Photoshop Plugins


gehört zwar nicht unbedingt zur erotischen Fotografie aber ist, denke ich auch ein bestandteil dessen was man aus jeweiligen Bildern machen kann.

Hierzu gibt es eine Masse an PS-Plugins die frei und kostenlos erhältlich sind.

Bin auf diese, leider in englisch geschrieben Linksammlung gestossen und war der Meinug dass das hier einige Interessieren könnte.

Viel Spass damit.



PhotoShop Plugins, Filters, Brushes, Actions & Gradients
It's amazing as to the amount of time and effort that people put into making plug-ins, filters, actions, brushes and such and then make them available to whomever wants them at no cost. All of the following are the "best of the best" and each one has received the highest rating from Adobe, and they are all free. I do not think that there are many items out there, that you have to pay for, that are better than the following...

A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for quickly removing black or white values and making the region transparent. There are 6 different options for you to choose from, depending on the type of image you are working on (colour photo, mono photo, lineart). It requires the use of "layers" so remember the effect must be applied to an image that is on a layer above the background in order for it to work.

Digital Film FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for high-contrast B&W effects. It will not just convert your images into the standard shades of grey, it will automatically higher the contrast and produce a more dramatic sense of lighting in your scene.

Digital Film FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for B&W grain effects. It produces results similar to using traditional "fast" B&W camera film, allowing more control than the standard "noise" filters included with most image-editors. Give your photos back some of that artistic texture which seems to be sadly missing these days! Ideal for both landscape scenes or portraits. For best results use with high-resolution images of at least 2 megapixels.

Digital Film FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for very high contrast effects. It bleaches out most of the mid-tone greys, leaving crisp dark blacks and bright clean whites. It will produce clear B&W images with limited tones, which are suitable for cheap reproduction via the office photocopier or when published in newsprint, as these methods normally loose image definition when trying to reproduce standard colour photographs. Although mainly designed for this "technical" purpose, you can also have fun by adding strong colour-casts within the plug-in!
Download (147.7kb):

Digital Film FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for adding a basic "night-vision" effect to your digital photographs and/or 2D and 3D computer-generated images. It first removes all colour from the picture and gives a very slight blur to indicate the film is trying hard to focus in a low-light situation. Then you can choose to add grain either keeping it B&W or mixing separate red, green and blue channels to vary the effect. You can also produce a strong overall colour cast using the RGB sliders provided. Works best with dark night-time photographs that have minimal areas of bright background elements in the scene.

Digital Film FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for creating a similar look when using traditional B&W infra-red film. It is not an exact match but will provide you with a quick and easy way to re-create the effect digitally using your standard colour photographs. The RGB sliders will also allow you to tint the overall image if you wish. For best results use this filter on landscape scenes. It is also quite effective on certain architectural elements too. Not really suitable for portrait subjects though.

Digital Lens FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for tinting the sky area of your photographs. Ideal if you need to change the "mood" of your scene, brighten-up a dull day or make a darker overcast sky for dramatic effect.

You can specify the colour of the tint via three RGB sliders plus you can adjust the brightness with the exposure setting.

Digital Lens FX : A single Photoshop-compatible plug-in filter for quickly turning your colour images into greyscale, but with the added option of using a coloured optical lens filter as you would in traditional B&W photography. The different colours will change the tonal range during the greyscale conversion : for example, a red filter will lighten the red, magenta and yellow areas plus darken the green, blue and cyan in the photo. There are 6 preset effects to choose from using a simple.

Simple action that creates a kaleidoscope effect. A simple action that flips and then rotates a segment of an image to create a kaleidoscope effect. More fun than it is useful, but I have used it to create logos and greeting card designs.

The zipped file contains an Action and four Photoshop files. The action will create four versions of the Kaleidoscope. Choose the version that you want (the higher the number the more segments in the design.) and start the action. A stop notice will ask you to open a specific Photoshop file. Once you have opened the correct file, the action will continue to play. It will stop to ask you to open your own image. At the next stop -- use the transform and move tools to scale, rotate and position the image inside the wedge mask. Try to find the most interesting area of your image. It is also interesting to run the action on the same image several times, using different sections of the image. Sometimes the results can be quite different! Click play to continue the action and the action will complete the design. The last stop allows you to choose whether or not to merge the layers. xxxxxx

Page Cleaner 2.0 is the easiest way to clean up your black and white scans! Simple and fast, it'll leave you white the cleanest scan possible while retaining all of the viewability of the original scan.

Once that's done, open up the image you'd like to clean and hit play.

Wo wir mal gerade bei PhotoShop sind

Vielleicht machen wir ja auch mal einen Tutorial-Thread auf ...

Erotische Fotografie leicht und verständlich ...
Ansätze gab es ja schon. Bilder mit Bewegung, das Richtige Licht mit 8 Watt ... hier und da auch die Erklärung wie man einige bunte Dinge in Schwarzweißbilden lässt oder reinzaubert ...

Und jetzt, das ich durch Zufall gefunden habe, wie es immer so ist.
Leider an Beipielen von Autos, aber Autos können ja auch die Fantasie beflügeln ...

Na hoffentlich löst sich dieser Link nicht in Luft auf?
Sonst müssen wir eine Ausnahmegenehmigung wie im Fun-Bereich erwirken. Gruß an die MODs.

Wünsch euch was. Und vielleicht startet ja mal jemand von den Künstlern hier einen Tutorail-Threat und die Amateure unter uns sagen, was sie gern wissen möchten ...

Vielleicht lernt auch der ein oder andere ,,Alleskönner,, doch noch was dazu

Sinnlichen Gruß, Folker *blume*
11. August 2006
Noch eins ...

Kann mir vielleicht jemand helfen und sagen wie man die PlugIns selbst machen kann?

Gibt es dafür ein richtiges SDK oder wenigstens einen Link, wo man mal nachlesen kann?

Ich meine, nur für die kleine Frage in noch tausend anderen Foren rumwuseln wäre jetzt auch etwas blöd.

Ich rede aber nicht von selbst erstellten Filtermasken, wo man seine Zahlen in die vorgegeben Felder eintragen kann.

Ich glaub nämlich nicht, dass das ausreicht für das, was ich vor habe *zwinker*

Sinnlichen Gruß, Folker *blume*

Wirklich toll diese liste, kompliment an euch, Paarstgt.
Da werd ich gleich mal welche ausprobieren.
Thanks!!! *zwinker*
