Kai's Power Tools

Kai Krause is a legend in the field of computer graphics. He's the guiding genius behind Kai's Power Tools, Bryce, Convolver, Vector Effects, Final Effects, Goo, Soap, and probably many more goodies yet to be announced. The current edition is KPT 6, distributed by Corel Corp. KPT 6 has 10 new filters, most of which are potentially useful, unlike some of Kai's earlier and stranger creations. (Sadly, earlier toolsets might not be available much longer. When stocks of KPT 5 are sold out, there's no guarantee that Corel will reissue it, and KPT 3 and Convolver are long gone.)

The interfaces are designed to be as intuitive and as interesting as possible (see Figure 19.6). There are excellent help screens available within each filter (look for a question mark and click it). The goal of these filters, besides allowing you to do interesting things to your photos, is to change your way of working with the computer. By the way, you can find KPT 6 in mail-order catalogs or on the shelves of your local software store for about $129.
