Win a Free Copy of Filter Forge!

It’s day two of this site’s 1st Birthday Celebration and today we’re giving away another amazing Photoshop plug-in. If you’ve been following this site for a while you may remember that a while back we gave away a free copy of Filter Forge, an amazing Photoshop plug-in that gives you access to thousands of user-created plug-ins and even lets you create your own.

Today we’re giving away another copy of Filter Forge but this time the guys at Filter Forge were nice enough to donate a copy of Filter Forge Basic. With Filter Forge Basic, you can’t create filters but you will have access to their entire library of over 6,000 filters. This basically gives you an unlimited amount of possibilities with your designs.

To win a copy of Filter Forge all you have to do is leave a comment below, tell us what you would use this plug-in for, and then Tweet this page to your followers.

    If I owned Filter Forge, I’d be able to branch off into the bigger designs. By that, I mean that I’d be able to do large poster and billboard work, which has actually come up in previous discussions. I see filter forge being used for video as well. Using this program, and bringing the program into After Effects would be a match made in heaven. There is so much potential with this product, cool business cards and magazine designs are flashing through my mind’s eye. I really hope that I’m selected, the possibilities with this program are endless!

    I’d love to see how those filters will work when used as custom brushes in zbrush or used as a displacement map texture.

    If I won a copy of Filter Forge, it would allow me to expand my design repertoire to include more abstract art. It looks like a neat tool to play around with and I’m excited to see the possibilities.

    I used to use a lot of filters in my earlier artwork and this would be a great way to get back into it.

    Filter Forge would be a fun tool that can open up some more doors of my photography. I’ve been toying with textures and this could help that aspect of the work.

    Looove filter forge. I used the demo for a 3d project to get HD resolution tiling textures. Saved my hide. It’s kind of pricey IMHO, but i’d love to win a free copy. Thanks!

    I would use Filter Forge to bring about world peace, eliminate hunger and provide free health care for everyone on earth. And also to save endangered species like beauty contestants.

    I would use it for my illustrations, I am looking to use my photos of textures in combination with my illustrated line work to create childrens/early teen story books. I love to paint but find I am too much of a perfectionist for a brush, looks like Filter forge can take care of all my needs, by creating a wide variety of textures– perfect!
