Xenofex

Last in this hour, but far from least, is a very cool plug-in set from our friends at Alien Skin. Xenofex makes textures. Of course, that's sort of like saying that Beethoven wrote pretty tunes.

Xenofex features 16 terrific effects plug-ins. Among my favorites are Little Fluffy Clouds, which adds clouds all the way from snowflake-like wisps to a hurricane; Flag, which adds ripples to your selection; and Baked Earth (see Figure 19.12), which places your selection on a rough, cracked surface that could be either a terrazzo floor or sun-parched clay. Other effects include Puzzle, Shower Door, Stain—which creates the look of a coffee stain—and Stamper—which fills your selection with copies of any TIFF image.
