Product Showcase

This is a preview of Series 06 of Andrew's Plug-ins from Graphicxtras -- for more previews, explore the links from the Andrew's Plugins index page.

Series 06 is called CutoutLantern and has some great effects like cutouts, lines, glow etc.

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

This original image was sourced from Indezine Photos.

Threshold - BasicBW
Figure 6: Threshold - BasicBW applies a basic black and white cutoff.

Figure 7: Threshold - ColorPhase generates a smeary cutout with a very unnatural glow.

Threshold - ColorLite
Figure 8: Threshold - ColorLite applies a colored grain effect.

Threshold - CuttingThrough
Figure 9: Threshold - CuttingThrough generates a grain effect that is slightly smudged and smeared.

Figure 10: Threshold - DarkDays gives a dark smeary effect.

Threshold - DarkDrift
Figure 11: Threshold - DarkDrift applies an abstract grained effect.

Threshold - DarkGloomy
Figure 12: Threshold - DarkGloomy generates dark, colored patchy results.

Threshold - NewsPaper
Figure 13: Threshold - NewsPaper -- emulates a newspaper-like, faded-smeary effect.

Threshold - RandomChannels
Figure 14: Threshold - RandomChannels generates dark-scratched, grainy effects.

Threshold - RGBSmear

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.
