  • Harrys Filters: Review

    Let me begin by saying I am impressed with this collection of freeware, that's right, freeware, filters. Unless you are into heavy duty web or design work, this collection would probably fill any need you might have, plus they are easy, adjustable and lots of fun. I have played around with them for a little over 4 months and have found them useful for background creation and compositing type effect stuff plus very stable, as in crash free. Downloading and installing were a snap---no small item in my book! Their creator offers a set called Plug-In Galaxy which is Not freeware and for the serious design person, this set would be the way to go. The things which most impressed me about these filters were the amazing amount of adjustment you can apply to them to alter the default settings and the speed with which they work. Very impressive. In fact for someone like me this is probably the only set of special effect type filters I would ever need...not want... but need. Check out the following link for download site.http://www.webattack.com/get/hfilters.shtml Tom

    Couldn't you find something a little cheaper? That's a pretty impressive filter package! I haven't really used it yet, but I did play around with it for a few minutes. Oh boy! More sliders and options to choose from. It sure looks like it would be an easy way to get effects for backgrounds, as well as other things. Thanks for passing that along Tom. For the price, you really can't go wrong to try it.

      Hey I have those. They are neat arn't they. There are several of those freeware plugins that are really pretty good. I downloaded so many Photoshop spit out my main filters to make room. I was going to go throug them and put in the ones I would use until I max the Photoshop filter limit but I haven't done that yet. Does 6 allow for more plugins than 5.5 does? I really should do that as I am overlooking a good resource.

        Dj, I'm not sure if PS 6 has more "room" or not. I finally had to go in and clean my plug-in folder out as well. Perhaps one of the plug-in manager programs might be a good idea. I am beginning to think seriously along those lines. Ed, I'll try harder!! Really!! Tom

          Playtime with your Program
          by thomasgeorge
          With all the plug-in applications out there it is sometimes easy to forget that the most powerful ones you can get, you already have--built in to your Image editing program. The attached examples were done in 20 minutes, start to finish using only PS 6 and its Dust/scratch filter,layering and layer...

          Genesis V2 Pro Plug-In review
          by thomasgeorge
          This plug-in from Future Fantastic is a difficult one to review. To begin with it is definately High end as in expensive. What it does is to produce Flares,Glows and other assorted effects and it does it very well. However, there are a few down points. The interface, while touted as being improved from...

          Andromedia Series 1 Plug in Photo Filters Review
          by thomasgeorge
          There really isnt too much I can say about this offering from Andromedia software. To be fair, the program didnt crash. But it really does not do much either--sort of an electronic boat anchor. The filters are, simply put, crude. There is nothing there which cannot be done better in an image editing...
