Hi there,

There are shed loads of plug-in's for Photoshop these days but I was wondering what ones are actually getting used and that people find useful?

I do like the Fred Miranda ones myself.

Can anyone recommend any others that are worth a try?

depends on what you are after, of course. Personally for upsizing, I have yet to come across a better one than Genuine fractals for quality..

Genuine fractals, noise ninja and Corel Knockout. All get used on a weekly basis.

A vote for Photokit Sharpener here. Takes all the guesswork out.

The two I use most often are,
Interpolate this
and Virtual photographer. Both superb pieces of software(plugins).

Bernie, if you like those, try these demos, you'll be able to continue using them even after expirey, you just have to clone out the bit of junk they leave. here

I've installed/dowmlaoded about a dozen from various magazines, but the only one I tend to use is Fotomatics BW-Plus.

It basically converts an image to Black & Whote, but offers the filter options that many traditional 35mm photographers would use. (red, green etc) It's great for portraits, and moody B&W shots.

Often pops up as a freebie on magazines and well worth a look.

Fotomatic range of filters are not available to DL from that site Conrad. Here is what they say...

These filters are currently work-in-progess and I will be releasing each one individually as soon as they are ready. Please note that some of them are to be used as "exclusive" content for various magazine CDRom cover disks and as such they will not appear on this site until some time afterwards.

I'll keep on looking...

They are downloadable, but not obviously so. When you get to the screen mentioned by PaulG scroll to the top and click on "Freeware" and follow the sub-menus - these takes you straight to the download areas.
