AKVIS ArtSuite Version 9.0 is a collection of versatile effects for decorating photos like framing your photos, creating personalized greeting cards and posters, and jazzing up your family album.
Akvis said the program contains many templates and texture samples for any goal (Halloween, Wedding, Christmas, Birthday, etc) that can be used to create a virtually limitless variety of options for generating frames. You can also apply the artistic effects: convert a photo into a B&W image and add a sepia effect, replace or correct colors on an image, or add a texture, and much more.
The software is available for both Windows and Macintosh as a standalone program and as a plugin for image editors. Version 9.0 adds the new Halftone effect, new ready-to-use presets, compatibility with Mac OS X 10.8.
