According to the press release "Snap Art creates beautiful, natural media artwork in a single step." This plug in consists of 10 Photoshop compatible plug-in filters, each of which creates a very distinctive effect. Effects include; oil paint, pencil sketch, pen and ink, comics watercolour and others. It is very similar in the range of effects it creates, to some of the styles found in other artistic effects emulation plug-ins. Having played with it, I can tell you that although it won't turn you into an artist, it is very good and the results are much more effective and configurable than several other plug-ins I've used. Alien skin have done their usual excellent job with this delightful tool, and I look forward to reviewing it for you in the next few days. Snap Art sells for US $149.00, however a discount is available for owners of other Alien Skin products. For more information please visit the Snap Art product page.
