Optics Reviews

Best Photoshop Plugin? DIYP Reviews Boris FX Optics

[Optics] claims to do magnificent things and it does them very well indeed. Optics packs lots of effects for a very affordable price, as well as having a simple-to-navigate UI. If you don’t feel like using Optics as a plugin, it’s available as a standalone program. That said, if you’re shooting on modern cameras that capture above 30 Megapixels you may want quite a powerful computer. Other than that, I’d recommend optics to people looking for a unique and different look, but who are not in a position to create those effects in-camera.
