AKVIS LLC has updated its AKVIS ArtSuite to version v.3.0. ArtSuite was earlier known as Frame Suite; the name change according to the company reflects the new approach to the program.
The software has been enriched with new effects that do not necessarily fall into the Photo Frames category. The new version offers three new artistic effects: Black & White, Shift Colors, and Channel Mixer. With its 15 effects and a rich Pattern Library, the software can generate an endless number of effect versions.
ArtSuite 3.0 can be used as an independent application (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor such as Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter, Corel Photo-Paint, and Paint Shop Pro, ACD FotoCanvas, and Ulead PhotoImpact.
AKVIS ArtSuite is downloadable from akvis.com for $49 USD, with a fully functional 10-day trial version if you wish to try it first.
