    Go ahead and add nature effects to your photos — Mother Nature won’t mind.

    AKVIS, the folks behind the new Pastel app, has updated its NatureArt package with a host of new features and fixes. The app simulates natural phenomena in your digital photos, letting you do everything from changing seasons to brightening a dark landscape, or adding special effects like rain, fog, ice, fire, frost, lightning, rainbow and more to create a surreal scene. Each effect has presets for quick results.

    Version 6 includes new presets for the Sun and Frost effects. In addition to previously available in-app publishing services like Facebook, Twitter and others, Dropbox users can now share images directly from the program without loss of quality.

    Under-the-hood enhancements include improved performance for Windows 64-bit computers, plugin compatibility with Photoshop CC 2014, and support for additional Raw camera formats.

    Like all of AKVIS photo editing software, NatureArt is available as both a standalone application and a Photoshop plugin for Windows and Mac. The app starts at $72 or €55 and spans a range of pricing scales according to four separate license types. The comparison table gives detailed information about all features, versions, and prices. During the free, 10-day evaluation period you can try all effects and tools. No registration needed.

    The software runs on Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win 8 and on Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.9.
