This software offers 17 groups of versatile effects and a built-in library for decorating photos, creating postcards and personalized desktop wallpapers. Users can create endless versions of effects to give their media an original and festive look.
One of the most notable features of ArtSuite is the wide range of basic effects it offers. These effects can be combined in a multitude of ways to create an endless number of effect versions. The effects are grouped into Frames and Effects, making it easy to find exactly what you're looking for.
The Frames category offers a vast array of classic frames with wood carving or fun borders with cheerful frogs. You can easily tailor any frame sample to your particular photo. You can choose the color, form, style, brightness, and intensity of the applied edge effect. If you're feeling creative, you can even create your own unique frames! Simply save a square or rectangular pattern as a graphic file and use it to generate an original photo frame.
In addition to Frames, ArtSuite also offers a wide range of Effects that allow you to experiment with your photos. You can convert a photo into a black and white image and add a color shade to it, replace colors on an image, or add a texture chosen from the built-in Texture Library or one created by you. With ArtSuite, your images will look like they were drawn on a canvas, brick wall, or corrugated paper, and much more.
The program is available in two versions, as a standalone program or as a plug-in to a photo editor. The plug-in version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, and more. You can use the software free of charge for ten days to get a feel for how it works and try out all of its features.
Overall, AKVIS ArtSuite is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to add an original and festive look to their photos. With its impressive collection of frames and effects, there's no limit to what you can create!
