There are times when you feel the need to bring some life to your photos. This is when a program like AKVIS NatureArt can be really useful, as it allows you to apply some well designed nature effects to your pictures.
With AKVIS NatureArt you will be able to add effects like lightning, rain, clouds, water, frost, fire, ice or sun. A thing that I like is that there are a lot of customizations settings that you can use, so that in the end your effects will look exactly as you want them to.
AKVIS NatureArt allows you to create an image from scratch or edit any picture that you have stored on your hard drive. One of the problems that you might encounter while using this application is that, the more effects you add, the slower the program will process them. This is why users might encounter some difficulties when trying to run the application on low-end computers.
The drawback that I really couldn't overlook was the cursor that you use when selecting the area where your effect should appear. No matter what I did, I couldn't change its shape, so I was stuck using a round cursor. That's not very practical when you are dealing with corners and sharp angles.
As a personal conclusion, I think that AKVIS NatureArt offers some nice looking effects and I would characterize it as a decent application. However, its price is pretty high and I'm not sure that it's actually worth this much money.
