Effects from Fire and Ice to Rust and Squint
Alien Skin Software has released Eye Candy 5: Nature, a set of 10 plug-in filters for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Jasc Paint Shop Pro, and Macromedia Fireworks. The new filters are geared to simulate various phenomena, including:
-- Corona, which creates radiant solar flares and wispy auroras;
-- Drip, which melts images and renders oozing drops;
-- Fire, which creates an incendiary effect;
-- Icicles, which drips translucent icicles from any selection;
-- Ripples, which creates refractive ripples around a shape, as well as chaotic reflective waves;
-- Rust, which tarnishes and corrodes images and text with rust, moss and mold;
-- Smoke, which can simulate anything from voluminous clouds of smoke to murky haze;
-- Snow Drift, which piles snow on text and lightly dusts images with surface snow or frost;
-- Squint, which mimics poor or wet vision or camerawork; and
-- Water Drops, which can be used to splash images with a variety of drops, spurts, and spills.
Price: $99. (Alien Skin Software: www.alienskin.com)
