October 13, 2010 — AKVIS announces the release of a new program, AKVIS NatureArt 1.0. AKVIS NatureArt is an excellent tool for imitating the magnificence of natural phenomena on your digital photos. You can choose from six nature effects: Rain, Sun, Water, Lightning, Clouds, and Fire.
AKVIS is proud to announce the release of a new program, NatureArt. AKVIS NatureArt is an excellent tool for imitating the magnificence of natural phenomena on your digital photos. It also lets you create nature scenes from scratch, such as converting a blank background into a sea view or a night sky with scattered, glistening stars.
The same photo can take on a whole new look just by changing the weather of the scene. Its spirit will change dramatically, from a ferocious thunderstorm to an optimistic shiny day, from the woods in flames to a melancholic rainy scene. Nature effects have an impact on our mood and can be used to strengthen the impression from a picture.
Version 1.0 offers 6 nature effects: Rain, Sun, Water, Lightning, Clouds, and Fire. In the future the program will learn new natural phenomena.
The Rain effect adds raindrops to an image. By adjusting the parameters you can add various kinds of rain (from drizzle to downpour), even snow (AKVIS Snow preset).
The Sun effect adds the most important celestial body to an image - The Sun in all of its manifestations, depending on the time of day, the seasons, and the weather: bright, dim, summer, winter, rising, setting, etc. By changing settings or using one of the presets from AKVIS, it's possible to transform the sun into the moon (AKVIS Moon preset) or another more distant star (AKVIS Star preset).
The Water effect adds a body of water to an image. The horizon of the body of water can be adjusted vertically up and down. Also the appearance of the water can be adjusted to change such characteristics as color, depth, and the appearance and direction of waves. Use it to change the appearance of an existing body of water or add a tranquil lake to a parched desert background.
The Lightning effect adds lightning bolts of any shape and number to an image. The lightning bolt’s attributes, such as its glow, thickness, and number of branches can be adjusted via various parameters. Add some excitement to a cloudy scene or accent a tranquil background with a bolt out of the blue.
The Clouds effect adds clouds to an image. They can be applied anywhere on an image using the program's selection tools. Their appearance, such size, density and transparency, can be adjusted using the effect's parameters. Use it to fill a featureless sky or to add ominous fog to a pumpkin patch.
The Fire effect (only available under the Home Deluxe and Business licenses) adds flames to an image. You can change the appearance of the flames, including their color by adjusting the various parameters. Enliven a scene with bright flames or even make flaming text.
AKVIS NatureArt goes in two versions, as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor.
The plugin version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, etc. Check the compatibility page for more details.
