Filter Forge has announced three new versions of its filter plug-in for Adobe Photoshop.
The Basic edition ($99) buys you unlimited access to their Filter Library, a burgeoning online archive that now contains more than 2,000 user-created filters.
$199 gets you the Standard edition and gives you tools that enable photographers and graphic artists to create their own filters including effects, textures, distortions, patterns, backgrounds and frames.
The Professional edition ($299) is for the imaging professional working in high-end 3D-content creation, architectural visualization and next-generation game development. The Pro edition offers high-precision imagery, ultra-large bitmaps up to 65000×65000 pixels, bump, diffuse and normal maps, and support for an unlimited number of CPU cores allowing the artists to squeeze the maximum out of the upcoming quad-core processors.
