Perm, Russian Federation (PressExposure) January 25, 2008 -- AKVIS LLC announces the update of AKVIS Decorator plug-in to v.1.5.

With AKVIS Decorator you can create your own world! The program allows painting objects on a photo with astounding ease and with amazing results. You can apply a snake skin to your car, turn a man into an alien, change a dress on a girl, convert a wooden table into a golden one and anything else that you can imagine. See the examples here: http://akvis.com/en/decorator-tutorial/index.php .
Select an object on an image and apply new textures or/and colors to it. Unlike the "bucket-fill" tool in many photo editors, the plug-in follows the underlying features of the object, its folds and creases. The new pattern looks absolutely natural and makes you see things differently.
The program comes with a built-in Texture Library that offers a rich collection of over 1700 textures - from fabric to stones and metal, from food to animal fur and flowers. If it is not enough, you can apply your own textures â just save a square pattern as a jpg file and load it into the library.
Applying a fish scale to a carâs surface can be fun, but of more practical use is to apply AKVIS Decorator for design purposes. With this software you can quickly choose a suitable design for your apartment by playing with different colors and patterns for furniture, walls, curtains, decorations, etc. Itâs useful for designers to show the customers the same room in different versions or for web-designers to represent the same items in an online shop (china-ware, blankets, clothes, piece of furniture, etc) in different colors/patterns.
New to version 1.5: bugs fixed, Macintosh version is now a Universal Binary application.
