Product Showcase



Andrew's Plug-ins from Graphicxtras provide tons of special effects to your images and work with most Photoshop compatible image editors.

In all, there are 19 series of this plug-in available -- most series have multiple plug-in effects. In this ongoing preview series, I explored Series 01 earlier -- now we move to Series 02.

This page of preview images shows you the default effects as they are without any tweaking of the sliders. And as said in the alst preview page, I'm keeping the text narrative to a minimum -- let the pictures speak for themselves.

This original image was sourced from Indezine Photos.

As you can see, most of these effects work best when combined over separate layers with blending modes although you could also use one of these all in itself as well.
