AKVIS Points lets you transform your photos into paintings using the technique of pointillism. Pointillism is a painting technique characterized by applying of separate brush strokes in the form of dots or spots. This style is an offshoot of Impressionism. A complex hue is decomposed into individual colors, which are displayed on the canvas as dotted strokes, small dabs of paint of pure color. The optical mixing of these dots gives us the visual perception of an entire painting.
This is exactly how a computer screen represents images: the pixels are like the dots in pointillist paintings. With the AKVIS Points software you can easily create gorgeous works of art using the pointillism technique. Make paintings in the style of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac! Discover the world of bright colors!
The software includes ready-to-use AKVIS presets which help you start working. It’s possible to create your own presets by saving your favorite photo-to-painting settings. The program offers the choice between a flat paper and a rough surface that makes the impression even more vivid. It’s also possible to add a signature, an inscription, or a copyright watermark to the picture. The software supports the Batch Processing feature which helps you to automatically convert a series of images with the same effect settings. It is useful when you need to create a number of paintings at the same style for a book or a blog or to convert a video into a cartoon with the pointillism technique.
