GraphicDesign.com Picks the Top 10 Free Photoshop Plugins

  (September 06, 2012)

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 06, 2012

Fans of Photoshop have been flocking to GraphicDesign.com this week. Why? GraphicDesign.com, a leading source of news and information on the graphic design industry, has featured an article picking the top 10 free Photoshop plugins. And who doesn't love free?

Swiss graphic designer Mirko Humbert wrote the piece, which explains to novice Photoshop users, "Photoshop plugins are little (or big) add-ons that add image editing functionalities or allow you to perform tasks that are impossible or hard to perform with Photoshop." The poll article can be viewed HERE.

Humbert began by singling out Color MegaMix, which allows Photoshop users to modify the colors of their images quickly and easily. Humbert stressed that subtle color retouching can be achieved by using the plugin's eyedropper to pick up to eight source and target colors.


Another free Photoshop plugin highlighted is a nifty tool called Wire Worm. The program zaps telephone, electric, and cable wires, just to name a few, out of pictures. Humbert pointed out that Wire Worm can be quite a handy sidekick: "Doing it manually in Photoshop can be a tedious task, so this plugin can save you quite a bit of time."

For those with exposure woes plaguing their images, XPose is a free Photoshop plugin that allows users to "take photos that have poor exposition and take them to a new level. Obviously, it would be better to take good photos from the start, but it can be quite hard with cheaper point-and-shoot cameras." Humbert noted that the newest version of Photoshop includes this capability, making XPose perfect for those with older editions of the image editor.

Photoshoppers with extremely creative minds will get a kick out of Water Ripples, a free plugin that enables would-be Van Goghs to change the rendering and shapes of water ripples in images. Graphic designers could probably spend hours playing around with Water Ripples and another plugin Humbert identified, Face Control, which gives users the opportunity to morph and animate faces.

The core of GraphicDesign.com's mission is to engage its readership. As such, featured articles, including Humbert's look at the top Photoshop plugins, conclude with poll questions. This week's asks, "How many Photoshop plugins do you currently use," with choices of 0, 1-5, 6-10, and more than 10.

Also featured this week is an article discussing the top 10 factors to consider when choosing a graphic design school. Nicole Spiegel-Gotsch penned the piece, which solicits words of wisdom from GraphicDesign.com's acclaimed Advisory Board. Among the factors highlighted are job placement, the school's atmosphere, the curriculum, technologies used, and notable alumni. The insightful article can be viewed HERE.
