Alien Skin Software Announces Snap Art 4 – Turns Photos Into Paintings or Sketches That Look Handmade
Increased drawing speed and updated user interface make it easier to explore artistic styles
Raleigh, NC (October 9, 2013) – Alien Skin Software today announced Snap Art® 4, the new version of its artistic natural media application for photographers. Snap Art 4 transforms a photo into a beautiful work of art that looks completely handcrafted. It features a redesigned user interface and improved speed. Snap Art 4 can be used as a plug-in with popular host software or as a standalone program for even greater flexibility.
Snap Art 4 can render hundreds of styles and media, such as oil paint, pencil sketch, watercolor, and crayon. It mimics the techniques of human artists, such as layered brush strokes and enhancement of important edges. Snap Art takes care of all the tedious work of drawing brush strokes. For more control, the masking tool can bring out extra detail in areas that need it.
“Using Snap Art 4 simply requires a creative idea, not hand-eye coordination or technical training,” said Terence Tay, designer of the new Snap Art 4 software. “Thanks to Snap Art 4’s realistic effects, even aspiring photographers can create prints that are worthy of hanging in a gallery.”
Snap Art 4’s user interface was completely rewritten to make it easy to create great artwork. Across the board, everything in Snap Art is faster and more responsive. The modern dark color scheme reduces distractions around the image. The new visual preset browser shows how each preset will look when applied to an image. In addition, favorites and recently used presets are just a click away.
Snap Art 4 integrates with many popular photography tools: Adobe® Photoshop®, Lightroom®, and now Apple® Aperture®. Snap Art 4 can now also be launched as a standalone application.
