Q&A

Q1:Is there a way to design my 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. If you're really good at programming, Adobe makes specifications available for software developers who want to create plug-ins for Adobe products. Visit http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/photoshop/sdk/topic_sdk.html for more information. You will need to supply your name and email address to access this site.
Q2:Do these weird filters, such as Fur and Squint and Water Drops, have any practical uses?
A2: Just today, I saw a sign that featured a frosty bottle of Coca-Cola on a red background. The entire image was made to look wet with Alien Skin's Water Drops filter. Anything's practical if you have enough imagination to make it work.
