The guys from TOPAZ have just released new plug-in : TOPAZ TEXTURE EFFECTS. I signed up for free, 30-day trial right away and...ended it the day after. Not because I did not like it but because of the opposite - I have decided to purchase it ( there is 20$ discount if you by it by the end of today ). It is not the best of plug-ins and some of the presets are over the top, but all can be tweaked and adjusted, and my main concern here was the time saved using this software. So far I was looking for, downloading and trying various textures separately, now most the effects that can be achieved using them are in one place. From half-hour to few minutes when working on one picture - and for around 30£ - that was a no-brainer.
Here is the sample gallery - all work done in less then half-hour.
