Tiffen DFX 3 Features

  • Color Shadow: Creates a high contrast image overlayed with a gradient, simulating the look and feel of those colorful iPod commercials
  • DeBand: Removes banding artifacts from an image by smoothing pixels in banded areas while retaining detail. Banding frequently occurs, in blue skies for instance, with DSLRs as well as digital cameras. DeBand effectively smooths out this unwanted banding
  • DeBlock: Removes blocking artifacts created as a result of high compression factors, such as overly compressed JPG images which often cause square blocking artifacts
  • DeNoise: Grain and noise from digital cameras, whether still or video, is a common problem. DeNoise removes the grain and noise while still retaining detail
  • Film Stocks: Simulates 113 different colors and black & white photographic film stocks. For those desiring the look of either old or current film stocks, there are simulations of many of the popular brands from Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, Polaroid and Ilford
  • Glow Darks: Glows and grows the dark areas of an image, creating a stylized, dreamy dark glow
  • Key Light: Relights images with a directional or point light. Changing the lighting after an image has been photographed gives the photographer/editor control to fix or enhance their images, as well as create interesting lighting effects
  • Rays: Creates stunning and realistic light ray effects quickly and easily. Rays can add shafts of light streaming through clouds, rays filtering through a forest canopy, beams of light on a foggy night, or rays shooting through an interior window
  • Texture: Applies textures to an image for a stylized look. Adding texture to an image is a great way to create a unique and customized look
  • Match: Matches the color, detail, gradient and tone of one image and applies it to another

Easy software


from Las Vegas  -  Value Oriented

Very easy to use. Has enough filters for basic creativity. Good for starting out!


Good free-standing filter set


from Greensboro, NC  -  Quality Oriented

There are several filter plug-ins for Photoshop and other programs; this one is very good for just a quick fix without having to wait for the big programs. I like some filters better than those in Photoshop or NIK, for example, and some not so well. At the current discounted price, however, it is worth having.

Does not work with Windows 8


from Oakland, CA  -  Quality Oriented

This software does not work with Windows 8. It will not install. I asked Adorama for help, and got zero reply. So I am rating both the Tiffen DFX and Adorama 1 star. Usually each of them is much better.
