Ghost Paint is an iPhone app that lets you transform any face from your photo library into a ghostly visage. Pick the right photo to work on, the and results can be rather eerie — perhaps not quite scary, but definitely eerie. Pick the wrong photo to work on, though, and the results can be junk.

Figuring out which is which in advance is not easy and may not even be possible. What's worse, Ghost Paint takes forever to apply its effects so you'll wait a long time to learn what is or is not working. It's easy to forgive an app that doesn't work well with every image you throw at it, but I'd like to find out sooner if my choice was good or not.

Other photo apps apply an approximation of the final effects, or apply the filters to a small version of your image to show you on screen. This provides you some idea of what to expect before taking the time to apply the effect to a full resolution image.

Ghost Paint in contrast seems to apply the full filter effect to your image every single time you change any option. At least, that's the impression you'll get from how long the app is taking. But the final result is merely 640x640, so it's taking a long time to produce something that is barely sufficient for a computer screen.

Ghost Paint Options:

  • Different levels of detail
  • Normal or Circle drawing mode
  • Six different levels of randomness
  • Five different gradient levels
  • Different levels of brightness
  • Different color gradients

The Good...

  • Ghost Paint produces some interesting effects that you won't find elsewhere
  • You can produce some genuinely eerie images with Ghost Paint

The Bad...

  • Very, very slow
  • Final images are only the resolution of the phone screen
  • Did I mention that it's slow?
