The DreamSuite Ultimate Gen 1 Upgrade software download from Auto FX Software is available for any previous version of the program. You must have one of these earlier versions in order to use it. DreamSuite Ultimate Gen 1 is a suite of visual effects that allows professionals, beginners, and everyone in between to create beautiful images and artwork. Say goodbye to difficult, complex processes and take advantage of a solution enabling quick, easy and effective image alterations. Twelve artistic effects have been added to expand and improve upon the contents of the predecessor program, DreamSuite Bundle. DreamSuite Ultimate includes all the content of this earlier software in addition to its own features, meaning you get upgraded versions of DreamSuite One, DreamSuite Two, and DreamSuite Gel, as well as a broad array of filters that can add subtle to striking effects to enhance and enrich your images. Enjoy over 45 artistic, graphic and photo effects.
Several presets for each of these past products have been added to this Ultimate version. Produce impressive results with all of your digital images, and see what magical expressions you can create with simple, easy-to-use tools applied to your digital canvas. Gain greater control over your transparent rasterized vector images, and apply more impressive stylized effects that can be achieved with layer styles in less time. Apply textures such as paper, canvas, and concrete with a single click.
DreamSuite Ultimate can work as a stand-alone application and as an Adobe Photoshop plug-in for Mac and Windows. The redesigned interface and overall intuitive nature of the program make it relatively simple to master its image enhancement techniques.
Artistic Effects (Added Since DreamSuite Bundle)
Modify your image to give it the appearance of a cartoon. This not only allows you to have fun with your photos and use your imagination, but also makes the process easier on you, since you don't have to worry about the many steps required to tweak an ordinary realistic image.
Transform your digital image into a charcoal rendering through a simple process. Substantially change the perception of your photos by switching to this medium, while controlling the amount of smear and adding or subtracting negative space as you see fit.
Reinvent your image to give it the look of a colored pencil drawing with soft color tones. Control color depth to add emphasis where desired.
Create a whimsical view of your images by rendering them in a comic-strip style format. Control the depth, color contrast, and color intensity of the image while altering it to resemble the old style and feel of the newspaper comic strip.
Tranform your photo into a classic black-and-white pen and ink rendering. Bring distinction to any image while preserving the focal point within that image.
Turn your work into one of the most basic forms of art: the black-and-white pencil drawing.
Give your image a softer black-and-white pencil sketch look with less definition and sharpness than the graphite pencil effect.
Oil - Impressionism
Lend your image an oil painting look that bears some of the same characteristics as the work of the old painting masters.
Oil - Traditional
Another oil painting effect, but more classical and true-to-life than the Impressionist option.
Use soft pastel-like colors to transform your image into a warm art form. Take a bright bold image and change it to a soft pastel crayon look, as if it were done by hand. Control the smear and blend with the touch of one slider.
Use fine lines of ink to turn your photos into drawings or sketches that appear to be hundreds of years old.
Make your picture look like a watercolor painting. You can control the density of color from very light to very heavy with just one effect slider.
Make any rasterized logo, type, or graphic effect look like something carved out of stone or hammered from metal. Add unique accents with various reflection maps and texture styles. Chisel gives you control over the depth, surface texture, and environments. Includes 11 different bevel styles generating a wide array of finished edges.
Affords the ability to brush on translucent depth and tinted colors over any graphic or text.
Realistic 3D effects that you can apply to almost any rasterized type and graphic. With the advanced beveling profiles, you've got the tools to create stunning images with thousands of possible looks. Benefit from control over the amount of depth, angle, and surface types, as well as refection of the bevels.
Create a more vibrant, soft, and gentle image that may be used in many different areas. Add translucent depth to designs and easily generate unique text and graphic effects that vividly explode off the screen. Take control over the depth and surface environment settings by adding bright colors, giving you total control over creative expression.
Allows you to combine multiple gel types within one rasterized text or graphic. Easily select from a wide array of brilliant colors while infusing these colors with translucent light, in order to create unique, eye-catching effects. Take control over the depth and surface environment settings for each gel effect used.
A more precise gel tool allowing you to brush on gel and control patterns and color depth.
A very vibrant effect enabling you to add creative glows and color blends to rasterized type or graphic effects, whether the project calls for subtle or dramatic flair. Enjoy precise control over the way the blends interact and how the glows mesh with the blended edges.
Apply translucent depth and tinted colors to any effectively masked area. Create reflective web buttons and refraction through glassy surfaces, displaying depth which is not easy to achieve when applying Layer Styles over rasterized text or graphics.
Apply metallic looks through the use of the brush for a bold expression. Draw with brushes that stream metal through the nozzle and are capable of creating both liquid and solid metal effects. Use the Add and Remove brushes to paint. The brushes can be confined within your masked artwork or used free-form anywhere on the image.
Lets you customize your desired metal look and add accents with a separate color and texture. Fill your type or graphic with a mixture of metals, whether you're adding accents or image-wide effects. Benefit from control over the depth, surface and environment settings for each metal used.

Gives you the ability to add bends, folds, and creases to your work for that perfect aged or worn look. Add depth and dimension to pictures while using the easy tools to produce the precise effect desired. Surface sheen, lighting, shading and shadows are all automatically applied when the image is creased.
Create a more subtle background or a more artistic focal point in images through the use of shapes. Apply blended shapes to capture a mood or a feeling while still retaining the focal point of the image. Shapes include squares, triangles, pentagons and hexagons.
Lets you create simulated tears, rips or holes in an image. Completely control the fiber length, size, color, image bleed, frequency, and other important aspects of this effect.

Go back in time and create that instamatic picture for your modern images. Make it a simple effect or add complexity and character by playing with color or adding a glossy shine. You can even dirty up the image if you want.

Take selected portions of images and press them inward to give them the appearance of being moved deeper into the shot. Produce desired wrinkles and depressions for a more three-dimensional feel with simple interactive commands.
Cut images into varying numbers of strips while adding shadows that can give images more depth. Set the strips to varying heights and add shading.

Brush on wrinkles and crinkles to make images look as though they were made from cloth. You can apply them in a way that actually enhances the focal point of the image.
The instant preset effects available for selection give you an easy starting point for your work. You can even design your own presets and and save them for later use. Click 'Select Preset' and you are there. The new roll-over before/after preset controls display examples of how the effect will look after it's applied. Customized User Created Presets can be limited to just one effect or involve several effects stacked together.
Layer Effects Palette
It's easy to combine effects together to create that perfect digital image. Simply check your layers on/off to see how the image appears with or without a particular effect in the stack. When you choose one particular layer effect to deactivate, the other layers will remain active, providing the enhancement and refinement desired.
