Tutorial: AKVIS Points



In AKVIS Points you can observe the conversion of your photo into a pointillism painting in real time. During the process, the program creates a list of intermediate shots which represent different stages of conversion — from a semi-processed painting to a practically finished work of art. This useful feature lets you create variations of artworks without changing the effect settings.

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