Win 3 Licenses for Filter Forge 2.0

WebdesignerDepot Staff By WDD Staff  |  Oct. 20, 2010

As designers, we rely on Photoshop and its array of filters to create our effects most of the time.

There are many Photoshop filters out there that are usually suited for only a limited amount of effects, however, we invite you to take a look at the thousands of options available with Filter Forge.

Their software has over 7,500 filters that will suit the needs of any graphic artist, beginners and professionals alike, from scrapbookers to 3D modelers.

Their recently released version 2.0 has even more filters for advanced lighting options and shadows, that greatly improve the realism of your art works.

We’ve partnered with the fine folks at Filter Forge and one week from today, we’ll be giving away 3 licenses for Filter Forge Basic Edition (valued at $149 each) to some lucky WDD readers.

Read on for all the details and for instructions as to how to participate…

Here’s a bit more about Filter Forge:


fff2Filter Forge is a high-end Photoshop plugin that lets novice and expert users create a wide variety of realistic and abstract textures and effects.

It’s a must-have for any digital artist – 3D modeller, photographer, web designer and scrapbooker alike.

On the surface, Filter Forge is just a Photoshop plugin, a pack of filters that generate textures, create visual effects, enhance photos, process images. However, there are 3 things that make Filter Forge unique:

1. You can create your own filters. Filter Forge comes with a visual node-based editor allowing you to create your own filters – textures, effects, distortions, backgrounds, frames, you name it. All filters automatically support 16- and 32-bit modes in Photoshop, real-world HDRI lighting, bump and normal maps, huge resolutions, and most filters can be seamlessly tiled.

2. You get free access to 7628 user-created filters. Anyone can contribute their textures and effects to the online filter collection so it grows with every submitted filter. This means the more people use Filter Forge, the better it gets.

3. Contributors get Filter Forge for free. You submit filters, they get popular with the users, we send you a free copy of Filter Forge. Sounds simple but don’t expect a giveaway, you will have to earn it.
