I haven't seen or heard anything to the contrary, but this thread on the Vertus Community quotes Fluid Mask co-creator James Carr-Jones as saying they've no plans to extend the software outside Photoshop users.

Fluid Mask 2

Fluid mask version 2 is now out for Windows and Mac users

Main new features I think include 16 bit capability and a new "jigsaw" image approach, which is quite revolutionary and state-of-the-art.

I have seen many people looking for independent reviews, to which I would say this;

Unless you are a dyed in the wool user of old methods then F M is the future and the sooner you get into it (it will involve a learning curve) the better, especially students and trainees.

Remember though, F M was designed as a high end add on tool.

IF money is an issue and you cut out infrequently and have lots of time or your cut outs are simple ones against a distinct background then you should stick to Photoshop's inbuilt tools.

So the choice is simple - keep to Photoshop or add on F M, in my view all other masking add ons are now out of date regardless of price.

if in doubt try the fee trial download from the F M site (you may even win a free copy)

You can find Fluid Mask 2.0 at a discount here.

As Dm_Cher mentioned, ImageSkill offers another option (which I still need to add to my website! Their other product pages are linked from their logo here).
