The first thing about this superb program that stands out is that you get two programs for the price of one. You get the standalone version and the plugin version for such programs as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, Jasc Paint Shop Pro and others.

The main random seed algorithm will give infinitesimal different graphic images. You can make skins and icons for your favorite programs, seamless backgrounds and buttons for your web page, advertising banners, textures and even create animation and video effects, plus much much more. There are more than fifty built in, ready-to-use effects including generators, deformers, filters, color adjustment, special fx and buffer operations. It also comes with a variety examples that you can modify and mix etc. to get you started. It is very easy to use and I was creating backgrounds, seamless tiles and textures within minutes. If however you do need assistance there is a very good help file with a selection of tutorials included.
