I downloaded the free version, paid $69 to upgrade to v6 and without any knowledge of filters, tried this program out…
I used a photo I’d taken of tulips (which I had previously experimented on with changing the color of one of the tulips).
I opened my photo in PSP X9, applied the Filter Forge effects and came up with some pretty cool results.
The photo attached (l-r clockwise) has my original photo, a grunge filter, an edge-finder filter, and a creative “stamp” filter.
In about 1 hour I was producing like a pro! (which I am not – far from it)
THANK YOU Cassel for making me aware of this. This is a “gold-mine find”.
