Continuing its series of free Photoshop plugins, Filter Forge, Inc. today released Filter Forge Freepack 3 - Frames, and announced a 20% discount for its flagship product, Filter Forge. The theme of the third Filter Forge freepack is frames -- the plugin comprises seven effect filters, each capable of framing any photo in a creative way. For example, Painting Frame generates realistic wooden frames with paint flaking off; Halftone Frame will frame an image with a pattern of dots of varying size; Simple Frame gives photos a classic elegant feel; Grunge Frame makes a photo look ragged and edgy; and Film Frame produces a black film-like vignette. Over the course of the year 2008, Filter Forge, Inc. plans to release four more Filter Forge freepacks, each centered around a different theme. The freepacks are based on the technology used in the company's flagship product, Filter Forge, an innovative Photoshop plugin allowing users to create their own filters in a visual editor. All Filter Forge freepacks are available for download at the company website: www.filterforge.com/download/ . Registration is not required. The plugins currently work under Windows only, the OS X version for both Intel and PowerPC processors is in development.
