Let's not get started on filters, just yet. In traditional photography, filters are handy gadgets you place in front of the camera's lens to produce a variety of effects. These can range from multiple images to split-field colorization (that is, blue on top and reddish on the bottom of an image, or vice versa) to glamour-oriented blur filters. Using third-party add-ons like those from Andromeda or Alien Skin, Photoshop can reproduce virtually any optical effect you can get with glass or gelatin filters, plus hundreds more that are impossible outside the digital realm. If you've used filters with your film camera, and perhaps purchased a set of the Cokin series, you'll love what Photoshop can do.
