looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

I have been searching for days for a MAC version of either some kind of kaleidoscope filter or plugin,
OR
a fractal one.
(I did find a few mac fractal free share ware things. They all seem to want os9 which will run, but no clue how to get them to do anything.)

I did find a few good tutorials for kaleidoscope without any plugin but wow! TIME! I read about a few for windows, and wonder if ANYONE knows of a mac one???

Thanks.

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

I see your post is from years ago, maybe you know about GIMP now? It's a free app similar to photoshop and has a fractal filter. I'm looking for a kaleioscope plug in or something that will work on my MAC with Photoshop. If you found something would love to know about it.

Thanks,
B

See here for a free option. Notice this app taps into OSX's built-in Core Image capability. Other apps can do that as well, such as Pixelmator, GraphicConverter and such. Note these are not plug-ins; PS doesn't seem to support access to Core Image.

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

I knew about Gimp. Didn't know it had a fractal filter. I might have to download it and see.

Interesting stuff there plugsnpixels. I didn't see any fractal stuff.
Honestly though, I have an aging computer and in iffy copy of photoshop on it. For now I'm too afraid to add anything. It all works..... fingers crossed. Don't want to mess with it. (Need an upgrade bad.)
Been too busy making crafts lately. Graphics have been on hold for awhile.

bethbuddha was looking for a kaleidoscope feature and I got her sorted out.

For fractals, here is a Google search.

Re: looking for MAC photoshop plugins or filters

I've DONE google searches. Every site I find either requires me to know math. (Trust me, I'm very math challenged. No CLUE how to come up with complex math formulas.)

Or... they are in site things. Design it, sell it on their stuff.

I want to do it IN PHOTOSHOP on MY computer. But it seems that's not something photoshop can do without the math end of things.

So be it. I have other projects I can do.

As for kaleidoscope, it's a long process but photoshop can do that very well.
I have a whole page full of designs up for sale in my zazzle shop.
Right here.

There may not be a PS option but there are plenty of standalone apps:
