Alien Skin Software Announces Snap Art 3 Artistic Natural Media Plug-In for Photoshop
Photos are quickly turned into paintings or sketches that look handmade. New intelligent stroke placement creates clean edges and natural stroke patterns. New tools make it easy to mark areas that should get more detail.
Raleigh, North Carolina – June 6, 2011 – Alien Skin Software today announced Snap Art® 3, the new version of its artistic natural media plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop®, Photoshop Elements, and Photoshop Lightroom®. Snap Art turns a photo into a beautiful work of art that looks completely handmade. You make the creative choices while Snap Art takes care of all the tedious work of drawing brush strokes.
“I think our Snap Art fans will be impressed with how much more natural the results are in version 3,” said Tom Welsh, the designer of Snap Art. “The new interface makes it extremely easy to create custom artistic effects.”
Snap Art mimics the techniques of human artists, such as layered brush strokes and enhancement of important edges. Version 3 uses more refined stroke placement, making the subject natural and recognizable.
With Snap Art 3’s improved realism, portrait photographers can offer elegant paintings as a premium service. Once a Snap Art creation is printed on canvas and framed, it looks like a handcrafted work of art.
Ease of Use
If you do want more control, the new detail mask let’s you quickly mark areas where you want the subject to be clearer. This lets you make a portrait absolutely perfect for crucial jobs like wedding portraits.
The Snap Art 3 interface has been completely redesigned for better ease of use. All the presets are now in one place for easier browsing. The preview is also progressively rendered to give faster feedback.
