ABOUT THE IMAGE

Special Effects Plug-ins A

variety of special effects plug-ins were used to create these images.

Plug-ins are software modules that plug-in to Photoshop 7 and ImageReady 7 in such a way that they are as easily accessible as any of the standard Photoshop or ImageReady features. After plug-ins are installed, most of them show up at the bottom of the Filters menu. Unlike most of the plug-ins covered earlier in this chapter, many of these are specialty plug-ins that may not appeal to everyone. But, if you are in need of the effects they create, these plug-ins can be useful and they will certainly save you time. Figure 41.1 shows a few digital effects that were created with the plug-ins covered in this technique.

Most of these plug-ins are available as downloadable trial versions. You can either check on the vendor's Web page, or visit www.reallyusefulpage. com\50ps7\plug-ins.htm to get a clickable link to the download page and read any updates about these and many other plug-ins.
