PLUGIN's

I've been an active reader of this site since the beginning of the year. There have been many interesting posts, and I find, some very talented and knowledgeable individuals. For those who have a passion for retouching, photo art and photography, I have two questions:

1. What are your favorite plug-ins and why? (I need to know which one's are worth buying).

2. What other websites do you frequent other than retouch pro.

Again...thanks for those who share your experience...sky.

Some of my favorite plugins are Impressionist (free for now; Microsoft use to package it with Office 2000 /w Frontpage, but they no longer support it; man this gem is a must have. Steve {a.k.a., Trimoon} still hosts it on his site; get it while you can). Paint Engine (not the direct website link, but this site has cool presets) I like, but haven't really used that much of late; still a very cool filter to have (also free). Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast (not free, but well worth the money; have a try before you buy version) is one of my favorites; even works well in GIMP. Flaming Pear also has a lot of free filters too, so visiting their website should be on your to do list. I can go on and on, but the next set should be in your arsenal too. Xero's free filters are definitely a must have. EyeCandy too (version 3 is free).

Yes, RetouchPro has some competition. The site I frequent the most is DPReview's Retouch forum. I also visit Innographx and Fred Miranda's Photo Illustration and Digital Art forum (not so much now, but still have friends there).

Regarding Mr. Contrast, I'll butt in and say that I much prefer my own plugin from
http://photoshop.msk.ru/aspd/ (but yes, it isn't free either)

What as to Impressionist and Paint Engine - these are rare plugins that survived several machine changes and PS reinstalls here :-) I was in contact with Paint Engine developer since very first betas and although he seem to be out of business for at least 10 years now, his wonderful product is still quite useful to me.

Not free, but worth the money:
1. Noise Ninja (or other noise reduction plugin)
2. Intellihance Pro (Onone Software) photo correction (focus, dust, scratches, etc) with a GUI similar to Photosops "variations".
3. Genuine Fractals (onone Software) enlarge low res pics smoothly (mid res pics can often be enlarged up to 800% quite well)

Your filters are fantastic I. V.

I have your free version Xylegraph (LE version); been a little while since I last played with it. I did not know you were a member of RetouchPro. That's pretty cool.

this is a straight copy of my bookmarks for 'plugins'. i know there are some dupicates in here and if i see them i'll edit them out. and some of those probably arent strictly plugins. nonetheless, enjoy

My goodness and I thought my bookmark file was full. Great job Craig, and thanks for adding more to my already extensive list.
