Chameleon: high-speed image editing

cameleon exampleOperating as a plug-in to photo editors including Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Jasc Paint Shop Pro and others, AKVIS Chameleon makes the insertion of new objects or the replacement of unwanted elements in digital photos simple even for users unskilled with photo editing software, since this tool does not require precise selection of objects. AKVIS Chameleon adjusts inserted objects to the new background, automatically adapting and blending to the new color range. (Click for large example)

AKVIS Chameleon creates photo collages in two modes, Standard and Snapshot. In Standard mode, one click automatically drops a selected item into a photo, adjusts it to the target color range and smooths the borders. The Snapshot mode layers the blended components so that the texture and relief of the primary image can be seen through.

The V.2.1 release of AKVIS Chameleon features image processing speed up to 30 times greater than its predecessor while requiring far less memory consumption. The program�s messaging and help features are now available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian.

Registered users of previous versions of AKVIS Chameleon are eligible to upgrade to V.2.1 for free by downloading and installing the new version.

Normally priced alone at USD $69.00, AKVIS Chameleon is also available in the AKVIS Alchemy bundle, which includes AKVIS�s entire family of photo editing plug-ins: Retoucher, Enhancer, Stamp and Chameleon, for only USD $199.00. A Microsoft Windows� 98/ME/2000/XP/NT or Macintosh OS X platform is required. AKVIS offers 10 days to evaluate their fully-functional software.
