Panopticum Plugin Galaxy

Filters for Adobe Photoshop
We haven't covered nearly all of the filters in the Plugin Galaxy collection. Here's a quick look at what else is included:

Alpha Tool for manipulating the alpha channel;

Coolorize, which manipulates the colors of an image;

Cryptology, which creates noise effects and can be used to encrypt and decrypt an image with a 64bit key;

Edge Tool for creating edge variations;

Feedback, which creates radial feedback and vortex effects;

Fusion for creating metal, chrome and neon effects;

Grid, which creates grid effects, including embossed grids;

Instant Mirror, which creates mirror effects;

Noiseee for noise effects;

Pop Art for creating pop-art effects;

Rainbow, which creates rainbow gradients;

Star, which creates star and lens flare effects;

Sunshine for emulating sun or sunset effects;

Synthesizer, which creates synthetic patterns;

Zoom, which allows users to zoom in on selected areas of an image and place a colored border around the zoomed area in the form of a square, circle or triangle.

The bottom line
This is a handy set of tools for Photoshop at a pretty reasonable price ($49.95). As I say, I'd like to see a few small quirks cleared up in the Macintosh version, but, on the whole, the set is certainly worthy of a "buy" recommendation. It's available for Macintosh and Windows and works with Adobe Photoshop 5.0 and higher, including 6.0, which I used it in for this review. A demo is also available. For more information, visit
