AKVIS ArtSuite is photo decoration software that allows you to apply effects or add frames to your photos. Sample photo frames that come with ArtSuite can be easily tailored to your particular photo by choosing its color, form, style, brightness, and the intensity of the applied edge effect. You can use any picture as a pattern to generate an original photo frame. With artistic effects, you can convert a photo into a black and white image and add a color shade to it (for example, sepia effect), replace colors on an image, and add a texture so that the image looks like drawn on a surface such as canvas, wall, or corrugated paper. The Glamour effect conceals skin defects and reduces small wrinkles.
AKVIS ArtWork is designed to imitate different painting techniques by creating a work of art from any digital photo. It offers two painting styles - Oil Painting and Comics.

It also offers a wide selection of canvas and artist signatures to make your painting a finished product, ready to be printed poster-size and hung on a wall. It is available as a stand-alone application as well as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop etc.
AKVIS Chameleon is an efficient tool for photo collage creation. It eliminates the tedium of selecting an object with a complicated shape for pasting into a new background.

Blend mode both adjusts the color range and smooths the object's borders and also makes the object semi-transparent.
