A good friend recently took a great photo that was used on his Facebook page, he commented it looked similar in composition to some of the Old Master type paintings, and I produced a few printed copies for him.
In a few quiet moments I thought I’d use Photoshop to produce a painting type effect for him but I couldn’t get it to look just right, so it was off to Google for a Mac painting App.
I found a trial version of PhotoArtista - Oil from JixiPix, after trying it out, it was an instant buy at a very reasonable price (£13.01UKP), I printed out my result on matte paper and gave it to my friend.
The very next day a marketing email arrived from JixiPix offering a ’Summer Sale’ with 35% discount off all their products!
An email explaining I’d bought a product from them less than 24 hours earlier was sent......to my surprise the very next morning there was a refund email for £4.30 from JixiPix...........now that’s how to treat a customer!
