AKVIS Sketch is an application which allows you to apply several effects to your favorite image files.
The interface of the program is plain and simple to navigate through. Images can be imported via the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is allowed.
So, you can make a selection on the picture and apply various effects, such as watercolor, charcoal, coloration, smudging, strokes and edges, as well as choose a preset.
On top of that, you can change the background mode (sketch, sketch and photo, sketch and blur), add text and configure settings (e.g. font style and size, text, outline and glow color, position), and use a canvas (configure texture properties – repetition, reflection, alignment – and parameters - brightness, embossing, distortion).
In addition, you can check out the "before" and "after" images, as well as zoom in and out of a navigator, use the undo and redo functions, and more.
The simple-to-use program runs on a very high amount of system resources, contains a comprehensive step-by-step guide with snapshots and can be easily used by individuals of all levels, whether they are beginners or experienced. The sketch effects have a very good quality. We strongly recommend AKVIS Sketch to all users.
