AKVIS Noise Buster is a image editor plug-in for noise suppression on digital and scanned images. AKVIS Noise Buster reduces both luminance and chroma (color) noise on digital images without spoiling other aspects of the photo. The plug-in's window shows "before" and "after" images for instant preview and easy tweaking of the parameters. Separate setting areas for luminance and chroma noise allow you to deal with each kind of noise in the most efficient way. It is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop pro, etc.
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 SmartMask plug-in is an efficient selection tool. There are two pencils: blue and red. You draw a line with the blue pencil inside the object you want to select, and with the red pencil some lines outside the object to define the areas that should be cut out. The plugin offers three modes: Sharp, Soft, and Complex.
AMC is a programmable compiler/preprocessor. It has a built-in programming language called CGL (Code Generation Language) that lets you add new syntactical elements to the source files that AMC processes. In addition, AMC has a module structure reminescent of the UCSD p-System compiler. AMC comes with a default package that adds a dynamic form of OOP to C.
