Akvis Sketch v.6.0 is now out, offering a new effect that gives an artistic touch to a photo that has been converted as a drawing or watercolor painting by adding a canvas or any other textured surface like corrugated paper, brick wall, metallic or ceramic coating.
The new version also adds a new Canvas tab with the settings for the new effect and a Texture Library with texture samples.
Sketch 6.0 has also been tweaked for compatibility with Photoshop Elements 6.0 and the new Mac OS X v.10.5 or Leopard.
The upgrade of course is free for registered users of Akvis Sketch. Users who’ve tried the previous version of the software and have their version expired, now have an opportunity to test the software again (ain’t that nice?).
Sketch 6.0 is available as a stand-alone application and as a Photoshop plug-in. $72, the price.
