Special effects software developer
Digital Anarchy has released Texture Anarchy for Photoshop. The software includes three plug-ins designed to create infinite, seamless textures and borders.
The software was created by developers who worked on MetaCreations’ KPT products, according to Digital Anarchy President and founder Jim Tierney. “The interface is definitely designed to encourage experimentation, but at the same time there’s the necessary control for professional designers that need to get jobs finished on a deadline,” he said.
Users can experiment with texture creation using four modifiable light sources, a gradient editor, and 38 different base noise types. The software generates textures mathematically using fractal algorithms, and can scale the texture up or down and apply it to any resolution. The software also ships with hundreds of presets to save you time.
The three plug-ins consist of Texture Anarchy Explorer, the texture creation tool; Edge Anarchy, which uses textures to create borders around the edges of images or graphics; and Tiling Texture Anarchy, which creates textures that can be tiled.
Texture Anarchy is available now for US$129 (it’s regularly $149). It’s compatible with Photoshop 3.0 or higher or Photoshop Elements, and it’s compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.
