Hi to all,
i tried to do watercolor effect for photo in Artstudio pro on the iphone device,but it’s not enough quality like PS.i followed this link for simulation path in the Artstudio pro:

my steps:
1.open a photo
2.duplicate layer
3.adjustment layer > add posterize > level 6 > ok > blending > pin light > merge visible
4.duplicate layer
5.filter > blur > surface blur > 40 50 > ok > blending > screen
6.duplicate last layer
7.filter > edge > edge detect > 0 67 0 > ok > blending > multiply
8.merge visible > save photo > exit
9.open new empty
10.add layer from photo > choose watercolor paper pattern > blending > multiply
11.add layer from photo > choose edited photo in 1 to 8 steps > add mask > hide all
12.use some watercolor brushes

Did you use brushes from file 'Jess Bircham Photoshop Watercolor Brushes.abr' attached to the youtube video?
If not - import that pack in Artstudio Pro.
