AKVIS ArtWork is an ideal solution for creative expression and a perfect gift for a creative person. The program combines advanced painting techniques with a touch of an artistic approach to ordinary digital snapshots, making your digital pictures look as if they were real paintings.
ArtWork gives you a unique possibility to create realistic paintings out of photos taken with any kind of digital camera, be it a digital SLR, a cell phone or a compact. The abundance of options opens access to many different styles and painting techniques.
Now AKVIS ArtWork offers three painting styles - Oil Painting, Comics, and Pen & Ink. In the future, the program will learn additional painting techniques.
The Oil Painting effect converts your photographs into oil paintings. The program lays brush strokes naturally using the original photo as a reference, allowing creative persons to touch-up the painting by selectively changing the direction of the strokes.
The Comics effect allows ArtWork users to replicate works of famous comics artists with just a few clicks. This effect reduces the tones of the photo to create an image similar to a poster or a cartoon. Make a comic strip from your party photos or create an original poster.
The Pen & Ink effect creates drawings that appear to be made with ink on paper. The ink color as well as the color of the background can be changed.
A painting is not complete without an inscription. ArtWork offers a wide selection of canvas and artist's signatures to make your painting a finished product, ready to be printed poster-size and hung onto a wall. Make your loved ones a perfect gift of art!
