Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

sigh, I looked at about six of the top rated ones on your list.
ALL require an intel mac.

Too old too old..... I'm on a geriatric G5 tower.


Oh well. Maybe some day,

Shoot, I've even begun seeing Lion-only apps!

And even the first Intels are from what, 2005/6? If by any means you can move along, it would be great!

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

Yea well.... I'd LOVE to "move along." Got a son in college and a bunch of unexpected medical bills right before he went in.
New computers are not on my radar right now.


Besides..... it's a mac. It just keeps working.

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

True, and I hear you. However, if you really needed a newer Mac to run the latest software (including Windows on occasion), you can probably find a used Intel Mac for a decent price. Plus, your son probably qualifies for educational discounts on new items (not a huge amount, but some).

While the older Macs of course still run, they are being left in the dust by progress in operating systems, software, security, parts, etc. I manage several Mac labs in higher ed and have seen everything since the beige PowerMac 8500s come and go. We currently use 27" i5 iMacs, a generation back now. Even the previous 20" Core 2 Duo iMacs are feeling slow...

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

Slow is ok. I'm getting slower all the time. (grrrrr.)
Macs just keep on working. A PC is pretty much crap after only 3 years. I shipped my old imac, (my first ever, G3 bluberry thing.) to a friend in CA and he is still using it. This after the PO klutzes DROPPED the box and busted some of the plastic casing. (they paid for that.) And yet it still works.  Love um macks.

Even cheap is no good if you don't have it. Last mac I got was a brand new ibook for my son. Now he wants an ipad. He's in college so he needs this more than me. As long as mine keeps on ticking away, (it can still run photoshop, freehand, yes I still use that. Two browsers, text editors, and do it all at the same time.)
Why replace it?
Sure I'm limited now with new stuff not working. So do I need new stuff that bad?
Not really.

If you're good, you're good! No need to upgrade. But I assume you don't have iDevices you're trying to sync... And no security updates are available for older OS's either, which is something to consider since you are online.

The iPad is perfect for students, so hopefully he can get one.

Nope. No idevices. Only owned a cell phone for about a year. And it's a stupid phone not smart. (lol. Remember making actual calls on a phone? That's all I do.)

Not worried about security much either. To date, anything that can attack a mac has been pretty tame. Easy to avoid too.

Na, my old puter still putts along.

(pats the tower.... good mac.)

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

filter forge has a built in kaleidoscope component. components are used to build the filters. i've made several filters that employ that component and others have as well. so, when you say kaleidoscope there can be a whole range of effects covered there. take a look at filter forge at http://www.filterforge.com . and look at some of the filters in the library there.

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

Good point Craig. I've made some attempt to categorize FF's filters, but as you said, there's a whole lot of them... ;-)
