announced the availability of Texture Anarchy for Photoshop. Texture Anarchy includes three plug-ins designed to create infinite, seamless textures and borders. Texture Anarchy provides an easy way of creating complex, sophisticated textures that can look organic, artificial, or surreal.
In all three filters, the user has complete control over the textures. An easy to use user interface provides a powerful front end for experimentation and creation. Four modifiable light sources, a complete gradient editor, and 38 different base noise types allow an endless number of textures. The textures are generated mathematically using sophisticated fractal algorithms. This allows the texture to be scaled up or down indefinitely and used at any resolution.
Texture Anarchy Explorer is basically a texture laboratory, giving users 38 different noise types that can be layered on top of each other and combined in any way imaginable. Users can apply lights, gradients, blend modes, and opacity controls to add depth and color. The textures that are created have no limits on size, resolution, or complexity.
Texture Anarchy ships with hundreds of presets for completed textures, borders, lights, and gradients. The presets can be used as is, for a quick solution to a design idea, or as a seed for generating dozens of variations with a single click of the Mutation controls. The Digital Anarchy Web site will support user trading of preset files in the near future.
Texture Anarchy is available now for a special introductory price of USD $129, regular price $149. The plug-in set is compatible with Photoshop 3.0 and higher, Photoshop Elements, and Jasc PaintShop Pro and will run on Mac OS 9 and X and Windows 98/2000/XP.
