Have you ever wished your favorite photo was an oil painting? Well I know a few of my favorite beach pictures would look great as an oil painting. Now that AKVIS Software has released a new Photoshop plugin and stand alone application called OilPaint you can turn photographs into oil paintings. OilPaint features a new brush stroke algorithm that more closely imitates real brush strokes.
I love how easy the OilPaint program is to use. It also has the ability to share your work directly with many social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumbler and Flickr. There is also a mix slider in OilPaint that mixes the brush strokes with the original image to smooth the oil effect.
Photographers who like to give their photos an oil paint look should most certainly look into the OilPaint Software. Photographers who already own other AKVIS Software should check out the new brush stroke algorithm and compare it to what they are using now. I really like the Oil Paint effect generated by the OilPaint program.
AKVIS offers a FREE 10 day trial of their software and you don't even have to register for the trial! Just download and install the software. The price for the AKVIS OilPaint is nicely priced at $49 for the Home Edition, $69 for the Home Deluxe Edition and $89 for the Business License.
