A plugin for Adobe Photoshop that allows you to build your own filters.
Filter Forge is a versatile Photoshop plugin which lets both novice and expert users create a wide variety of realistic and abstract textures and effects. Users can take instant advantage of over 10052 free community-created filters in the online filter library, or create their own filters in the visual filter editor by assembling them from components such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, noises, distortions, or blends – without writing a single line of code.
A visual node-based editor lets you create visual effects and procedural textures.
A free online repository of filters submitted by Filter Forge users. Contributors can earn a free copy of Filter Forge.
Most filters in Filter Forge support seamless tiling, even for non-square textures.
Filter Forge can generate diffuse, bump, specular and normal maps – all are anti-aliased and most are seamlessly tiled.
As all filters are generated procedurally, any filter can be rendered in any resolution without losing a detail.
