Alien Skin intros new Eye Candy plug-in filters
Alien Skin Software on Wednesday announced that Eye Candy 5: Nature, the second in a three-part upgrade for Eye Candy 4000, will ship next month. It's a set of 10 plug-in filters designed for use with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Jasc Paint Shop Pro and Macromedia Fireworks, with four new filters that generate translucent icicles, refractive ripples, rust and snow or frost. The Rust filter also adds moss and mold to images and text. Nature features presets for more than 200 effects, scriptable keyboard shortcuts and a settings management system for creating new presets.
Nature follows Eye Candy 5: Textures, which was released earlier this year, and precedes Eye Candy 5: Impact, which will ship in 2005. Impact will include a variety of graphic design effects, including chrome, bevels and shadows. Nature costs US$99 and requires Mac OS X v10.2.6, a G3 processor running at 500MHz and 256MB RAM. Adobe Photoshop 7 or Photoshop Elements 2, Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004 and Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 are supported.
