The Designer Sextet from Flaming Pear obviously includes six filters: Swerve, Lacquer, Twist, Aetherize, Silver and Glare. The names of the filters are exactly what they do: Swerve deforms, Lacquer coats, Twist churns, Aetherize creates a look from dreamy to acidic, Silver gives images a metallic glitter, and Glare adds blindingly bright light.
I downloaded, installed, and played with these filters for the demo period. Although they are far from unique (several other filters that I've found produce the same effects), I find Flaming Pear's user interface friendly and functional. At $49 U.S. for the set, they're moderately priced.
Download the demo version and see what you think!
