Enhance your photographs by adding light elements

7.2.1732 (See all)

AKVIS LightShop is intended to enhance your photographs by adding light elements, such as stars and glows. Luckily, the tool is quite easy to use, even more so if you are already familiar with other programs by the same developer.

It's interface is very intuitive with a convenient layout. In this respect, most of the window is devoted to rendering the image being edited. Likewise, it is good that there are two working modes. For instance, you can turn to Express mode if you prefer working with fewer options and features. Regrettably, editing two projects simultaneously is not allowed.

Good news is there are multiple effects to choose from. Besides, they can be easily found and tried as they are carefully organized into categories. Once you find the desired effect, you can continue customizing it, which you can do by dragging size handlers and changing a few parameters. In this regard, the availability of several blending modes is crucial to making the newly added effect look natural. It is a shame that there are limitations as to the number of effects you can add in a single work session.

In short, AKVIS LightShop can certainly make your picture more interesting to the eyes of others. The product is available both as a stand-alone program and a plugin for third-party picture-enhancing tools. Similarly, it can be purchased by different licenses. Thus, the features you get depend on the license you buy and the amount of money spent.
