Amberlight released at introductory price on App Store

Escape Motions has announced the official release of Amberlight for Windows and Mac OS. Described as similar to fractal programs, Amberlight is equipped with original mathematics and an easy-to-use interface, and is intended to be accessible to beginner artists as well as useful for advanced users. Featuring unique math algorithms, Amberlight can produce complex visual patterns and gradients for one's images. The art tool can create high-resolution pictures for print media, and includes a high-performance renderer.




Amberlight is presently available from Escape Motions' site, and priced at a 50 percent discount during the first two weeks of its debut for eligible users of the company's All Flame Painter software. Amberlight is due to be available from the Mac App store this week at an introductory price of $15.

Akvis' OilPaint available as a standalone application and as a Photoshop plugin

Image processing software maker, Akvis, has announced its release of OilPaint, a program that mimics an artistic application of brush strokes like that of an oil painting. Using a unique algorithm, OilPaint allows users to apply paint-like texture to existing photos, simulating the look of a handmade painting. Featuring a number of preset options, OilPaint can instantaneously transform the aesthetic of a photograph. Users can also automatically process a series of images with its Batch Processing function.



Available for both Windows and Mac OS, OilPaint can be purchased for $50 for a Home version (either as a plugin or standalone); $70 for a Home Deluxe (including plugin and standalone); and a commercial, Business version for $80. A 10-day trial is available for download online.
