mac default iconAKVIS Sketch For Mac Publisher's description

AKVIS Sketch converts photos into pencil sketches and watercolor paintings.

AKVIS Sketch converts photos into pencil sketches and watercolor paintings.

Now you do not need to handle a pencil to feel like an artist. All you need to create your original work of art is good taste and AKVIS Sketch.

Our efficient method creates realistic color and B&W drawings that imitate the technique of graphite and color pencil, charcoal and watercolor painting.

In contrast to standard filters (like the built-in filters in Photoshop or PSP) that offer an approximate sketch, AKVIS Sketch comes very close to the hand-drawn works of a human artist. Getting a similar result with the standard tools would require expertise in image editing and extensive manipulation with layers, masks, brushes and applying filters.

AKVIS Sketch can add background effects to the resulting pencil drawing. Create a blend of a drawing and a photo; imitate motion or add a “time machine effect” by swirling the background. Put an accent to certain parts of the image by blurring the rest of it in an artistic way. It proves especially useful when the final drawing contains too many details on the background that divert attention.

You can personalize your work of art by adding an inscription (a signature or a greeting) to your pencil drawing. Also, the parameters on the Canvas let you add a rough surface to your image, as if it had been drawn on canvas, corrugated paper, brick wall, etc.

AKVIS Sketch has a neat interface with a few sliders. At first you can process the image with the default settings and then touch up the photo adding color, or trying different techniques - from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. You can make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes, or add/remove the original colors.

What's New in This Release:

* Added the new Smudging parameter which creates the effect of smearing hatching in midtone areas of a drawing.
* Improved algorithm of getting semi-processed images: now it becomes simpler and more exact. The conversion can be stopped by pressing Esc or Stop button.
* Added the list of recent files, visible by right mouse click on Load Image.
* Fixed small bugs.

System Requirements:

* PPC / Intel
* Mac OS X 10.4.6 or later
* Adobe Photoshop CS3, CS4
