Here's a really simple feature that's fun: the watercolor effect. To use it:

1. Click "edit" above any image in Photobucket.
2. Click the Effects tab, and then "Sketch." (You may have to click "More" to see it.)
3. Click the Advanced Options button, and adjust the “Fade” and the “Smooth” sliders until the photo looks like a watercolor painting!

When you're done, upload your masterpiece to our Watercolor Effect group album!
