From Alien Skin Software:
Eye Candy 7 renders realistic effects that are difficult or impossible to achieve in Photoshop alone, such as Fire, Chrome, and the new Lightning. Effects like Animal Fur, Smoke, and Reptile Skin are rendered in exquisite detail down to individual hairs, turbulent wisps, and shiny scales.
Eye Candy helps you quickly explore and design looks. In Eye Candy 7, effects are chosen through easy to recognize icons rather than text menus. Presets are rapidly previewed by simply mousing over them. The theme is less clicking and more visual browsing.
The new grouping into one panel looks slick and operates the way it looks. Easy access to all the filters and they do their jobs quickly and well - and non-destructively.
My only quibble is that there are not enough effects in the suite. For one, where is the REALLy good telephone wire remover? Even the PS Content Aware patch does not do a good job on gradients or uniform backgrounds.
Eye Candy has grown over 19 years to handle a huge range of graphic design tasks, from subtle extruded edges to glitzy chrome. There are 32 effect categories, over 1000 presets, and controls to let you create an unlimited number of your own styles.
