About this item

the Alien Skin Software Eye Candy 7 Photo Editing Software for Mac and PC is a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements that renders realistic effects which are difficult or impossible to achieve in Photoshop alone. Examples include Fire, Chrome and the new Lightning, Electrify and Cloud effects. Animal Fur, Smoke and Reptile Skin effects are rendered in rich, fine detail, down to individual hairs, turbulent wisps and shiny scales.

Eye Candy helps you quickly explore and design looks. Effects are chosen through easy to recognize icons rather than text menus. Presets, of which there are over 1000, are rapidly previewed by simply mousing over them. The user interface in general has been made more intuitive. The theme is less clicking and more visual browsing. Eye Candy conveniently scales effects to match the size of your artwork.

The software is compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 or later or Windows 7 or later and requires one of the following host applications Adobe Photoshop CS5 or later or Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 or later.

Key Features

  • Even Easier: Alien Skin has completely rewritten the Eye Candy user interface to make it easier to explore. The theme is less clicking and more visual browsing. Eye Candy 7 is now a single entry in Photoshop's filter menu
  • New Effects: Lightning, Electrify and Cloud effects have been brought over, by popular demand, from Alien Skin's discontinued Xenofex product. They've been rewritten for the Eye Candy 7 framework, which provides faster previewing, better preset management and easier experimentation
  • More on Lightning: You can adjust start and end points for your lightning bolts, choose from a wide variety of different styles and adjust attributes such as arc thickness, jaggedness, branching, branch spread and glow intensity via sliders
  • Navigator: Once you choose an effect, you can explore presets fast using the navigator, which is a small preview that instantly updates. You don't even have to click. Just mouse over preset names and the navigator shows how the effect will look in your design
  • Preference: In the preference panel you can choose how the effect is rendered in a new layer. If you prefer the Eye Candy 5 approach, you can have the new layer include just the effect and not a copy of your original artwork
  • Transparency: Many Eye Candy effects use transparency, so the transparency display control has been moved out of the preference panel and placed under the main preview
  • Realistic Effects: Eye Candy helps designs look natural and organic. Effects like Animal Fur, Smoke and Reptile Skin are rendered in rich, fine detail, down to individual hairs, turbulent wisps and shiny scales
  • Scaling Modes: Eye Candy scales effects to match the size of your current artwork. That makes it less likely that you will have to tweak a preset to make it look good. This means you can apply a preset to a low-resolution image and when you apply it to a high-resolution image, effect looks correct
  • Non-Destructive Editing: Effects are drawn into a new layer, leaving your original artwork untouched. Eye Candy can also work as a Smart Filter, which lets you modify or remove the effect later. You can save presets to consistently recreate your favorite looks
  • Ready for Professional Applications: Eye Candy can handle images in CMYK mode and 16-bits/channel, which are needed for professional print work
