March 6, 2009 — AKVIS Software Inc. announces the update of AKVIS Decorator plug-in to v.1.6. The plug-in allows applying a new texture/color to an object preserving its volume. The new color or texture looks absolutely natural. New to version: bugs fixed, new interface languages added (Italian and Portuguese). Upgrade for registered users is free.
With AKVIS Decorator you can create your own world!
The program allows painting objects on a photo with astounding ease and with amazing results. You can apply a snake skin to your car, turn a man into an alien, change a dress on a girl, convert a wooden table into a golden one and anything else that you can imagine. See the examples.
Select an object on an image and apply new textures or/and colors to it. Unlike the "bucket-fill" tool in many photo editors, the plug-in follows the underlying features of the object, its folds and creases. The new pattern looks absolutely natural and makes you see things differently.
The program comes with a built-in Texture Library that offers a rich collection of over 1700 textures - from fabric to stones and metal, from food to animal fur and flowers. If it is not enough, you can apply your own textures – just save a square pattern as a JPEG file and load it into the library.
Applying a fish scale to a car’s surface can be fun, but of more practical use is to apply AKVIS Decorator for design purposes.
With this software you can quickly choose a suitable design for your apartment by playing with different colors and patterns for furniture, walls, curtains, decorations, etc. It’s useful for designers to show the customers the same room in different versions or for web-designers to represent the same items in an online shop (china-ware, blankets, clothes, piece of furniture, etc) in different colors/patterns.
For a free trial, AKVIS offers 10 days of fully functional use. Just download and use the program.
AKVIS Decorator Plug-in is compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter, Corel Photo-Paint, Paint Shop Pro and Ulead PhotoImpact. AKVIS Decorator runs on Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/NT/2003/Vista and on Macintosh Mac OS X, PowerPC/Intel.
AKVIS Decorator sells for $54 USD, downloadable from akvis.com.
Home users can enjoy the full line of AKVIS plugins in the AKVIS Alchemy (13 Photoshop compatible plug-ins) for USD $325 USD, huge savings over purchasing each separately. One license key allows activating the software on two computers, for example, on a desktop and a laptop.
