Photos are a great way to preserve memories of the great places you visited on your vacations or the amazing parties you attended, but also of the emotional events in your life.
If you want to show off some of these images, you can also add them a touch of sophistication by converting them to pastel paintings. Due to AKVIS Pastel, your images can be instantly turned into professional-looking paintings without too much effort on your side.
Load an image and preview its pastel counterpart
Considering the application features an intuitive and user-friendly interface, you can get started with generating a pastel image within seconds.
You need to begin by selecting the image that you want to enhance, then experiment with the provided presets until you are satisfied with the result. You can preview it with a single mouse click, yet you need to keep in mind that rendering a large pastel painting can take a while, especially if it contains numerous colors.
Customize the stroke thickness and density of the pastel
You can customize the output pastel by adjusting various values regarding stroke thickness, intensity and density; the minimum and maximum stroke lengths can also be modified to your liking.
Additionally, you get to alter the paper color if you are looking to obtain a more artistic outcome, while also editing the lightening and smoothing values.
Apply a watermark on your pastel and share it online
AKVIS Pastel also enables you to overlay a text message over your newly created painting, then change its position, font type and size. You can enhance the text with a custom color, outline and glow, then preview the results in real-time.
Once you are pleased with the pastel, you can either save it to an image file on your computer, or you can share it directly online, via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Flickr or Tumblr.
