Filter Forge 3.0 – What's New

The long-awaited third version of Filter Forge is out! Explore the horizons of the new powerful Filter Forge with support for multiple source images, revamped user interface, improved preview interactivity, new amazing filters, and much more.

Support for Multiple Source Images

Support for Multiple Source Images

In Filter Forge 1.0 and 2.0, one could only use a single source image or a Photoshop layer at a time. Starting with version 3.0, Filter Forge allows you to use multiple source images simultaneously. This is implemented by allowing you to load images into Color Controls and the newly introduced Grayscale Controls via the filter interface.

Progressive Previews

Progressive Previews

The idea behind progressive previews is to give you a rough, low-resolution preview of the rendered image as fast as possible, then gradually refine it in subsequent rendering passes until the image reaches the final level of quality. By default, the first rendering pass of the progressive preview is up to 16 times faster than the original preview method!

More Preview Images

More Preview Images

If you are a longtime Filter Forge user, you're probably sick and tired of the default lifesaver image that Filter Forge uses to preview rendered results – and so are we! Filter Forge 3.0 comes with 6 new preview images so you can choose the one that you like best. Each of these images comes with an alpha channel allowing you to preview your filters on images with transparent areas.

“I'm thinking Filter Forge should come with a warning: 'This Product could be Habit Forming'.”

“Filter Forge is an incredibly powerful new Photoshop Plugin. It's simply amazing. It gives you the power to create your own filters (you must run them from inside Filter Forge though) without any programming knowledge at all.”
