Working with Presets

AKVIS AirBrush offers a wide choice of the ready to use Presets. The built-in presets help you start working and learn how to use the program. You can easily create your special airbrush drawing from any image.

When moving a cursor over a preset in the drop-down list, the quick result appears in the small window on the left side of the list.

Both tabs of settings (Painting and Decoration) have the common list of presets. When a new preset is created, it will be available in all tabs and will contain their settings.

Note: The AKVIS presets marked with * (for example, AKVIS Color Spray*), use the settings available only for the Deluxe/Business licenses.
