It’s hard to compete with nature in diversity and man has still much to learn from it. We are not able to create the Earth in seven days, but we can imitate some of its natural phenomena in digital art. AKVIS NatureArt is an excellent tool for imitating the magnificence of natural phenomena on your photos.
The software lets you apply weather effects to your picture or create nature scenes from scratch, 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 effects by putting the shining sun or a marvelous rainbow, or even a lightning bolt on it, and by adding rain or snow, or a misty fog.
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 can be used to strengthen the impression made by a picture.
The software offers these nature effects:
Rain, Sun, Water, Lightning, Clouds, Frost, Rainbow, and Aurora.
From 11 basic effects it’s possible to create an even wider variety of natural phenomena: make snow from rain, transform the sun into the moon or a star, get moss from frost, create clouds-based fog, and much more! With AKVIS NatureArt you can become a master of fire and lightning… You can become a wizard!
The effects in NatureArt are easy to add and adjust. Just select an area in the image and apply the effect. You can also use the ready-to-use AKVIS Presets for each effect to get a quick result. 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. It’s possible to import/export users presets and share them with other fans of the program.
