work has to be done.
And that would cost a lot of swapping. And therefore a lot of extra time.

It would be great to try this BUT and here is the QUOTE - My administrator (ME even after I have said to run as administrator & given all permissible rights) has blocked this application because it potentially poses a security risk to your computer. (END QUOTE) You guys might want to use a BETTER wrapper program then this or just throw your money & time down the tubes, o ya - just like I just did. Thanks a bad start to Sunday.

Thomas Roberts,

money down the tubes? Why would you throw money after it before testing it?

Breagha, maybe he's on a pay as you go internet connection, just the act of downloading 284MB might have cost some money!

Thomas Roberts,

Did you turn your AV off? This has been a known difficulty with some anti-virus programs.

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Matt, I did turn my AV off, and I still got the error message.

Reply   |   Comment by JimK  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

And I also ran the Setup.exe as an Administrator. Nothing worked. First time I see an app that wouldn't install that way!

Reply   |   Comment by JimK  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

TK, you're right, I'm sorry. I take too many things for granted, sometimes :/

A possible workaround is described here - https://www.top-password.com/blog/windows-10-fix-this-app-has-been-blocked-for-your-protection/ - just, if you disable UAC, remember to enable it again. It does do some good, now and again, when it isn't a pain.

Reply   |   Comment by Breagha  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

JimK,

You could disable AV on the Start Menu in Task Manager, restart your computer, and try to download and install Style. Then you can enable the AV again.

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

SOLUTION:
Open Regedit to: "HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\.NETFramework\Security\TrustManager‌​\PromptingLevel\Inte‌​rnet"

Change from Disabled to Enabled and it will install!

Good thing we have Google to help us out!

Sorry.... Tr.... means "TrustManager"
