PhotoFiddle.com allows visitors to upload pictures on their computers and transform
the image into a watercolor, pop art, collage, oil painting, and many other
artistic treatments. The image can then be ordered for home delivery as a stretched
piece of artwork on museum-quality canvas. The artwork is even delivered with
a pair of white gloves included so as to not damage the delicacy of the final
work. There are various framing options and sizes available, making photographs
that have been "PhotoFiddled" a unique gift.
