New texture tools and sloppy borders from Kubota - Kubota teams up with Benjamin Edwards to create a fast and easy way to add textures to images.
Kubota Image Tools have announced today at the WPPI Convention and Trade Show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, new Kubota Texture Tools and Kubota Sloppy Borders on Dashboard.
Now available are 100 textures that range in style from smooth and organic, to high tech and electric and over 100 classic film-effect borders, all for use with Dashboard for easy searching, previewing, and applying of borders and textures to images.
Kubota Image Tools has teamed up with professional photographer and philanthropist Benjamin Edwards to create the new Kubota Texture Tools – a fast and easy way to add unique textures to images. Available starting today at WPPI are two versions of Texture Tools – “Earth Textures - Smooth Organic Pak” and “Industrial Textures - High Tech Electric Pak”. Each texture (50 in each pak) was individually created with an experienced eye for how textures can be used over images. These textures can be easily applied to all image sizes as well as previously cropped images.
Also available are the Kubota Sloppy Borders being re-released now for use with the Dashboard interface for dramatically increased ease-of-use. These borders help photographers apply the classic look of old film to their images with creative borders ranging from elegantly thin, to eye-catching medium to bold, thick borders.
“Textures add an almost intangible depth and richness to an image. They add great visual appeal to a photo, but have been time consuming or confusing to apply,” said Kevin Kubota, Idea Man of Kubota Image Tools. “Our new Dashboard simplifies and speeds up the process to the point of ‘no-brainer’. Ben's textures are amazingly artistic and created with an experienced eye for how textures will be used over other images.”
“I needed a faster, intuitive way to add texture to my images,” said Benjamin Edwards. “I found it in Dashboard.”
Kubota Image Tools’ exclusive Dashboard is a floating palette within Photoshop that acts like a mini search engine for actions. With the new Dashboard 3 Pro from Kubota Image Tools, photographers can find any action instantly, run any action instantly, keyword search actions, add descriptions to any action, mark favorite actions and use award-winning actions from Kubota Image Tools, or run their own actions and any actions from their collection.
Kubota Texture Tools “Earth Textures – Smooth Organic Pak” and “Industrial Textures – High Tech Electric Pak” and Kubota Sloppy Borders are now available for $149 each. For more information visit the Kubota Image Tools website.
