 This excellent standalone program will give high quality results in coloring B/W photos, sketches, anime and manga as well as change colors only in defined areas of the picture. It works equally well for coloring of portraits, landscapes, fashion, and still life. The preset skin, sky, greenery, and tree color patterns help users to select realistic colors for their picture and up and until now was only available as a plugin requiring photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Photo-Paint, Paint Shop pro, Bodypaint, etc.

As usual with Akvis software it is a very simple process you take the Pencil tool, select a color and draw a rough outline within the area to be colorized; the program recognizes the borders and paints in the new color keeping the tone transitions. No layers manipulation, no manual painting! There are many preset color types for skin, eyes, fabrics, wood etc. or you can define your own. The ability to change colors rapidly makes it ideal for interior and exterior designers to try different color schemes on screen or you could see what you would look like with a change of hair color, the possibilities are huge.

This is impressive software and has the usual high quality Akvis tutorials and support supplied and I highly recommend it.
