AKVIS LLC announces the update of AKVIS Frame Suite v.2.6 for Windows and Macintosh. The program applies frames and edge effects to pictures. For the upcoming holidays, new Christmas decorations have been added to the Pattern Library. Creating greeting cards from your photos is now fun and easy!
Whether you plan to upload holiday photos on a web-site to share with your friends or you wish to decorate a personalized Christmas greeting card, you can rely on AKVIS Frame Suite -- it will add elegance and style to any photo.
AKVIS Frame Suite is an impressing collection of edge effects. Thanks to its 12 effects and a rich Pattern Library, the software can generate an endless number of photo frame versions (from classic to most fancy ones).
For the upcoming holidays, new Christmas decorations have been added to the Pattern Library. Screenshots of the program's features are available at http://akvis.com/en/frame-suite/screenshots-photo-framing.php
It is also possible to generate a unique frame out of your own samples. Just save a square or rectangular pattern as a graphic file and use it to generate an original photo frame. The result can be astounding!
Photo frames that come with Frame Suite can be easily tailored to your particular photo. Select a color for the frame; choose its form, its style, brightness, and the intensity of the applied edge effect. You can create a frame with ragged edges, scratched surface, a page curl, etc. It can be a wooden frame with figured carving or a frame with an ornament.
If you enjoy working with layers, you will appreciate the possibility to apply a transparent frame, so that the lower layer(s) could serve as background.
One can not only apply frames. The "Texture" effect allows applying a texture (chosen from the built-in Texture Library or one created by the user) to an image so that the image looks like drawn on a canvas, brick wall, corrugated paper, etc. Example: http://akvis.com/en/frame-suite-tutorial/frames/texture.php
The program is available in two versions - as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor.
AKVIS Frame Suite Plugin is compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter, Corel Photo-Paint, and Paint Shop Pro, ACD FotoCanvas, and Ulead PhotoImpact.
AKVIS Frame Suite runs on Microsoft Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista and on Macintosh Mac OS X 10.5, PowerPC G3 and above.
