NOTE: FILTER FORGE ADVERTISES ITSELF AS A PHOTOSHOP PLUGIN. THAT’S TRUE, BUT IT WORKS AS A STAND ALONE PROGRAM AS WELL. EVERYTHING I’VE DONE ON THIS SITE USES IT AS STANDALONE. I DON’T OWN PHOTOSHOP, I USE GIMP.
On the Filter Forge page on this blog, I showed how access to Filter Forge’s 8,600 filters can get you incredible textures for 3D projects. In a later blog comment, I showed how one of the filters can turn an image into a watercolor. Today, I’ve used a Filter Forge filter to give an image for my next Nursoda tale a dreamy, magical border. This is one of about 7 borders available with that filter.
Now, Filter Forge isn’t free, but right now the basic version sells for $59, and gives you access to all 8,606 filters they have online for download into the standalone program.
