CHAMELEON V.8.5 - review
PHOTO COLLAGE CREATION
AKVIS Chameleon is an efficient tool for photo collage creation.The program makes the process easy and entertaining. You can fully concentrate on the creative part and forget about complicated selection techniques. It does not require precise selection of objects!
The software works in four modes:
1. Montage Mode. In this mode the program combines images to create a seamless photo montage. It transfers selected objects to a new background and makes the irrelevant parts of the pasted fragment fade away. This mode is good to use for creating photo collages with people (pasting a person into a new background).
2. Chameleon Mode. In this mode the program adjusts the pasted fragment to the target image color range and smoothes the object's borders. It looks similar to the way a chameleon adapts to the environment.
3. Blend Mode. In this mode the program does not only smoothen the borders of the pasted object and adjusts its color range, but it also makes the object semi-transparent, so that the texture and the relief of the primary image can be seen through. Use this mode if you want to "dissolve" the pasted image in the background.
4. Emersion Mode. In this mode the pasted fragment does not overlay the background, but embeds into the background so that only certain parts of the fragment are visible. This mode allows making montages with difficult objects (trees, etc).
With this program you can create customized postcards for your loved ones; make a wedding album using all kinds of photos and backgrounds; correct closed eyes (by implanting open eyes from another photo of the series), change the appearance of a person, etc. You can combine images with entirely different color ranges, to create the effect of drawing on a texture surface (crumpled paper, wood, etc), and all that with only a mouse-click.
AKVIS Chameleon is available in two versions – as a standalone and as a plugin.The pluginversion is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro, etc. The program is delivered in Home, Home Deluxe and in Business License versions. The software is available in versions for Windows and Mac OS X.
