In addition to using the filters provided by Photoshop, you can purchase all sorts of plug-in filters from other companies. In fact, Photoshop supports its own flourishing cottage industry of third-party solutions from wonderful companies such as Extensis, Alien Skin, Andromeda, and others.
The CD-ROM at the back of this book includes sample versions of some of my favorite filters. For complete information on the specific filters and the companies that provide them, read the appendix. Many of the filters are demo versions of the shipping products, which means that you can see what they do but you can't actually apply the effects or they work for only a limited period of time. I know, it's a drag, but these folks claim that they like to make money every once in a while, and I can't say that I blame them.
