March 16, 2012 — AKVIS is happy to announce the update of AKVIS Decorator to v.3.0. Decorator lets you apply a new texture and color to an object while preserving its volume. The new color or texture looks absolutely natural. New to this version: Decorator is now available in a standalone version as well as a plugin. Selection tools have been added. The new version demonstrates more flexibility. Upgrade for registered users is free.
AKVIS Decorator has been updated to version 3.0. Decorator lets you change the surface of an object in a realistic manner. The program applies a texture and color preserving the volume of the object, following its folds and creases. The new pattern looks absolutely natural and makes you see things differently.
Just select a part of an image - a dress on a girl, a car, a piece of furniture, etc - and apply new textures to it. The girl can have her dress painted in cheerful patterns, dotted or chequered, appear as if made of velvet or satin, or even of wood or candies.
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 their customers the same room in different versions or for web-designers to represent the same items in an online shop in different colors and patterns.
There is a vast variety of patterns in the built-in Texture Library to apply - from fabrics to stones and metal, from food to nature elements.
You can apply your own textures – just load an image as a texture file into the library.
Version 3.0 of AKVIS Decorator includes many new features:
A Standalone version of Decorator has been added. You can now access the program in two editions: as a standalone program and as a plug-in to photo editors (Adobe Photoshop and others).
The sofware is now available in four types of licenses: Home Plugin, Home Standalone, Home Deluxe (Plugin + Standalone), and Business (Plugin + Standalone). The functionality depends on the license type.
You can now create and edit the selection directly in Decorator using the new selection tools. This feature is accessible in both the plugin and standalone versions.
More patterns have been added to the Texture Library. Now the Library has 1824 textures!
Decorator can load almost any image as a user's texture. Now it's possible to use these formats: PNG, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, and the image size from 50x50 px and more.
The previous versions loaded only 100x100 px JPEG texture images.
AKVIS Decorator's user interface has been redesigned and even the application icon has a new look.
Compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7.3. has been improved. Also, compatiblity with coming Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop Elements 11 has been added to the plugin version.
