ArtSuite 4.0 incorporates 'glamour,' color effects

AKVIS ArtSuite 4.0 ships

AKVIS has released the fourth major version of ArtSuite, one of its phone enhancement programs. The software is used to add simple effects to images, primarily frames such as ragged or wood edges, a curling page, or another photo. Users can additionally change the image itself through tools such as a channel mixer, a black-and-white converter, and texture selection.

The updated ArtSuite introduces the "Glamour" effect, which attempts to mimic fashion magazines by adjusting skin tone, and smoothing out blemishes without completely eliminating healthy details. Also new to the software is the "Two Keys" effect, which automatically adjusts the color, contrast and brightness of a photo on the basis of two selected colors.

The software runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or better, and costs $50. It can operate solo or as a plug-in, in the latter case with separate versions for Photoshop CS3/Elements 6 or Photoshop 6-CS2/Elements 1-4.

    I've downloaded this product but can't seem to add "wood edges" to my iPhone.

    phone tool

    Yeah, I tried to enhance my phone with it too, but it's still a Motorola. Maybe one of the other titles in the suite will help.
