    I saw that this question has been asked a long long time ago... There still does not seem to be any stand alone software or Photoshop plugin for the Mac that will create a "paint by numbers" image from a photo. Has anyone successfully found one?

    Only for PCs

    I have only found them for PCs. There are sites that will convert your photo to a PBN kit, but they are expensive.

    Code:
    What does the Paint by Numbers program do?
    
    My program includes these features:
    
        * Unlimited undos - If you find that you have made a mistake, you can simply back up to that point, then start over from there.
        * Automatic solution checking - Once you've complete a row or column, the program places a check next to it, if you're right, or an X, if you're wrong.
        * Use any font and size for the numerals - Use large print for maximum readability, or small print to fit a large puzzle on the screen.
        * Type in any puzzle from a book or magazine - Other programs require you to know the solution beforehand to create a new puzzle in the program. My program just asks for the clue numbers.
        * Create new puzzles from pictures in the clipboard or from PICT files.
        * Auto Solving - Allows you to make sure that any puzzles you design each have one and only one solution. 
    
    What do I need to use the program?
    
    All you need is a Macintosh or Mac-compatible computer with:
    
        * MacOS 7.0 or later, and
        * One megabyte of memory.

    My thoughts exactly. Nice research though.

    Thank you, but I should have been more specific...

    This really was an act of kindness, and these are terrific links. I am grateful for your research.

    Unfortunately, I should have said that I'm looking for a program that will convert a photo into an actual paint-by-number document, that can be printed onto paper or canvas and actually painted (or colored in).

    Programs like Stoik are PC-only, and other paint-by-number sites are puzzles or online-only.
