Eye Candy 4000

My friend bought this plugin.Went over to his place to check it out.I really dont see the point in purchasing this plugin.Most(read all) of are pretty simple.They can easily be done in PS.Dont know about PSP.These plugins just save you 30 sec to a minute.Is it really worth it.Anyone else have this plugin.

Warez?Or are you taking about Eye Candy 3?
The point is that it just took me 30 sec to a minute to do all those effects.

I like 4000, though I use it as a plugin for PS, and really only use chrome, bevel boss, and glass to any real amount. Yeah, they can be done with the regular effects as well, but the options/preview makes it easy to see, and combining the effects can be nice *shrugs* I like it anyway...

Ive got both eyecandy and blade pro...I use eyecandy because i find it simpler.

And yeh, theyre just to save time so you dont have to use multiple filters to get the same effect.

eye candy is a great plugin.. but like most have said you'd only need to use a few tools within. if u can get it for free, go get it, even if you borrow the legit version off your friend and install that.

Sounds like a fair deal to me....but methinks you'll spend more time teaching ps than the time you'll save using eyecandy...

I like Eyecandy for bevels - chrome, bevel boss, glass - I usually set the shading opacity really low or at zero so whatever I already have done doesn't disappear and it just effects the bevel

as for flaming pear - I never use blade pro - don't like it - like ::insert name here:: said above, it has too many controls - spend more time playing with them than actually skinning

I do however use Glitterato, Hue & Cry, and "Make Opaque" - all made by flaming pear

all of these can be downloaded from www.flamingpear.com - and if you have need to get rid of annoying "register me" messages, drop me a PM

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com
I can't remember all the names but specifically hunting for Lascivious, and DEVOUR (compilation with Jax) and any in the Impulse series which had 6 total. Auriferous, Gilt, Impulse, Nadir, and 2 others I can't remember but you dig.
