    No, not the 8BF filter effects. Only the basic IV effects can be used in a selection - color adjustments and the Effects Browser stuff.

    Not very recent, but some nice filters at PunkinHaid's pages
    More graphic stuff there, like tutorials, PSP tubes and fonts.

    Hi Willgoss
    My reading of the Topaz website is
    "What programs are Topaz Adjust compatible with?
    Topaz Adjust does NOT work with:
    Fireworks, ImageN , The GIMP, IrfanView
    Topaz Adjust is compatible with
    Photoshop CS and above, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro

    Hope that helps, Al

    Well, Irfanview is now compatible with Topaz Adjust..this is a great plugin for simple processing as the many enhancements....currently the new version 2.4 is on sale (through September) for $39 which also includes their new noise filter coming this month.

    I recommend this....along with Filters Unlimited I use both on a lot of my pictures....

    Default Free ImageSkill 8bf plugin

    Magic Enhancer Lite: http://www.imageskill.com/magicenhan...cenhancer.html

    You can essentially improve your photos adjusting its lightness, contrast and color balance. Magic Enhancer is perfect for enhancement image and photo with lack of lightness or uneven illumination, silhouetted images on dark background. Convenient color temperature control allows fixing color balance defects easily.

    Outliner: http://www.imageskill.com/outliner/outliner.html

    It gives a user the easiest way to get image contouring with desired quality. This plug-in just picks out various edges making them more expressive. The user can easily manage range of edge appearance in the processed image getting fantastic artistic effects.

    Thanks, Dmitry.
    To me, especially the outliner looks quite promising.

    update:

    i downlaoded the whole plugin-package (which is available at irfanview.com) as a zip-file. Then i installed it. Well als went fine..

    - installed all the stuff - well i guess that i had success -

    now i can see in the pull-down-menu the option


    - effects ->

    Adobe 8bf filters

    Well - but i was adviced to install the GML Matting filters: I grabbed them and installed them
    http://research.graphicon.ru/image-p...l-matting.html

    installed the whole stuff

    but if i want to activate the GML Matting-Filter i get no restults. i open an image - then i choose effects in the image-menu. i take the ADOBE 8bf filters: but the only options i have are the following filters


    1. PopArt
    2. Harrys Filter 3.0


    what should i do now - i have no glue.. !?


    look forward to hear from you
    many thanks in advance

    joo

    Hi Sam_Zen
    I tried to get the Blur filter from that punkinstuff site, but the link was to a filter called Smooth.8bf which does not seem to be recognized by either Adobe or Filter factory. Any thoughts? I really wanted to know if it was worth persevering with.
    I needed a blur effect because the one included in Irfanview is so useless IMO. The gradient blur that Matera recommends (pppgradblur.8bf) is very good for much of what I need but I was looking for a really easy to use one (like the one in Faststone Image Viewer) that I could teach others to use.

    Maybe you should start to install them now.
