The Plugin Site has released Plugin Galaxy v1.50. The new version of this collection of Photoshop-compatible plugs adds a new plugin and 18 new filter effects.
Plugin Galaxy is compatible with Mac OS X and “Classic” Mac OS as well. It includes 21 different Photoshop-compatible plugins containing more than 150 image effects in all. It also works with other applications that support the Photoshop plugin specification, like Photo-Paint, Canvas, Fireworks, Illustrator and Photoline.
The new Page Curl plugin provides the ability to generate page curl effects in 12 different directions and page rolls in 4 directions. You can colorize the page cur, make it transparent, position it on the image and more. The new Star Field effect can place up to several hundred stars of various shapes and colors all over an image. Other new effects added with this release include Rippled Glass, Diffuse, Cave Edge, Jungle Edge, Curved Edge and much more.
The Plugin Site has also updated older effects with improvements — Bluuur and Feedback gain rendering speed, for example, while Edge Tool can now let users position the edge effect anywhere on screen. There’s much more, too.
Plugin Galaxy v1.50 is a free update for registered users. The software costs US$49.95 and can be purchased from the Web site. The Plugin Site also offers Plugin Galaxy for AE, a version designed to run in After Effects and AE-compatible video applications.
