AKVIS Points for macOS and Windows turns images into pointillism paintings. This painting technique is characterized by applying of separate brush strokes in the form of dots or spots.
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 provides a visual perception of an entire painting.
With the AKVIS Points software you can make paintings in the style of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. The software includes ready-to-use presets for the pointillism effect 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 that helps you to automatically convert a series of images with the same effect settings. It’s 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.
The software runs on macOS 10.10 and higher. It’s available as a standalone program and as a plugin filter for Adobe Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro, and other image editors.
Pricing for AKVIS Points ranges from US$39 to $72 depending on the license type.
