Some Words About Us:
The company is headquartered in Perm, Russia.
In our small group of developers everyone is a specialist in his field. We know what a user of graphics software needs and we have our own idea about the way graphics programs should look like.
The AKVIS Team is enthusiastic about graphics and image processing issues. The company sponsors web-design and digital photography contests.
The company offers free licenses to non-profit organizations (heritage foundations and historical societies) involved in conservation and restoration of photographic archives having cultural value.
The company name AKVIS is connected with the name of the magic horse from a Russian fairy tale Sivka-Burka (if reading back-to-front: sivka - akvis). This magical creature was able to make his owner's dreams come true.
So do our tools - they help you make your ideas come true!
As you know, a horse is on the AKVIS logo, it is the company mascot, and horseshoes (a symbol of good luck) are used on the AKVIS products' icons.
