The software is Xenofex 2 by Alien Skin Software. Alien
Skin Software develops filters for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements,
Macromedia Fireworks, and Jasc Paint Shop Pro. Graphic designers and
digital photographers everywhere use our plugins for print, Web, and
photo restoration work. If you've worked with Paintshop programs you
know that plugins are analagous to drill extensions where you can
attach different device that perform differing functions to one main
unit specifically the drill. In a paint program, once you have the
image you want to enhance you apply the filter on it for the desired
correction or optical effect. Among the filters are the best cloud
generator ever

and a very adjustable lightning generator to give your
art a jolt of energy when needed.

The new Rip Open filter is really
interesting and is already being used in many ad campaigns because of
its startling fresh look.

plugins called Image Doctor in our last issue

"Makers of award-winning plug-in filters since 1994, Alien Skin
Software was the first company to create a drop shadow filter for use
in Photoshop. Our Black Box filter set, released in April of 1994,
quickly became an industry-standard collection. Version 3, released in
1997, saw the name changed to Eye Candy. Our next release in 1997, Eye
Candy for After Effects, marked Alien Skin Software's expansion into
the video compositing market. These filters for Adobe After Effects are
based on our popular Eye Candy 3 filter set. Released to rave reviews
in 1998, Xenofex introduced new natural phenomena filters. Eye Candy
4000 was released in 2000 and featured an all-new host-like interface
focused on usability. Released in the Spring of 2002, Splat! is a fun
and useful program for photo-enthusiasts and graphic designers alike.
Now, Image Doctor introduces Alien Skin Software’s award winning line
