  • Plug-In: Photoshop plugins 2015

    Are Photoshop plugins becoming redundant with Adobe's new policy of launching new features every couple of months?

    The plugin companies seem to be shrinking and disappearing, so it seems there is less of a market for them. But perhaps that's the marketplace overall, and not specifically about plugins?

    What are your goto plugins even taking into consideration Photoshop CC 2014 and all its new capabilities?

    Plug-ins forever! ;-)

    My opinion is, even if Adobe added more and more of this type of functionality, not everybody has Photoshop... And the Adobe version of any given effect is not necessarily as good as the third-party options which specialize in this sort of thing.

    The wise plug-in developers have also moved to the standalone model, where one doesn't even need an image host (when Adobe changed its licensing model, being tied in to and totally dependent on them was a bad place to be).

    While there is obviously some overlap among the plug-ins currently available, I find myself mostly using those from Topaz, onOne and Alien Skin. These companies offer both creative and corrective software, so your needs are met on both ends. I especially like adding artsy to my images via software since I don't have the patience or skills to paint. I like grunging them up too with textures.

      Hello Folks!
      I'm presently receiving many solicitations offering Photoshop plugins, like Alien Skin's Bookeh 2 (blur) or an Italian feature: Alce (dodge).
      You Folk do think that they are really performant? Are they doing thinks definitely better than the 'simple' Photoshop?

      I Do many Animated Sigs and Avatars, I just recently started doing a few Movie Sigs And have gotten pretty good with it, however it lags my Photoshop real bad when doing it.
      Is it possible that so many plugins are running and is it possible to disable some?
      Then if so how will I know...

      too many Plugins?
      by NadiaB
      I have quite a few Plugins installed but they are not all showing up when I try to apply a filter. Do I have too many? Is there a limit?
