franp User This is a very powerfull product ; a bit overpriced at nominal price but this bargain (90% !) is not to miss if you are in texture creation.
I ghave been owning a licence for years and regret to not have time enough to exploit its full potential which is enormous.

Note that the upgrade rate of the developers is rather speedy (one major upgrade every year or so) but since the product is both a Photoshop plug-in and a stand-alone product, you are not obliged to upgrade for cross-software compatibility problems ; the stand alone version can be used indefinitly

I recommand.

Filter Forge (Jane) Hi franp, thanks for the detailed feedback. I hope it will help other users to make up their mind.

By the way, in version 7.0 we added the Copy and Paste feature. It allows you to easily transfer images back and forth between Filter Forge and any image editing application, whether it has plugin support or not AND to subsequently apply multiple filters to the same input image.

Andres Florez Herrero I'm sorry to say that I'm a little angry because I bought the previous version just over 3 months ago. I think I should be entitled to a free update?

Lonny User it says at the bottom that i have access to 12000 filters but this is not true, what i can see, some free online photo editors are better then this basic version, also many paid editors like affinty photo with the nik collection is much better, this seems like bait unless there is something i do not see, please post my comment because the truth is the truth, why is this at the bottom of the sale for the basic version if i cannot access it ? Enjoy an incredible collection of filters for Adobe Photoshop and a bunch of other graphic editors (https://www.filterforge.c...hosts.html).
Built procedural textures, effects, distortions, backgrounds, and more.
Access a library of over 12,000 user-created filters.
You can download and install a free trial of this software before purchasing

Filter Forge (Jane) Hi Lonny, why do you think that you do not have access to all the filters in the library? You should have, and if you have any problems, please contact our support team via or give me more details about the problem here.

Lonny User I have access to them but only access, when I try to open and use them, it do not work, it says buy filter forge now ? what am I doing wrong ? it is useless to have access if I cannot use them, I believe that this is a really good software but with basic version there are very few choices..

Filter Forge (Jane) Hi Lonny, to use all the filters you need to buy the full version or use the free 30-day trial. If you use the trial you'll get this ad every time you launch Filter Forge. You just need to find a Use Free Trial button and push it.

Filter Forge (Jane) Hi Andres Florez Herrero, I'm sorry to hear that. You can unsubscribe from your newsletter anytime you want. Still I can't get when we wasted your time?

Let me explain how it all (I mean developing a program) works. We work all the year round, fixing bugs, reading our users' wishes and trying to figure out how we can make them true. We succeed and fail, release minor and major updates, help our users to make Filter Forge work properly. We have a perfect features list which we want to see in the next version. When we tick all the items in this list (or the majority of them) we release a new version. We cannot predict the exact release date. Because, you know, every time before the "release date" one of the developers cries "IT doesn't work properly!" or "I finally know how to make this feature come true" and the release date is rescheduled.

On the other side are marketers, designers and me, social media voice. We do not know for sure when the release is and I would be strange if we told users every now and then "Don't buy Filter Forge now. We will release the new version (maybe) next week (maybe)." AND that is why we have a golden rule for those who've bought Filter Forge too close to release date 'cause we understand that it frustrates. The golden rule is "We grant free upgrades to all the users who've bought Filter Forge a month before the release."

Sorry for the longread. And all the best to you, Andres!

Andres Florez Herrero Hi Ms. Jane!

I hope to explain myself better despite the fact that English is not my language.
Support has wasted my time:

Day 19: the support tells me how to download and activate filter forge 5 (I did not ask that, I wanted to upgrade to forge 7 because I had bought version 6 a few months ago)
Day 19: I informed them that I bought filter fotge 6 a little over 3 months ago and I sent them a license key.
Day 22: The support says they have no record that I buy forge 6 and that I send the order number.
Day 22: I send the purchase invoice.
Day 22: The support reminds me of the name and license number (Why? I sent this information). And I am told that since I made the purchase on September 28 instead of October 20, I can not get an update. 3 weeks apart, this is crazy.

When I bought Forge 6, a few weeks later (3-4) I was offered the upgrade to Forge 7, sorry but this seems like a scam, is it like selling 2 times the same product? Why did they sell me something that was about to disappear? Explain it to me because I do not understand it, thank you.

In addition I am going to comment to him that an equal thing happened to me with the company REALLUSION (its support is excellent, by the way). I bought CrazyTalkAnimator1 and after a few months (2-3) the second version came out. I wrote an email saying that it seemed unfair and they gave me a license. Since then I keep buying his products (CrazyTalk and Business Avatars ...) and I make good publicity. To see the difference between the policy of one company and that of another.

Now I hope to have explained myself, fine. Sorry if the translation is not very correct.

My best wishes to you and yours.
Andrés F.

Filter Forge (Jane) Hi Andres, thank you for the explanation.

Filter Forge 6 is not going to disappear. It works now and it will work in future. We still have users who use Filter Forge 2 or even 1. With Filter Forge 6 you can use all the filters from the library for version 6 and lower and you have all the features except for those we released in version 7.0.

With every new version we add new features and that is what we sell in the upgrades. So now it doesn't look like scam, does it?

As for the company's politics, yes we have one and we try to stick to it. 'Cause if we give a free upgrade to you, then why don't we give free upgrades to the users who've bought Filter Forge 6 on September 1? It is only 2-3 weeks away.

We sell upgrades to make Filter Forge better and better in each next version.

As for our support team, sorry for a bit of misunderstanding between you and them.

Best regards,
