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.
