Each of the tools includes 100 different output modes along with effect modes for blurring and smearing and paint like effects; the 8BF tools also include zillions of color options as well as gradient color overlays and randomization options to create a vast array of unique wow effects. 64bit & 32bit versions included. You can also combine the effects in Adobe ® Photoshop ® using scripting and PS actions. From the creator of the Andrew's 1000 filter series.


On buying the set, you receive all 180 filters as well as documentation and a serial number for any future updates.


Output settings (sort of blending modes internal to the tools) : They all include 100 output settings such as

invert the image

apply only to the red channel

wrap the color, limit the colors to the current foreground and BG color range

set to difference

darken only

different darken effects

Many types of tiling

zapped color effects

Edge effects

Posterization etc.


Blending modes are like additional filters added to the effect, adding millions and millions of new creative effects.


You can still use the standard blending modes and opacity that are available to the app such as darken etc as well as fade the result via the fade command.


Color post-processing using internal gradients : gradientsAll 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 color blends effects and blends can add subtle color changes to any image or text or layer.


The color effect combinations can range to millions and millions of unique color effects such as quadrant effects and also linear gradient effects, square themed gradient blends and many more


Actions : They can be saved as an action so you can use the actions in batch processing / scripting. You can combine many of the effects, combine them with native Adobe ® Photoshop ® effects and save as an action. Re-use the action in future image processing.


Effects modes to create amazing blurs etc : They all include 20 effects modes. If you ignore the effects modes then the result of the plugin will be just the listed effect such as blur or a noise effect applied to an image


Use in many different color modes : They can be used in RGB as well as CMYK and Grayscale and LAB as well as in 16 bits / channel (for many of the features). Change the image mode via the image command in Adobe ® Photoshop ® from RGB to CMYK and they will still appear enabled in the filters menu, apply your effects in CMYK. You can also go to the channels panel and apply the effects to individual channels as well as use them via the split channels and merge channel feature.


Channels : channelsYou can use the 8BF tools in individual channels in most color modes but you can also modify the end result on a channel by channel basis by using the red and green and blur sliders included in all the tools. You can make the entire image a whole lot redder or greener etc.


You can also randomize these by clicking the color setting button.


You can also apply a color factor in many tools so the reds will be set to 110% of the red channel etc as well as adding the current red channel plus a set of 10 etc up to the allowed maximum for the channel (there are also wrap features which means the channel wrapping can wrap from 255 (white) back to 0 (black).


All come with a selection of randomization controls such as the "Xtreme" which randomizes the most settings to the extreme, creating literally millions and millions of image effects.


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 color will become dominant


The "tweak" control 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 color etc as you will not be able to undo or return to the earlier 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 color 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 checkboxes such as inverse or link r-g-b etc which links the channel information to the red channel settings (userful for grayscale etc effects)


If you apply the effect 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.


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


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


All the effects include a large preview screen to show the effect. You can go in and out within limits. The preview in many cases can also be used as an interactive tool to change the settings of some fields, simply click the preview to select the color or change the intensity of an effect


You receive the 180 8BF set in a ZIP (whether the collection set or the individuals) You should be able to expand the set without any additional software. If you do need some software to unzip the file, the best tool is probably Smith Micro's (FREE) stuffit expander tool. That should resolve any issues but in most cases. 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


The effects work with the new smart objects feature. You can add them to all kinds of layers and shapes and then simply go over to the layers panel and de-select or remove them from the smart filters as well as change any of the settings and the end result of the effect. You can move them up and down the chain of effects. You can use them in the video timeline as well.


'Totally fascinated with the graphicxtras tools', 'Use them 90% of the time for mixing colors to achieve artistic effects' - Jeff Wietor (


"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
