AKVIS Chameleon 2019 Mac is an efficient tool for photo collage creation. This ingenious software makes the process easy and entertaining. Earlier one had to thoroughly select an object before pasting it into a new background; with this software this tedious part of work drops out. You can concentrate on the creative part and forget about complicated selection techniques.
You can use AKVIS Chameleon in many ways. You can create customized postcards for your loved ones; make a wedding album using all kinds of photos and backgrounds; correct closed eyes, change the appearance of a person, etc.
Chameleon can be used for custom web design, greeting cards, promotional materials, logos, and wallpapers. You can combine images with entirely different color ranges, to create the effect of drawing on a texture surface, and all that with only a mouse-click.
The software works in four modes:
- 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.
- The object does not change its color range or opacity, only its edges adapt to the new environment and get smoothed.
- This mode is good to use for creating photo collages with people.
- 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.
- 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.
- The difference between the two is that in Emersion 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.
