New Software! AKVIS Points 1.0: Pointillism Effect for Your Photos! (Press Release, PDF)
We are glad to announce the release of our new artistic software AKVIS Points! The product is available as a standalone program and as a plugin filter for Adobe Photoshop and other image editors for Windows and Mac OS X.
The new program lets you transform your photos into paintings using the pointillism technique.
This painting technique is characterized by applying of separate brush strokes in the form of dots or spots. A complex hue is decomposed into individual colors, which are displayed on the canvas as dotted strokes, small dabs of paint of pure color. The optical mixing of these dots gives us the visual perception of an entire painting.
With the Points software you can easily create gorgeous works of art in a pointillist manner. Make paintings in the style of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac! Discover the world of bright colors!
