Blending modes are like additional filters added to the tools so adding millions and millions of new creative effects for your projects. The filters all come with modes that can be useful for digital photography such as borders as well as invert, solarization, posterization, saturation as well as tone settings. Use the output and effects modes to tweak an image in 1000s of ways, from the subtle to the extreme

You can still use the standard blending modes with the Photoshop plugin filters and opacity that are available to the app such as darken etc as well as fade the result via the fade command. So just go to the filters menu and the Andrew's category and select one of the 8BF filters and then run that effect with the required setting and then go to the edit menu and fade command and select a different blending mode such as darken or lighten or change the opacity to 50% and click OK. You can repeat this multiple times with multiple filters from the collection to create all kinds of amazing colorful effects. You can also use the duplicate layer command (if flattened image) and then set the blending mode for the layer as well as opacity and then apply the effect and the image is then blended with the original.

post processing gradients

All the tools include 18 post processing settings such as applying a randomized blend to the end result of the filter effect and includes billions of amazing combinations. The randomized colour blends effects in the Photoshop / psp plugins and blends can add subtle colour changes to any image or text or layer. The colour effect combinations can range to millions and millions of unique colour effects such as quadrant effects and also linear gradient effects, square themed gradient blends and many more. You can also use blending modes and the edit menu fade command to blend multiple applied gradients to create truly awesome color effects with any image. These color gradient effects are also wonderful when used with a selection to create a frame. Apply the rectangular selection tool across the image and leave some edge. Go to the select menu and inverse the selection. Apply the tool with one of the amazing gradients and the gradient will fill that 'frame' selection - so you have an instant frame from the effects. You can then manipulate that even further with even more effects as well as the tools that come in Photoshop and PSP etc

actions

Actions

effects modes

 

Effects modes to create amazing blurs etc

color modes

red and green and blue

colour factors with all the tools

The "blend" control randomizes the blend / output options so click the blend and the image will invert or a frame will appear or the red colour will become dominant

 

The "tweak" control included in all the Photoshop psp filters applies subtle variations of the current settings and will modify only some of the controls - useful if you are fairly close to a setting but just want to tryout certain close settings (good idea perhaps to save the settings before you click the extreme or colour etc as you will not be able to undo or return to the earlier settings

 

settings

Settings

All contain their own unique tools settings: some are much the same in many of the tools such as a factor control which controls the colour of the image as well as the mix tools which control the blend with the effect and the original source image.

 

The effects also include dropdown combo boxes to radically alter the functionality of the tool, settings sliders such as intensity, mixing of image and effect, blurring, quality of effect and more. Enter the settings via the interactive sliders or enter the strength of the effect in a standard text / edit field at the right side to the slider.

 

There are also checkboxes included in the Photoshop plugins such as inverse or link r-g-b etc which links the channel information to the red channel settings (userful for greyscale etc effects)

 

add bevels etc

 

Alpha channel manipulation

If you apply the Photoshop psp plugin filters on a layer, the alpha channel can also be modified by the effect as well as the image itself. There are many different layer / alpha channel modification settings such as adding the red channel of the effect to the alpha channel, or applying a blend to to the alpha channel, or inversing of the effect, edge settings and many more. You can also then use the result of any alpha channel with the layer effects / styles such as unique drop shadows or unique textures / bevels.

 

color changes

Foreground / background colour

Some of the functionality of the tools use the foreground and background colour stored in the toolbar of PS and PS Elements etc. You can use that to create millions of unique colour effects by simply changing the colours in the toolbar

 

gradients

Gradient plugins

Once you have unzipped the set, select all the 8BF files and place them in the required path for your host application. Any questions, please e-mail us

"In the growing market of filters Andrew's work shines above the mediocrity of mostly uninspired "effects". His work is not only inexhaustible in scope and variety it is original and fresh. Andrew's Filters, settings, do not just blur the distance between effects and art, his work is art. Welcome to the future." Dede Kafka
