    Ok, so what can this program do? You got a nice, long-winded text review above. So, let's see some pictures!

    Here's an original of mine I'll use for this to start with: [ATTACH]3[/ATTACH]
    I took this years ago and never did anything with it. Then, a year or so ago, I found the old negatives, scanned them into the computer and touched things up a bit. This is one of the pictures I use when I'm testing filter making.

    Here's an image done up with a filter I made. The filter name is 'Fall Colors'. It was made based using one of Danny Raphael's images posted in the art forum, and that's where I got the idea for the filter name: [ATTACH]4[/ATTACH]

    And, here's another using a different filter. This is also a filter I made. It's called 'Lab Experiment' and is based on L.a.b. components within FF: [ATTACH]5[/ATTACH]

    The number and type of filters one can make is nearly infinite. And add one to infinite to get the number of possible effects one can apply to another image.

    Brief Filter Forge Review
    by Craig Walters

    The biggest draw of this program is that you don't have to know how to code. It's visual and comes in two parts, the Graphical User Interface (or GUI) and...

    TIP: no filter surprises
    by Doug Nelson
    When using the 'preview' function in many filters (especially USM) the preview can differ from the final result. Try opening another view of the document and setting it to 'actual pixels' while using the filter. Frequently having one set to view the entire image and another zoomed in can show different...

    Filter Forge becomes less expensive
    by Andrew B.
    Filter Forge has added two less-expensive versions of their software.

    Basic edition costs $99 and allows full use of all filters in the library. As I am typing this there are 2265 filters in the library, and the number is always growing.

    Wind Filter
    by Paris

    Is there a way to control Photoshop's Wind Filter, other than the standard presets?

    At the moment if I want wind on anything other than a horizontal axis I have to rotate the image, apply wind, rotate again, which tends to be more destructive and less predictable than...

    Thought I'd drop this picture here to show about how things can happen.

    When I started to retouch this picture it was never meant to go through the filter. But after spending some hours here and there it showed so many problems it developed to be so "artificial" I didn't want...
