    Filter Forge is new to me. They seem to have some amazing stuff though, especially if you need tileable textures.

    I like which is a vibrant cross between a metallic overlay and underwater through glass look.

    I like the Watercolor painting very much
    Look in the preview how a photo from a simple camera becomes a beautiful painting.

    I would love this one
    Because as far as I see this one is very usefull on these day at my tiny in-house
    vintage game-project.(details will be announce when its grow little bit… ;)
    Anyway I would like to tell why I love Filter Forge,
    It’s a definitely one of must-have tool in any Graphic Designer and/or VFX Designer tool belt.
    First of all, it’s give me a chance to create awesome maps in no-time.
    it’s also have nice library that I can select many user-created filters or maps which is most of the time
    that functions is save the day on dead-end projects…
    On the other hand If you are make game assets or 3D projects
    HDRI and High Resulation support best in this business.
    I would suggest Filter Forge for all Graphic Designers.

    The Gouache effect looks amazing to do some illustrations with pics. Great!

    I like (Dabbber). It looks like it would give a great watercolorish effect and be a lot of fun to play around with.

    I like these type of filter forges:

    It gives more details and accent to a photo. A grungy filter forge makes an ordinary photo turn into a one-of-a-kind sense of feel.I like adding grungy textures to some of my photo manipulations and website designs which gives a good depth of imagination.

    I Love this: (Color My Canvas)
    This filter will make our image look like it was printed on, or woven into a rough canvas fabric.Mm…cool.I love it. Gotta love to explore another filters. Filter Forge is awesome.

    I am currently digging deep into creating web themes and finding the following filters useful to make web background:
    Creature Skin:

    Why are they useful? First, the abundant variations of these filters alone make it easier for me to get my job done faster, no doubt about it. Second, as I always need high quality tools in my work life, I believe this one will exactly deliver the best result every designer can expect.

    Congratulation to the DesignModo team for bringing this up. Here is my retweet:

    I have looked at several of the filters and I would have to say that one of my favorites is Deep Sky ( I love space art and creating it.

    There are several filters in the group that would be very useful for creating game textures as well. I have been asked recently to help with this and Filter Forge would be a great asset to my arsenal in doing so.

    There are so many freakin awesome variations and effects how can we possibly choose a favorite?!?

    Well, I came across the cartographer one ( and because I’ve never seen an action or other filter do something like this before I decided to use it as my choice but honestly, there are just way to many fantastic, and very usable options!

    That’s an important distinction by the way, its great to have 40 billion variations, but if you can’t actually use them, then they’re just pretty and worthless. I got so many new ideas for designs just by browsing the freakin’ catalog of examples!!!

    You rock!
