February 14, 2022 — AKVIS announces a major update of AKVIS OilPaint. Version 10.0 includes a new algorithm for transforming images into oil paintings. The update also offers a huge UI overhaul and redesign, a new Presets gallery, and other important improvements.
AKVIS OilPaint creates a piece of art out of any photo! The software converts images into oil paintings, authentically imitating the work of an artist's brush. The program is widely used by design and animation studios, media and video games creators, professional artists and illustrators.
The program helps to turn an ordinary photo into a work of art, to make artistic illustrations, to process images of characters and backgrounds, to create visual effects for matte-painting in the game industry, cinema, advertising graphics, and more.
The new version makes it easier, more efficient, and more fun to render photos into digital paintings.
Version 10.0 implements a completely new photo-to-painting algorithm. The new processing method even more closely simulates real oil painting techniques. The generated brush strokes are soft and natural and look like made by an artist's hand. The oil strokes are distributed natively and creatively, giving the image an art-like appearance. Also, the new processing algorithm is faster than ever.
Fans of the previous processing method and old presets can switch to the old algorithm in the program preferences.
The OilPaint interface has been redesigned to provide a modern experience. All UI elements have been modified, as well as the program icon. Now the software offers three workspace modes: Express, Advanced, and Presets.
The new Presets interface mode displays the ready-to-use presets in the most convenient and effective way. You can see the oil painting presets as thumbnails with the real-time preview, with the ability to quickly switch to the effect settings. It's now easier to manage the presets in the program and choose the effect. With the software, users can try different oil painting techniques with a click.
The update also offers file saving options for Batch Processing, support for new RAW formats, compatibility with the latest versions of Adobe and Corel photo editors, verified support for Windows 11 and macOS Monterey 12, and other improvements.
AKVIS offers to download the software from akvis.com and evaluate all features during the 10-day trial period without activation.
