AKVIS Draw — Revues :
AKVIS Draw v.4.0
(Michael Kleper, The Kleper Report in Digital Publishing, MMXVII, No. 262 v.21.1)
AKVIS Draw v.4.0 enables users to simulate hand-drawn pencil sketches and line art drawings from digital photos. The level of realism is incredible, and the effects are fast and virtually infinitely editable. The user can select from dozens of professionally designed presets, modify them, save them, and the print or share their creations.
Various tools and controls are provided for a wide spectrum of customization, such as leaving the foreground alone, and adding drawing effects to the background.
AKVIS has just released another wonderful new program for digital photographers. This one is called AKVIS Draw and it shares the same general interface and usage characteristics that we have found in the majority of AKVIS titles we have looked at.<...>
Although this program may appear to resemble AKVIS Sketch, reviewed in a recent issue of the DoubleClick, it is actually very different from Sketch in that it tends to reduce photos to a single element. Sketch is fine for rendering photographed landscapes and seascapes into chalk drawings but AKVIS Draw is best for removing all of the background clutter and distracting data from an image and re-creating the subject in just a few bold strokes. Draw might be the better choice for high impact illustrations for a book or instruction manual.
Of all of the AKVIS programs. Draw is probably the easiesty to use. It makes a realistic looking drawing effect in just one click!
Akvis Draw is a new and excellent plugin for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements to convert digital images to realistic hand drawn black and white or colored sketches. That's the base and maybe everything that you will ever need. Draw is doing an excellent job with no doubts. For me, that's starting point where the fun begins.
First of all, let me tell you the background of this review before we proceed. Akvis Draw was published yesterday, March 20, 2014. I saw the potential of this program in the first run. Some things you can recognize immediately. What you can see and read in this review is a result of playing around for about 2 hours. We can imagine what else is possible to do with Akvis Draw and you can expect later and some tips from me to be published on this blog.
