Default ImpressionFX PaintEngine (Windows)

There is a free beta program called Paint Engine that mushes the pixels around on a picture to give an impressionistic effect. It will come as no surprise that the filter can't do the work of an artist. But it was fun to pull the levers and mush the pixels around, hoping a Monet would pop onto the tiny preview screen.

Many years went by with no indication that beta was not the final step. But eventually, the author released the full blown version. It's ImpressionFX PaintEngine. You can also check out a few samples in the gallery. And the author offers some helpful information about which types of photos are best-suited for rendering, and which ones will have bad results. It also gives general guidelines about using the tool.
