As usual Akvis have produced a winner with their latest addition ArtSuite. The Edge/Frame effects let you generate a photo frame for your photo, add elegance and style to your image by putting it into a classic frame with wood carving or create a funny picture by adding it some cheerful frogs along the border. Photo frames samples that come with ArtSuite can be easily tailored to your particular photo. Select a color for the frame; choose its form, its style, brightness, and the intensity of the applied edge effect. You can create a frame with ragged edges, scratched surface, a page curl, etc. It can be a wooden frame with figured carving or a frame with an ornament. If you enjoy working with layers, you will appreciate the possibility to apply a transparent frame, so that the lower layer(s) serve as a background.Create your own unique frames! Save a square or rectangular pattern as a graphic file and use it to generate an original photo frame. The results can be amazing.!

The artistic effects allow experimentation with photos convert a photo into a B&W image and consequently add a color shade to it; replace colors on an image, add a texture (chosen from the built-in Texture Library or one created by the user) so that the image looks like drawn on a canvas, brick wall, corrugated paper, etc.

As I have come to expect with Akvis ease of use is the norm and the usual excellent online tutorial will smooth out any problems you may have. The program comes as either a standalone version or as a plugin. Check compatibility here .
