Raleigh, NC (February 18, 2003) - Recently, Alien Skin Software, LLC, introduced Xenofex 2, 14 more phenomenal effects for Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint Shop Pro, and other image editors. Continuing the Eye Candy tradition, Xenofex 2 simulates spectacular natural phenomena, produces striking distortions, and instantly transforms photos. Completely rewritten and including five new filters, the multitalented Xenofex 2 will please graphic designers, digital photographers, and special effects enthusiasts.
Xenofex 2 simulates spectacular natural phenomena. Instead of buying stock photos of clouds or lightning, designers can now render realistic storms using their own photographs. Improved controls allow users to "aim" lightning by specifying beginning and end points. In addition, photographers can precisely age their photos with Stain, Cracks, and Burnt Edges.
Xenofex 2 has fantastic distortions. Users can warp their images with Television, Crumple, and more. 3-D effects, such as Flag, Shatter and Rip Open expand the artistic palette of any graphics enthusiast.
Xenofex 2 transforms images into jigsaw puzzles, constellations, and intricate mosaics with a single click. The advanced edge detection of Constellation and Classic Mosaic properly match colors and align tiles/stars for the best effect.
Xenofex 2 adopts the simple, uncluttered interface that premiered with Eye Candy 4000. Users tweak their effects in a huge preview that includes underlying layers and command menus, and keyboard shortcuts. Presets put hundreds of one-click effects at users' fingertips. Switch between filters in the preview window and enjoy unlimited undo capability.
"Xenofex 2 is a versatile collection of special effects for both experienced and beginning Photoshop users," said Jeff Butterworth, President of Alien Skin Software. "We've totally rewritten this version and added four new filters, making Xenofex 2 a great upgrade and a product that we're proud of."
Now carbonized for OS X on the Macintosh, Xenofex 2 will be available for the Macintosh and Windows platforms late in the first quarter of 2003. The estimated street price for Xenofex 2 will be $129. Registered users of other Alien Skin Software products will receive discount pricing when ordering directly from Alien Skin Software. Xenofex 2 will also be available through stores, catalogs, and resellers. Online delivery will be available at the Alien Skin Web site.
