Q&A

Q1:Is there a way to design your own Photoshop filters?
A1: There's an old plug-in called Filter Factory, which supposedly lets you do so. I've found it on the Web, but haven't really tried to do anything with it. It's a fairly complicated procedure and the documentation is lacking. Probably the best (easiest) way to get custom effects is to use KPT Convolver, either alone or in combination with other filters.
Q2:How do I make stars appear on the KPT Convolver palette?
A2: Like the joke which asks "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"—Practice! The more new things you try with Convolver, the closer you get to adding more stars and more tools. I will tell you right now that the last star is the hardest. But when you're scrubbed and ready to operate, it will appear. (That's a BIG hint. But you need to get the other four first.)
