AKVIS Releases New Image Editor—AliveColors for Mac and Windows

AKVIS releases all new AliveColors—new image editing software package for Mac and WIndows platforms.


AKVIS has announced its new image editor, AliveColors for Mac and Windows. AliveColors is a full-featured image editor that is meant to compete with both consumer-grade and pro tools like Adobe Photoshop in many areas. AliveColors comes in both a Home and Pro edition and is available on both Mac and Windows platforms.

Comprehensive and Affordable

AliveColors offers a comprehensive range of image editing features, letting users edit, retouch and enhance digital images in an easy software environment and at a cost much less than its several professional-oriented competitors. AKVIS says the developer’s goal with AliveColors was to give users the creative freedom to implement their design ideas using a single piece of software.

AliveColors is more than an image editor, it also supports vector-based graphics such as line drawings, logos, or information graphics using vector-based objects with text. On its image editing side, the program’s multipurpose tools support image adjustment tools, filters, effects and other image processing functions.

01 – AliveColors is a new comprehensive image-editing and graphics software package for Mac and Windows, from AKVIS, a company known for its many plugins for Photoshop and other image editors.

Noise reduction filters and blur effects help photographers deal with touching up existing and new photos, while tonal and color controls provide an array of prepress adjustment capabilities. Users can also create “HDR imagery” from AliveColors, edit RAW images, and combine multiple images into collages. Additionally, AliveColors supports plugins both by AKVIS (which sells plugins) and third-party developers.

Finally, AliveColors is multilingual and supports 4k and 5k displays; it is currently available in English, German, French, Italian, and Russian.
