35mm Frame

35mm Frame is useful for adding photo-realistic and artistic variations of 35mm slides around images. As the frames support transparency they can be applied and then layered into any scene or background you create. 35mm Frame is great for enhancing a design with a distinctive touch.

Chisel

With Chisel you can apply unique, never before seen depth bevels to your artwork. Make your artwork look as if it has been carved from stone or hammered from metal.

Chisel is a full featured effect that can be used everyday to enhance logos, type and graphics.

Crackle

Crackle is a great tool for adding interest to images and as a creative tool to be used with a composition for effect.

Crackle generates looks that simulate an aged painting that is cracked with flaking paint where it comes loose from the canvas. Crackle also creates looks that simulate cracks in the earth.

Crease

Crease gives designers a new way to add depth to their images. Crease allows you to bend, fold and crease your images to add depth and dimension. Surface sheen, lighting, shading and shadows are all automatically applied when the image is creased.

Easy to use tools let you bend and fold your images to photo-realistically reproduce a real photo bend. Exacting detail is achieved through a set of precise controls that are wrapped around the onscreen bezier paths.

   

Cubism

Cubism adds creative shapes to your images to give them an artistic look.

Cubism provides you with a unique way to make images artistic while still retaining the basic form and structure of the composition. It applies blended shapes that transparently extrude from the image. Shapes include Squares, Triangles, Pentagons and Hexagons.

  

Deckle

Deckle is great for tearing the edges of photos, creating rips along the side of an image or even tearing holes in a photo or paper.

Deckle gives you complete control over the fiber length, size, color, image bleed, frequency and other important aspects of this effect.

 

Dimension X

Dimension X adds realistic 3D depth effects to type and graphics while letting you work in an easy to use 2D styled creative environment.

Using advanced beveling profiles, reflective surface maps and surface textures in combination with multiple lighting sources and independently controlled shading points, Dimension X features unique bevel types and styles never before available to artists in any other software package.

  

Focus

Focus allows you to adjust the focus of a picture after it has already been taken. This effect is great for creating a soft focus, procedural focus, in motion focus and fading depth focal effects.

Apply Soft Focus, Directional, Rotational, Speckled, or Zoom Focus types. Easy to use on screen tools allow you to add focus ellipses brushes to control the location and settings of the focus looks.

  

Hot Stamp

HotStamp adds vibrant glows and blends to artwork and type.

Hot Stamp adds creative glows and color blends to type and artwork for some very unique looks. Great for adding extra attention to elements on a website.

  

Instamatic

Instamatic captures the moment and puts a great looking frame around your images.

Create compositions with multiple frames and make each frame slightly different. You can even age, add dirt to the surface or create shiny spots on the frames.

 

Liquid Metal

Liquid Metal applies metallic effects to your type and graphics. Liquid Metal allows you to draw with brushes that stream metal through their nozzles. Interact with the metal on screen as if it were made of mercury.

Liquify your logos and type and then drag the metals around on screen or add creative splats to the metal with the splat brush. This is a really fun effect that can produce some stunning results.

Metal Mixer

Metal Mixer works well with type and graphics such as logos, clip art and other solid shapes. Metal Mixer lets you mix metals and other surfaces together inside or along the edges of your artwork.

Metal Mixer is an interactive, hands on effect that allows you to draw metals with a brush. The metals mix together showing depth and pooling attributes. Mix silver and gold, blue silk and chrome or any number of surfaces together. Unlimited number of surfaces can be mixed together.

Photo Border

PhotoBorder adds creative border shapes around your images to give them that extra touch of class.

Border size and shape are independently controlled so you can add just the right amount for any resolution image. Add dirt and surface textures to your borders and unique shading too. This is a very useful effect that designers will find themselves working with time and time again.

Photo Depth

PhotoDepth allows you to add creative depth effects to your photos to give them added dimension.

Now you don't have to settle for flat and lifeless images or simple drop shadow effects. PhotoDepth lets you brush on depth effects, add frays along the sides of the image to make it appear to have been bent along the edges and raise up the image for depth effects.

  

Photo Tone

PhotoTone gives images a mottled sepia look like a traditional darkroom effect but with some great new enhancements and easy to use controls.

PhotoTone applies creative mottled glows, blurs, color blends, inner and outer halo areas to images to form a very romantic subject focused look. You can created ghosted blends and motion halos around your images for a slight jitter effect.

 

Putty

Putty allows you to reshape images as if they were made of putty. The creative possibilities this software gives designers is infinite. Adjust product shots to correct flaws, generate creative concepts with exaggerated photos, make photos demand attention with unique visual distortions.

Bezier path and brush based tools give you exacting control over the entire process. Images can be reshaped inside envelopes or made to configure to the shape of a bezier path.

Enlargements, reductions and rotation of selected areas are accomplished through brush based controls or trans-formation enabled envelopes and paths.

 

Ripple

Ripple lets you add realistic looking ripples and waves to your artwork.

Exacting controls allow you to change the wavelength and compression of the ripples along with the opacity and other vital attributes of the effect.

Tape

Tape allows you to draw different types of tape over your images or graphics.

Masking tape, transparent tape, sports tape and duct tape. Rip the edges of the tape with a freehand rip tool or use plain serrated edges. Control the age of the tape, add edge crumples, opacity and surface textures.
