Akvis Announces Chameleon 5.0 Photo Collage Software

Akvis Chameleon 5.0

Akvis today announced the update of its Chameleon photo collage plug-in to version 5.0. The software now has three modes to create photo collages: Montage, Chameleon and Blend.

In Montage mode, you don’t have to make precise selections to make it look real. See how this is done in this tutorial.

In Chameleon mode (earlier called Standard) the program adjusts the pasted fragment to the target image color range and smoothes the fragment’s borders. It looks similar to the way a chameleon adapts to the environment.

In Blend mode (earlier called Snapshot mode) the program does not only smooth the borders of the pasted fragment and adjusts its color range, but it also makes the object semi-transparent, so that the texture of the background can be seen through.

Akvis Chameleon can be used in many ways. You can create customized postcards for your loved ones; make a wedding album using all kinds of photos and backgrounds; correct closed eyes (by implanting open eyes from another photo of the series), change the appearance of a person, etc.
