PostworkShop Pro 2 is the latest version of Xycod's innovative image editing software that gives artists, graphic designers, and photographers new avenues with which to express their digital creativity. It allows creatives to make digital fine artwork and graphics through the use of digital painting.
It is partially through the use of creative filters that PostworkShop Pro gets its power and while these kinds of filters have been available in other programs, they have provided a somewhat restrictive range of possibilities in provide the ability to generate artistic looks to photographs.
PostworkShop Pro changes this with the way that it implements these filters. First there are over 400 filters that are available to you in a wide range of styles from drawing, painting, graphic arts and more. These are further defined into subcategories giving you more possibilities to apply to your photos.
The next thing that really makes PostworkShop Pro fun is the way you can apply these filters. They are added to the photograph using a layer system. As with most layer systems you can add them above or below any particular layer and they will blend with the existing photograph and any other layer with which they interact. What is unique here is that you can also chain them with a particular layer so if you want to place a watercolor layer chained to a pencil drawing layer, they will blend together to form a unique style. Any style can be placed before or after another style or through chaining for differing looks.
Depending on the style that you choose, there are additional options available for enhanced creativity. These include things like number of brush strokes, length of the brushes, seed values and more which give you a lot of control over the look that you want to give to an image. You also have the ability to control the opacity as well so that if you want to add a pencil drawing feel to a water color, but you only want to let a little of it through, you can add the pencil drawing below the watercolor and set it to 20% opacity so only a little will show through.
