Editor's review

The plug-in allows applying new textures/colors to a selected object in a realistic manner. For instance, a dress on a girl can be painted in patterns, dotted or chequered, appear as if made of velvet or satin, or even of wood or candies.

Pros: The Decorator plug-in lets texture maps to be added to surfaces in a picture. Part of image where the texture is to applied should be selected. The plug in ( for Adobe Photoshop in this example) has a wide variety of surface textures to choose from. They range from fabrics to stones and metal, from food to nature elements. The application takes care of the nature of the underlying surface so that the new texture applied looks natural.

While applying strange surface textures to objects gives rise to opportunities of sun, real applications can be in design and creative areas. Prior to painting a house, for example, one can actually see the effect of various colors applied to the walls and decide on a set of color rather than getting an awful effect later on, when it’s done already. Same goes for product designs too. Several parameters of the surface texture chosen can be chosen prior to applying the same. The interface lets you compare before and after effects side by side to let you decide if you want to retain the change and save the result. The parameters include the lighting angle too.

The user interface is really quite simple and it’s easy to figure out even for a complete newbie to get familiar quickly.

Cons: The surface texture collection could have been more extensive, particularly with practical surfaces like colors and their various finishes etc.

Overall: Easy to use application with a simple interface, it does the stated but limited purpose quite well. A 4 star effort without doubt.

Publisher's description

Have you ever seen a car made of brick? A statue dressed in fine clothes?
With AKVIS Decorator you can create things that were unimaginable even to Mother Nature.
The Decorator plug-in allows you to change the surface of an object in a realistic manner.
Select a part of an image - a dress on a girl, a car, a piece of furniture, etc, and apply new textures to it. The girl can have her dress painted in gay patterns, dotted or chequered, appear as if made of velvet or satin, or even of wood or candies. There is a great variety of built-in patterns to apply - from fabrics to stones and metal, from food to nature elements. Apply your own texture images. Just save a square pattern as a jpg file and load it into the library.
If all you need is just to change the color of the surface, then you go to the Color tab and choose a new color.
Applying a snake scale to a car’s surface can be fun, but of more practical use is to apply AKVIS Decorator for design purposes.
With this software you can quickly choose a suitable design for your apartment by playing with different colors and patterns for furniture, walls, curtains, decorations, etc. It’s useful for designers to show the customers the same room in different versions or for web-designers to represent the same items in an online shop (china-ware, blankets, clothes, piece of furniture, etc) in different colors/patterns.
It's a plugin to image editors (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro Photo, etc.) The plugin installed into the image processing programs and launched into them.
