AKVIS Sketch photo software
AKVIS Sketch is an award-winning program for conversion of photos into pencil sketches and watercolor drawings. Make any photo look like a B&W or color drawing, imitate the technique of graphite or color pencil, charcoal or watercolor painting. The program works in an entertaining way. It allows observing the conversion of a photo into a drawing / watercolor in real time and even interrupting the process when the required result is achieved.

Software features
Version 7.0 offers special effects that make the final photo more impressive. Create a blend of the final drawing and the original image; imitate motion or add "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.

These manipulations are easy to perform thanks to the Keep/Drop pencils. To define the effect area, no complicated selection tools are needed. For example, to single out one person at a party, you can draw a rough outline within the figure with the blue pencil, and cut off the background with the green (blur) pencil. When the image is processed, the background will be blurred in a special way - it may look like a slight haze; or be in motion, as if everything around is passing by like on a highway; or the background can swirl like in a sci-fi film. It all depends on the effect settings.

Pencil Drawings

Many photo editing enthusiasts have already appreciated the Sketch's features. Take a look at a gallery of examples created by AKVIS software users. Sketch can be used on many occasions. Surprise friends and relatives by presenting them their pencil portraits. Make a watercolor drawing out of a photo from a last nature shooting to decorate a room. Convert a photo into a color sketch to print on a T-shirt. Create a comic out of party videos. The conversion software can be helpful to designers who need to quickly bring images to one style for a web-site or an advertisement booklet.

Photography Software

AKVIS Photography Software
AKVIS Sketch has a simple interface with a few sliders. At first a user 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. He or she can make the hatching denser or finer and change the pitch angle of strokes. After that, the user can apply a texture to imitate a painting on a canvas. Using batch processing in Photoshop or Paint Shop pro (only for the plug-in version) a user can even convert a film into a cartoon.
