AKVIS NatureArt is an excellent tool for imitating the magnificence of natural phenomena on your digital photos. It also lets you create nature scenes from scratch, such as converting a blank background into a sea view or a night sky with scattered, glistening stars.

If a photo looks a bit lifeless and dull, you can add some dramatic nature effects by putting the sun or even a lightning bolt on it, and by adding rain or snow.

In fact the same photo can look differently if we change the weather on it. The spirit of the scene changes dramatically - from a

I downloaded this and ran it through it's paces on a couple of images. It hung on a couple but succeeded when repeating the task on the same files, go figure. The actual effects themselves were unconvincing to me, but others might like them, or perhaps with more effort you might do better.

Interface wise it's a disgrace really. Very obvious lazy port over from Windows - and it would be bug ugly there too. They use a non-standard Open... dialogue. Why? Is there an advantage - apart from demonstrating laziness? There is certainly a disadvantage: In the standard Mac Open... dialogue. There we can search and access our photos in iPhoto or Aperture without having to export them first. Let's face it, your Open dialogue is no improvement on the standard one, so what, apart from just being a lazy port from Windows, is the point?

Overall: Meh.

Version 1.5 now available on developer's website seems to work well.
Possible effects are very interesting.

I really do not see the problem, I usually put images right into the program work space, they allow this feature. Very comfortable for me.

AKVIS NatureArt is an excellent tool for imitating the magnificence of natural phenomena on your digital photos. It also lets you create nature scenes from scratch, such as converting a blank background into a sea view or a night sky with scattered, glistening stars.

If a photo looks a bit lifeless and dull, you can add some dramatic nature effects by putting the sun or even a lightning bolt on it, and by adding rain or snow.

In fact the same photo can look differently if we change the weather on it. The spirit of the scene changes dramatically - from a ferocious thunderstorm to an optimistic shiny day, from the woods in flame to a melancholic rainy scene. Nature effects have an impact on our mood and it can be used to strengthen the impression from a picture.

The effects are easy to add and adjust. You can also use the ready-to-use AKVIS presets to get a quick result. They help you start working. They can be applied "as is" or can be modified. You can save your favorite settings as a preset and use them in the future.

AKVIS NatureArt is available in two versions - as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor.
