AKVIS LightShop — Reviews:
AKVIS LightShop v.6.0, available both as a standalone application and a Photoshop-compatible plugin, provides an expansive environment of lighting effects that can be applied to any digital image to add interest and impact.
Met Akvis Lightshop maakt u de mooiste lichteffecten in uw opnamen. U kunt deze plug-in zowel gebruiken om nieuwe lichtbronnen te maken als om bestaande, zoals de zon, te benadrukken. Lichtbronnen zijn in allerlei kleuren en vormen beschikbaar. Ook halo's en 'flares' zijn voor dit programma geen probleem. Akvis LightShop is beschikbaar voor zowel Windows als Mac OS X systemen. <...> Aanbevolen!
After receiving this program and looking through the information, panic set it. How is a review for light going to be accomplished without a whole bunch of pictures. Well, here’s an effort to do just exactly that. <...>
Here’s the process. Start Lightshop. Open your picture (suggestion: don’t work on originals). Decide which light effect you want to use (or multiples). Apply the adjustment factors. Save and/or print.
If you think this is an over simplified set of instructions, it is! You will spend substantial effort in the beginning to learn how the various effects and the modifying procedures work together to provide remarkable light enhancement to your pictures.
For those of you who spend a lot of time enhancing your photographs, this is a remarkable tool to add to those already fabulous editing applications which you may be using.
I downloaded the program in my new laptop with Vista. It loaded quickly
without any problems. It operates as a stand-alone utility or it can be used
as a plug-in in to Photoshop CS3 or Photoshop Elements 6.
I used it both as a stand-alone and in Elements 6. The plug-in version is also compatible with Corel Painter, Coral Photo-Paint, Paint Shop Pro Photo and Ulead Photo Impact.
This is a great program for the young at heart, as you can add glitter and glitz to any photo. Just let your imagination soar and the program has the right tool to do it with. Add stars, rainbows, raindrops, light rays from a light source, fireworks, planets and even alien signs in the sky. There are so many possibilities with this program...
When I looked t the AKVIS site, I immediately was intrigued by the Lightshop plug-in. There are many ways to create lighting effects, but this program gives you a fast and fun way to do it. <...>
I like Lightshop for the flashy effects it can add to your work. You need to be care- ful, though, to keep the effects you add subtle, so as not to make things appear TOO fake. Less is a lot of times more when dealing with enhancements to photos.
LightShop is another AKVIS program. It lets you add light effects to your photos or just sharpen and brighten them up. You can use it as a stand alone program on your desktop or use it with your photo enhancing programs. I used the stand alone and also used it with my Adobe 6.0...
AKVIS LightShop 2 is a Photoshop compatible plug-in that allows you to create fascinating light effects such as lightning, fireworks, halos, glows, flares, etc. The settings and tweaks within LightShop provide an infinite number of light effects. AKVIS LightShop 2 is available as a stand-alone application and as a Photoshop plug-in.
Akvis Lightshop is a brilliant plugin (Plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop Pro, Ulead Photo Impact, etc.) that enables you to enhance photos with amazing high quality lighting effects. You can create lightning in a stormy sky, a colorful rainbow over a city, a reflection on a raindrop, the glow on smoldering wood in a fire-place, alien signs blazing in the night sky, flares on the sun, the lights of distant planets, fireworks or whatever the limit of your imagination is.
