Alien Skin Software on Tuesday announced a Dec. 14 ship date for
Eye Candy 5: Nature, a collection of 10 plug-in filters compatible with Adobe Photoshop 7 and Photoshop Elements 2, Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 and Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004. It’s the second in a three-part upgrade to Alien Skin’s Eye Candy 4000, and it includes such new filters as Icicles, Rust, Ripples and Snow Drift, in addition to updated versions of the other six. Eye Candy 5 offers more than 200 preset effects, with the ability to create, save and share new ones, and other improvements over its predecessor include unlimited undo and redo, context-sensitive online help and more.
Pricing will be US$99 when Eye Candy 5: Nature is released; upgrades are $49. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.6, a 500MHz G3 processor and 256MB RAM. Alien Skin will ship the final Eye Candy upgrade, Impact, in 2005. It will include upgrades to the shadows, chrome, bevels and other effects currently found in Eye Candy 4000.
