Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: TexturesTexture generation plugins for Adobe Photoshop
Eye Candy 5: Textures includes 10 such texture generators, each one covering a different texture category. Unlike other Eye Candy filters, the texture generators don't really fall into the category of image effects; they're designed primarily to generate textures (seamless or otherwise) for use in the design process as backgrounds, textures for 3D objects, etc.
Interface and workflow
Now, the original Eye Candy 4000 collection was the first to adopt Alien Skin's now-ubiquitous plugin interface, so, if you're familiar with that collection, you won't see too many differences here. There are some refinements in terms of the organization of the parameters, especially the presets, as well as some updated parameter controls. But the interface will be familiar enough to those of you who've used Alien Skin plugins within the last few years.
Above you see the interface shared by all of the filters in the collection, which includes a very large preview window, navigation tools and presets. It also includes effects settings in several categories. Most include a "Basic" category, where the main settings of the filter are adjusted.
They also include some filter-specific settings, such as distortion, knots, grain, etc.
