October 13, 2014 — AKVIS announces the release of their new image editing program AKVIS Charcoal 1.0, standalone application and Photoshop plugin for Windows and Mac OS X. The software creates charcoal, chalk, and sanguine drawings from photos.
AKVIS extends their product line with the new artistic tool which becomes their 22nd software product.
AKVIS Charcoal is a creative tool for conversion of photographs into charcoal and chalk drawings. Using the program you can make professional-looking expressive black and white images. You can also achieve outstanding artistic effects, such as sanguine and others, by playing with colors and options of the software.
The program lets you observe the conversion of your photo into a charcoal and chalk drawing in real time. It makes snapshots during processing and lets you choose between them. Thanks to this magnificent feature it's possible to create variations of drawings without adjusting the settings.
To make a drawing more authentic it's possible to apply a variety of canvas textures. With your signature on an image you can feel like a real artist, the author of a true work of art.
The program contains 34 ready to use presets which make it easier to work with the software and save you time. You can create your own presets saving your favorite combinations of the parameters.
