Summary

In this hour, we checked out some of the cool third-party filters you can use with Photoshop. The most versatile and complete package is MetaCreations Kai's Power Tools (KPT 5.0), although it's probably not the easiest to use. Alien Skin's Eye Candy filter set includes a great many really odd filters, such as Fur and Fire, as well as very simple-to-apply drop shadow and glow filters. Extensis PhotoTools is another wickedly neat set of plug-ins. They're a little less weird than the others and much more versatile. I strongly recommend PhotoTools and PhotoGraphics. Either Intellihance or Test Strip will save you time compensating for bad scans or lousy photography. Finally, Xenofex gives you the power to add textures, ripples, and electrifying effects to your art.
