‘Eye Candy 5: Impact’ is a collection of 10 filters from Alien Skin compatible with Adobe Photoshop and other image-editing programs. The set consists of three new filters: Brushed Metal, Backlight and Extrude, and seven favourites that have been rewritten. Of these, gel, chrome and liquid metal effects now include reflections, while surface texture controls and preset bevel shapes are included in the embossing effects. Brushed Metal replicates textured metal surfaces; light beam and spotlight effects are produced from Backlight; while Extrude gives 2D objects a 3D effect. Eye Candy 5: Impact is the third upgrade to Eye Candy 4000 and is compatible with a range of software including Photoshop 7 (or later), Photoshop Elements 2 (or later) and Corel Paint Shop Pro 8. Eye Candy 5: Impact will ship in July for around £54 ($99.) Users registered for other Alien Skin products will get a discount on their order. For more information, see www.alienskin.com.
