Timeline

 

AKVIS Pastel lets you observe the conversion of your photo into a pastel drawing in real time. During the process, the program creates a list of intermediate shots which represent different stages of conversion — from a semi-processed image to a practically finished work. This wonderful option allows you to create variations of drawings without changing the settings.

The Timeline is displayed at the bottom of the main window.

You can also take snapshots of your favorite moments with the button right of the progress bar. When you press it the drawing in its current state will be added to the list; such manual shots are selected with the blue frame.
