    Filter Forge Basic Edition: Ideal for people who want quick results now. The Basic edition cannot create filters, but you have all 7336 user-created filters at your disposal.

    Filter Forge Standard Edition: Best value for money - you save $149 and get everything except specialist features such as 16- and 32-bit image modes, large resolutions and bump/normal maps.

    Filter Forge Professional Edition: Filter Forge in all its glory - high-precision imagery, ultra-large bitmaps up to 65000x65000 pixels, bump and normal maps, and an unlimited number of CPU cores.

    To make life easier for people with large filter collections, Filter Forge 2.0 introduces an instant filter search that lets you quickly find filters as you type, searching filter names, descriptions, authors and keywords, and displaying the results immediately. No more fuss with the categories – just type what you want and get it in less than a second!

    Median, Minimum, Maximum and Percentile Components

    With these new components, you can now perform minimum, median, maximum and custom-percentile filtering. The Median and Percentile components are especially handy for creating a wide variety of artistic effects, thanks to their ability to simplify the source image by removing small details while preserving the edges.

    Non-Seamless Filters

    Since the beginning, Filter Forge was all about seamless textures. But times are changing – Filter Forge 2.0 is no longer confined to seamlessly-tiled filters. Unrestricted, non-tiled textures and effects are now first-class citizens of Filter Forge. Support for non-seamless filters enables long-requested features: unrestricted transforms (Scale, Rotate, Offset, Flip and Lookup) and non-tiled Free Gradient, Ellipse, Polygon and Rectangle components.
