Andromeda has done it again: Created a wonderful new plugin filter with an unusual effect. Starting with either a color or black and white picture, EtchTone combines an etched pattern (black and white) with the original image. The effect created is an outstanding old printing look.

EtchTone's user interface is clean and simple to understand. As you run your mouse over the different sections of the filter's screen, it will identify and explain the controls. Every detail is adjustable, from the amount of steel etched into your image, to the sharpness, brightness and contrast of the original image, to the degree to which the original image is mixed with the etch pattern.

If you need help, there is a great FAQ on the Andromeda website.

EtchTone is definitely a one-of-a-kind filter. You owe it to yourself to check it out!
