Filter Forge is a powerful graphic software allowing you to generate textures, enhance photos, and apply visual effects to your images. It can be used as a standalone program or as a plugin under Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Affinity, and other host applications.

There are 3 things that make Filter Forge unique:
  • You get free access to 12955 user-created filters. Anyone can contribute their textures and effects to the online filter collection so it grows with every submitted filter. This means the more people use the app, the better it gets.
  • You can create your own filters. It 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 most filters can be seamlessly tiled.
  • Contributors get Filter Forge for free.
