Working with Photoshop is always a pleasure but some projects may require many working hours and the effects involved may be hard to apply. Did you ever think at how cool will be to have all the elements from effects to patterns in one place and just to select and apply them whenever you need? I`m sure some of the hard working hours will be reduced. There is a solution and is called Filter Forge – Photoshop Plugin.So, why not to make your life easier?

Photoshop plugins are add-on programs aimed at providing additional image effects or performing tasks that are impossible or hard to fulfill using Adobe Photoshop alone. Plugins can be opened from within Photoshop and several other image editing programs and act like mini-editors that modify the image.

What is Filter Forge?

Filter Forge is a high-end Photoshop plugin that lets novice and expert users create a wide variety of realistic and abstract textures and effects. It’s a must-have for any digital artist – 3D modeller, photographer, web designer and scrapbooker alike. Just a “Photoshop Plugin” is a too narrow notion for Filter Forge because it can work under other host applications too, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, Ulead PhotoImpact and more and also, it can be used as a standalone program. So, you can use it anytime and anywhere, regardless of other graphic editors you’re using.

A ready-to-use and effective solution is always welcome and inside the library you have what to choose from.You can take instant advantage of over 7500+ free community-created filters in the online filter library, or create your own filters in the visual filter editor by assembling them from components such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, noises, distortions, or blends – without writing a single line of code.Why not have all of them in one place? Sure, how many effects can you apply and how many of them are exactly what you need? Well, in over more than 3700 effects, I`m sure you`ll find what you need.

The Filter Forge network is the best way to get used with the tool.

Personally I think that Filter Forge is worth trying.
