  • Andromedia Series 1 Plug in Photo Filters Review

    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 program and one, Halo, is, well, do this.... using the circular marquee tool, draw a circle on a photo. lighten the selection with curves or levels. Presto--Halo. With that, which really sums up the power and usefulness of this whole set of filters, I will steal away to lick my wounds once again. For $80+ I would NOT adivse you buy this turkey. In fact, I would advise you to be very wary of any offering from this company. Their ads are misleading and this is the second piece of software, and the last, I have purchased from them which turned out to be simply useless. Tom

    Thanks again Tom. I heard of the Andromeda plug ins but never checked them out. Guess I won't bother. Most of the plugins out there aren't really as useful as they are glamorous especially in the restoration feild. I think they are more geared toward web graphics and digital art.

      Thanks for you information on various software items. This is proving valuable for many of us.

        Dj, Very true about what the plug ins are geared to. Problem is that there are a whole lot of them that are not even useful for graphics work as with a little imagination and rudimental skills using whatever program you prefer, it is possible to actually do a better job than with the plug-in. There are exceptions, but they seem to be few in actual number. Tom

          You are right Tom, which makes what you are doing all the more valuable to the rest of us. I just added a full version trial of Ulead Art Textures plugins. Maybe I will join the effort and give a review on that one.

            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...

            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...

            AUTO EYE Plug-in Review
            by thomasgeorge
            What drew me to this plug-in (Auto-Eye by Auto FX) was the reported ability of it improve the quality of scanned images, and it does do that---but so will any image editing program worthy of the name. This program will function as both a stand alone and plug-in, which is nice, It seems to me to be very...

            by thomasgeorge
            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...
