AKVIS OilPaint is photo to painting software that creates oil paintings from photographs. The characteristic feature of the program is a unique algorithm of the artistic application of brush strokes that authentically reproduces the technique of the real brush.

Creating a painting in oil colors is long and complicated process. Usually it may take months. With this cutting-edge software you can become a painter and turn your photos into paintings in just a few minutes!

Even if you are not a professional painter you can create your own masterpiece! Just use AKVIS OilPaint to turn a regular photo into an oil painting.  The mysterious production of a painting happens right before your eyes. The program creates a work of art that looks like a handmade oil painting.

Personalize your work of art by adding a signature or a greeting! To make the painting even more realistic you can adjust the canvas.
The program offers a number of ready to use Presets that let you familiarize yourself with the features of the software. The Batch Processing support lets you automatically convert a series of images with the same settings.
Adjusting the density, texture, and thickness of the brush strokes, you can not only enhance the volume and get impressive effects, but also find your own painting style.

AKVIS OilPaint is available as a standalone program and as a Photoshop plugin.

My Review

I love this program !  Being an Art Major, it really appeals to me as at times I don’t have time to spend on painting a real painting. I can see many uses for this program, even for those doing desktop publishing and those who might want to make their own cards, scrapbooking and other projects. It works well for a blogger/reviewer also. You will love this program and If you have photoshop it works as a plugin also.  This is one awesome program !

My Review

This is the second Language Lessons we have reviewed and I have to say I really like it. Faith has a desire to learn french and well this is giving her a great start !  This way of learning is so much easier for the children and for me too. It allows me to do things while the children are learning and just for listening I pick up the language to myself.

I would highly recommend the Pinsleur way of learning to everyone !

Do you want to make your own handwriting worsheets, using bible verses or poems you love ? Are you kids tired of traditional workbooks for penmanship ? Well this may be the answer for your home or home-school !

 

My Review

I absolutely loved this program and will continue to use it for years to come. The kids really  grew tired of using a workbook and the same thing all the time to learn penmanship.  Repetitive practice gets old.  Well this software program is wonderful.  I can use anything we are studying to make the worsheets. I have used Bible verses, Poems, Things from history and it is so much more customizable to what we are doing instead of some canned penmanship book.  I really love this software, its has the benefit of using graphics to  enhance your worksheets as well, making them extra special for your students.  I highly recommend this to all my homeschool Mamma friends !
