Filter Forge: A Powerful Photoshop Filter Program

On the surface, Filter Forge is just a Photoshop plugin, a pack of
filters that generate textures, create visual effects, enhance photos,
process images. However, there are 3 things that make Filter Forge

1. You can create your own filters.
Filter Forge comes with a visual node-based editor allowing you to
create your own filters – textures, effects, distortions, backgrounds,
frames, you name it. All filters automatically support 16- and 32-bit
modes in Photoshop, real-world HDRI lighting, bump and normal maps,
huge resolutions and seamless tiling.

2. Anyone can submit filters to our online Filter Library
where other users can download them – for free. This means that the
more people use Filter Forge, the better it gets. Currently, the
library contains 2821 user-created filters.

3. Contributors get Filter Forge for free.
You submit filters, they get popular with the users, we send you a free
copy of Filter Forge. Sounds simple but don’t expect a giveaway, you
will have to earn it.

The Life and Work of William Addison Dwiggins

Linotyped published “The Life and Work of William Addison Dwiggins” from their Linotype Matrix magazine. I can eat this stuff up all day long. I haven’t yet used any of his fonts for any work but I’ve been eyeing New Caledonia for some time. Caravan also looks like it may come into use soon.
