Tutorial: AKVIS Decorator

Repainting Animals


The author of this example is Alvaro Salazar Chacon. It was done with the AKVIS Decorator plug-in in Adobe Photoshop.

Where nature has chosen modesty and restraint, man sometimes chooses bold experimentation. The AKVIS Decorator plug-in can change the texture of an animal's skin, concealing it under that of another animal, or giving our friend a playful color.

  • Step 5. Press the button to start the texture mapping process.
