AKVIS Sketch is a program for conversion of photos into pencil sketches and watercolor drawings. It can make any photo look like a black-and-white or color drawing, and it can imitate the techniques of graphite or color pencils, charcoal, or watercolor painting. The program works in an entertaining way. It allows you to observe the conversion of a photo into a drawing or watercolor in real time, and even lets you interrupt the process when the required result is achieved. Its special effects can be used to create a blend of a drawing and a photo, imitate motion, or add a "time machine effect" by swirling the background. It can accentuate certain parts of an image by blurring the rest of it.
AKVIS HDRFactory creates HDR images from a series of photographs taken at different exposures or from a single photograph. This technique generates stylized images with fabulous colors and unique effects. The software also includes an efficient deghosting tool for removing artifacts that sometimes appear when combining photos with moving objects. It can also be used for photo correction.
