AKVIS Chameleon is an efficient tool for photo collage creation. This ingenious software makes the process easy and entertaining. Without Chameleon, one had to thoroughly select an object before pasting it into a new background; with this software the tedious part of the work is eliminated. You can concentrate on the creative part and forget about complicated selection techniques.

You can use Chameleon in many ways: Create customized postcards for your loved ones; make a wedding album using all kinds of photos and backgrounds; correct closed eyes (by implanting open eyes from another photo of the series), change the appearance of a person, etc.

Designers will appreciate Chameleon as it allows them to combine images with entirely different color ranges, to create the effect of drawing on a texture surface (crumpled paper, wood, etc), and all that with only a mouse-click.

Chameleon has four modes of operation:

Montage. In this mode Chameleon combines images to create a seamless photo montage. It transfers selected objects to a new background and makes the irrelevant parts of the pasted fragment fade away. The object does not change its color range or opacity, but its edges are smoothed to adapt to the new environment. This mode is good to use for creating photo collages with people (pasting a person into a new background).

Chameleon. In this mode Chameleon adjusts the pasted fragment to the target image color range and smoothes the object's borders. This is similar to the way a real chameleon adapts to its surrounding environment.

Blend Mode. In this mode Chameleon not only smooths the borders of the pasted object and adjusts its color range, but it also makes the object semi-transparent, so that the texture and the relief of the primary image can be seen through. Use this mode if you want to dissolve the pasted image into the background.

Emersion Mode. In Emersion mode, like in Montage mode, Chameleon combines images to create a seamless photo montage. The difference between the two is that in Emersion Mode the pasted fragment does not overlay the background, but embeds into the background so that only certain parts of the fragment are visible. This mode allows making montages that contain difficult objects (trees, etc).

Chameleon is very easy to handle as it does not require the precise selection of objects.
