Hello Folks!
I'm presently receiving many solicitations offering Photoshop plugins, like Alien Skin's Bookeh 2 (blur) or an Italian feature: Alce (dodge).
You Folk do think that they are really performant? Are they doing thinks definitely better than the 'simple' Photoshop?
Besides if you think that they are indispensables, which are the best ones, the 'must have'?
Thanks in advance.

Re: plugins

If you have the time AND the skill, you can do a huge amount with Photoshop that resembles what various plug-is offer. But in many cases you just can't, because the plug-in effects are just too unique.

Even if you had the skill you probably don't want to commit the necessary time, especially in deadline-driven situations where productivity and speed is more important.

See the URL in my sig for free dedicated info on Photoshop plug-ins that should help you learn about them quickly.
