    Wow, now that's an indepth review. You took alot of time to explain everything and show examples. I also think the way you added stars was a nice touch. Definately a top notch reivew and a very interesting product.

      A well written review!

      Hell, I was sold with the teaser you gave us earlier Now that I've read the review (which was quite detailed), I will no doubt purchase the software as well as "Plugin Galaxy", which has features that I've been looking for (and I'll save a few bucks purchasing the bundle).

      It seems there are a lot of plugins that do nothing more than occupy space. It is refreshing to see someone create software that is flexible, quick and reasonably priced.

        Thanks for this excellent review, Doug. I just downloaded the 1.01 demo and will give it a whirl (keeping in mind your helpful caveats about the limited functionality of the demo). I'd often like to do a bit more creative work on some clients' web sites but can't justify vast amounts of time doodling in Photoshop.

        Thanks again.

            Well, Doug, you get credit for posting the review anyway. I'm one of those eager people who never get past the lure of "View Here"!

            After a quick tour of the demo, I ordered the HyperTyle CD. Also have Katrin Eismann's book due to be delivered today and her video ("Creative Compositing", which I read about somewhere in this group)coming next week. The cash outlay made me swoon, but in the long run these tools will certainly boost my productivity — always a major factor for the self-employed.

              First, I want to thank Danny for his comprehensive review. I don't know how many times I passed by that HyperTyle link on the Plugin site without clicking on it, thinking it was simply a tile maker. But Danny's review sure caught my attention, so I'm doing a test drive now. And HyperTyle sure packs a lot of power. I'm sure most people are looking at what it can do with textures (which is a lot), but even with textures turned off it is a strong special effect engine, using only the Adjust menu and Surface menu. Combine this with the texture features (which can also be used as frames), and there is quite a lot of power in an unassuming interface.
