Alien Skin Snap Art 3 Plug-In

Alien Skin Software announced Snap Art® 3, the new version of its artistic natural media plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop®, Photoshop Elements, and Photoshop Lightroom®. Snap Art turns a photo into a beautiful work of art that looks completely handmade. You make the creative choices while Snap Art takes care of all the tedious work of drawing brush strokes.

Snap Art can render hundreds of styles and media, such as oil paint, watercolor, pencil sketch, and newly added ones like crayon. It is easy to try different styles until you find the perfect look to capture the natural beauty of the subject. Snap Art mimics the techniques of human artists, such as layered brush strokes and enhancement of important edges. Version 3 uses more refined stroke placement, making the subject natural and recognizable.

With Snap Art 3’s improved realism, portrait photographers can offer elegant paintings as a premium service. Once a Snap Art creation is printed on canvas and framed, it looks like a handcrafted work of art.

Using Snap Art simply requires a creative idea, not hand-eye coordination or technical training. Simply browse the presets to find a style appropriate for your photo. You can tweak a few sliders to customize the look, but most of the time this is not necessary. If you do want more control, the new detail mask let’s you quickly mark areas where you want the subject to be clearer. This lets you make a portrait absolutely perfect for crucial jobs like wedding portraits.

The Snap Art 3 interface has been completely redesigned for better ease of use. All the presets are now in one place for easier browsing. The preview is also progressively rendered to give faster feedback.

Snap Art 3 will be available in August 2011 through for $199 USD. Owners of Snap Art 1 or 2 may upgrade for $99 USD. Free upgrades will be automatically sent to everyone who purchased Snap Art 2 directly from Alien Skin Software in April 2011 or later.
