AKVIS ArtSuite is a photo decoration software that allows you to add effects or frames to your photos. The effects are divided into two categories: Edge Effects and Artistic Effects. The program offers a rich library of patterns and textures for generating picture frames ranging from sophisticated classic frames to fresh, contemporary designs - strokes, scratches, squares, page curls, and many others. Among available artistic effects there are Channel Mixer, Glamour, Two Keys, Halftone Effect, etc.
Version 12 offers the new Passe-Partout frame that opens up a lot of design possibilities and helps catch the viewer's eye to direct it to the motif.
The Halftone effect has been improved and now provides better performance on large-scale images.
When applying a frame effect, you now can select the presets directly from the Presets panel. Also, there is a number of built-in AKVIS presets for each frame type.
The new version provides more customization options by adding the new Gray interface color.
Also, support for new RAW files for the standalone version has been added and some bugs have been fixed.
