Andrew Photoshop Plug-ins Series 13

Explore effects in Andrew's Plug-ins series 13 for Photoshop.

This is a preview of Series 13 of Andrew's Plug-ins from Graphicxtras -- for more previews, explore the links from the Andrew's Plugins index page.

Series 13 is Distortatron -- the plug-ins series generates distortion, paint, streaks, gradient and color effects.

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.

Original Picture

Figure 1: Distort - CrizCroz generates abstract distortion with paint effects.

Figure 2: Distort - GradientShift creates a unnatural gradient overlay with unusual pixel distortions.

Figure 3: Distort - GridSource generates variant distortions like ripples, scratches, etc.

Figure 4: Distort - Streaks creates streaked painting effect.

Figure 5: Gradient - Star applies variations of star gradient, use blending mode for great effect.

Figure 6: Lines - Metal applies a metallic pattern to the image.

Figure 7: Pattern - Dots generates dots/grid pattern, combine with blending mode for stunning effects.

Figure 8: Pattern - Fragments creates abstract patterns, to create beautiful effects, combine with blending modes.

Figure 9: Utility - Lighter lightens/darkens the image.

Figure 10: Utility - Sharper sharpens the image.

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.
