Filter Forge 8.004 macOS
The final version of Filter Forge 8.0 is now available! It features independent main window tabs that allow you to apply different filters or filter settings and render all of them separately from each other, a new built-in backup tool, and other cool improvements. It also includes support for the latest OS versions and host applications including Photoshop CC 2019.
A visual node-based editor lets you create visual effects and procedural textures.
Online Filter Library
A free online repository of filters submitted by Filter Forge users. Contributors can earn a free copy of Filter Forge.
Most filters in Filter Forge support seamless tiling, even for non-square textures.
Bump and Normal Maps
Filter Forge can generate diffuse, bump, specular and normal maps – all are anti-aliased and most are seamlessly tiled.
As all filters are generated procedurally, any filter can be rendered in any resolution without losing a detail.
New Features Added in Filter Forge 8:
Filter Forge 8 adds tabs to the main window, similar to web browsers. You can load a separate filter and source image in each tab and render them simultaneously.
Image Metadata Preservation
Thanks to the rewritten image saving procedures, Filter Forge 8.0 will preserve all image metadata when applying an effect to your image: GPS tags, camera model, DPI, and other info.
Backup and Restore Your Filters and Settings
Filter Forge 8 adds a built-in tool to back up installed filters, presets, favorites and other settings to a single file, to be restored later onto another computer or operating system, or a newer Filter Forge version.
