Download the Colorscape app to create your own coloring pages!

Although there are likely several ways to accomplish this, I recently discovered a free app called Colorscape available for both iPhones and iPads.

This app does a great job of turning photos into coloring pages instantly and I was amazed by the quality of the picture pages we created!

Check out this FREE app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play!


Are you a visual learner? I made a video to show how easy the process is to take a fave photo and turn it into a coloring page!

All you do is pick a photo from your camera and the app creates the coloring page image and lets you save it or share it. I then emailed the image to myself and was able to print each image out on paper.

What to make with customized coloring pages created with the Colorscape App?

I printed out a few pages and took them to Staples to have them bound together into a booklet. Such a cute gift idea and a great way to utilize special family pictures!

Here are a few resources to make your very own custom coloring book:

Homemade coloring pages make great gifts!

These booklets are perfect to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or a birthday! You can also have your child’s special artwork framed to display around your home or give it to a loved one.

Tips for making your own Colorscape coloring pages:

  • Use colored pencils or pastel color sticks so the outline of the pictures is still prominent.
  • Avoid choosing images with people wearing sunglasses, they print kinda funky looking!
  • Choose images with good clarity and sharpness so they don’t look distorted after you print them.

My kids thought this activity was so fun! They even asked if they could mail their colored memories to their distant cousins. If you’re looking for cool, free art activities for your little ones, you’ve got to try Colorscape coloring at home!

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      I hope you guys enjoy this coloring craft together!❤️

    Love this! Thank you so much. I’m downloading for myself since I like to sketch, draw, and paint. I feel this will really help me. I can’t create with watercolor or acrylics without a simple sketch first and often my perspective is off.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How fun! You’re welcome, LisaK! Enjoy!

    Are there any apps like this for android?

    • laura

      I got it on my Samsung through the google play store.

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Hey there! You should be able to download Colorscape from Google play as long as you have an Android 5.0 or newer. Unfortunately, I didn’t see very many similar options available in the Google play store. I hope it works for you!

    Thanks! Going to have the kids make Father’s Day cards for their daddy!

    • Jackie

      That’s a great idea! Steeling it from you 😉👍❤️

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, you’re so welcome! Love that idea!

    I upgraded this app for a few bucks so I could remover the water mark and adjust the detail better. Well worth the upgrade . My grandkids love the coloring pages and I framed the ones they colored of each member ( fur babies included) hung them in their playroom at my house. Cheaper and adorable artwork 😊 love this app

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Oh how fun! I love that you turned your grandkid’s pictures into artwork for the playroom, I bet they love seeing it in there😊

    • Alicia Holman

      What do you mean by watermark? Can you post before and after app purchase please? TY!

    Not good, charges for any edits yet the free coloring page it generates lacks any detail thus requires simple editing! Thumbs down, removed app.

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      I’m sorry you weren’t a fan of the app! It does work better with certain pictures more than others.

  8. Vironika

    Still looking for something like this for Android… 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

    • JRC

      Hi!! I have a Samsung Galaxy 9s and I was able to download the app.

  9. CJ Stav

    Are there any other ways Or Apps to create free photo coloring pages where you don’t have to pay to upgrade (to remove watermark?) Thank you
