What's new in Filter Forge

Version 8.0:

Note: Version 8 is a paid upgrade from version 7.

New:
  • Tabs - Filter Forge 8 adds tabs to the main window, similar to web browsers. You can load a separate filter and source image in each tab and render them simultaneously.
  • Image Metadata Preservation - Thanks to the rewritten image saving procedures, Filter Forge 8.0 will preserve all image metadata when applying an effect to your image: GPS tags, camera model, DPI, and other info.
  • Backup and Restore Your Filters and Settings - Filter Forge 8 adds a built-in tool to back up installed filters, presets, favorites and other settings to a single file, to be restored later onto another computer or operating system, or a newer Filter Forge version.

I recently purchased Filter Forge 3.0 along with the 4.0 upgrade to use as a plugin with Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended. This is a very powerful graphic effects program, the full power of which I have barely touched, being as I don't take the time to create my own filters. Thanks to the thousands of free filters which are regularly uploaded to the Filter Forge website -- which one can download into their own copy of Filter Forge -- one will never run out of new ways to enhance their images in Adobe Photoshop -- and in other compatible host programs -- with high-quality borders, textures and other amazing effects.

In PS CC 2014 the filters would not start properly. Neither the forum nor support were able to offer solutions while many more users reported a similar issue. Half a star was added because the standalone version worked, but I was after the plugin version. I suggest to wait until the manufacturer has announced a fix. A manual removal of the installation is also required as the installer does not come with an un-install option.
