Filter Forge an amazing plug-in for Photoshop

If this article is useful for you, please, consider to retribute. Thanks

Filter Forge is a Photoshop plug-in that allows you to build your own filters and seamless textures. Filter Forge works as Photoshop plug-in or as standalone version. At Filter Forge Inc site there is a Filter Library with more than 8800 free filters/textures for downloading into your collection. These filters/textures were created by Filter Forge Inc designers and Filter Forge users.

Being a Filter Forge user, I’ve created a lot of filters/textures and sent them to the library. Here are some samples:

To check the complete list of filters/textures that I’ve sent to the Filter Forge Library click here. The 8800 filters sent by me and other members into this Library will remain for free use for a while.

The creation process of a filter/texture within Filter Forge is very easy because it is based in a node-based editor system. See below the GUI from the Editor:

Besides de filters/textures I’ve already sent to the library as mentioned before, I also created some illustrations with Filter Forge and Photoshop. Click on the thumbnail to zoom it:
