  • Playtime with your Program

    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 masks, blending modes, lens flare filter and hi-pass sharpening. Does this mean no more Plug in reviews? You will not be that lucky. More are on the way, but dont overlook the power of what you have--it will suprise you. Tom

    Well put Tom. Liked your little experiments as well. I have been going on web searches for those little freebee plugins (too cheap to buy them) I have collected many of them and I love testing them but I realize I play with them but for the basic photo applications I still go back the PS standards. Most of the time I don't even remember they are there and what they do because I have amassed so many. Just got a whole bunch of neat ones I haven't even unzipped yet. I am a good candidate for that Plugin Commander. There is also another one that is supposed to be real good as well called Plugin Manager 2. They sure are fun to collect and play with but as a "Must Have" I think Photoshop does pretty well on it's own.

      You mean it's not automated? Does it come with a remote? That's a pretty impressive image, and it didn't mean that you had to take the chance of getting nearly nothing for your money (which always seems to be pretty inticing to you) I guess just because you have to pay extra for it doesn't always mean it's better. Just costs more.

        Ed, If I dont get swindled at least once a month, I begin feeling neglected and down cast. Luckly, there is alot of software out there designed just to keep me from loosing my non-profit status and from experiencing the above negative feelings. Tom

          Yeah, I have the feeling that *YOU* are the reason they're out there. Word gets around fast!

            Harrys Filters: Review
            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...

            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...

            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...

            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 Varifocus Plug-in
            by thomasgeorge
            I had wondered for some time about this plug-in and after trying a demo with only so-so results and reading what I could find, I decided to buy it as, I reasoned, Demos usually leave out the really neat stuff. In this case they didnt. Reading the Ads one would be led to believe that this program could...
