Many people think that a painting looks better than a simple picture. The goal of AKVIS ArtWork is to help you transform your favorite images and make them look like as if they were painted.
AKVIS ArtWork offers seven great looking painting effects (oil, watercolor, gouache, comics, pen & ink, line-out and pastel) that will allow you to embellish your pictures. Each of the effects is fully customizable, giving you a chance to bring the end result as close to perfection as possible.

I really liked the attention to details that the AKVIS ArtWork team has shown. With this program you will not only be able to add texts to your paintings, but also determine the texture and parameters of the canvass you are using, down to the smallest details.

The only problem that I found while testing the application was that some changes took a long while to process. If I'm using a 3.00 Ghz Dual Core CPU and 4 Gigabytes of RAM and still have to wait for my changes to be applied, people who work on low-end computers will surely have some problems.

In my opinion, AKVIS ArtWork is definitely worth its price. The painting effects that it offers look great, so, if you are an art fan, this program probably shouldn't miss from your collection.
