Akvis Sketch 6.0

Akvis has released Akvis Sketch 6.0, an update to its application for converting photos into pencil sketches or watercolor drawings. The latest revision of the software enables users to add a canvas or any other textured surface to a picture, and works as a standalone application or a plug-in for various photo editing applications. The canvas feature adds a textured surface to a picture to imitate a drawing on a canvas, corrugated paper, brick wall, or other surfaces. Akvis Sketch 6.0 also brings compatibility with Photoshop Elements 6.0 as well as Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Akvis Sketch is priced at $75 for home users, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. Upgrades are available for free to existing users.

AKVIS Sketch offers a simple interface with several sliders that enable users to process an image with the default settings, and touch up the photo later by adding color or trying different techniques -- from pencil to charcoal or watercolor. Users can change hatching density, and the software supports changing the pitch angle of strokes. After configuring a canvas users can apply the texture to imitate a painting on a canvas, according to the company. The plug-in edition also allows batch processing in Photoshop as well as Paint Shop Pro.
