Commercial and Free Adobe Photoshop Plugins, Filters

Within the Adobe Photoshop Plugins, Filters, and Standalone Software Programs page below you'll find free and commerical Photoshop plugins, filters. Most or all of them provide a downloadable trial with full or partial functioning, which is a great way to try something out to help decide if it's appropriate for your needs. All listings below come highly recommended, and I've personally tried and used quite a few of the plugins and standalone programs listed here.

All of the plugins and filters listed in this section are designed to work with Adobe Photoshop. Some also work with other graphics software, such as Corel Paint Shop Pro. Be sure to check the product information for software versions and compatibility.

Why use plugins? In a nutshell, plugins can dramatically speed up the process of fixing photos and images, adding textures or special effects, and much more, whether or not you could do them yourself without a plugin. Many plugins also include features to tweak the plugin settings to your liking, and some allow you to save your settings as presets to reuse, too. Plugins can also do things with the click of a button that perhaps you don't know how to do yourself or don't have time to learn how to do yourself. They can be handy, convenient, give high quality results, and be incredibly time-saving.

Are plugins worth purchasing? While some of's plugin listings are for free plugins, all or nearly all of the commercial plugin makers provide free trial downloads that include full features or partial functionality for a limited time. Then you can determine for yourself if a particular plugin is worth purchasing for your particular needs. is also selective in all of our listings - we're after quality, not quantity in our listings here. also welcomes feedback and recommendations.
