Akvis has updated Akvis ArtSuite, its collection of effects for decorating photos, to version.7.5. New patterns and textures have been added to the library.

Most of these are festive patterns for creating a delightful Christmas card or adding some holiday magic to a photo. The library has also been reorganized and is easier to use, according to the folks at Akvis.
