Tast y filte rs Easily add and manage great photo effects
PhotoDonut (previously known as PostworkShop Pro) is a good Photoshop plugin, but not for the reasons Xycod thinks.
Apps that claim to instantly transform photos into art often fall short of their boasts because they lack the skill and wisdom of artists to know how to control effects (though we’ll concede mobile app Prisma comes close). And PhotoDonut doesn’t deliver to its claim of “The best artistic effects for your photos”.
Some of the painting filters are nice, and could work well as a base with further painting done in Photoshop or Painter, but a lot of them leave too much of the photo underneath. The art you create is clearly produced by filters and there isn’t enough control of the effects.
PhotoDonut’s real strength lies in its selection of photo filter presets that can alter your photos to make them look like colour graded, postprocessed stills from a high-quality TV show. Being able to take the results from the plugin into Photoshop elevates this above simply applying an Instagram filter, and the ability to highlight favourite filters negates the need to trawl through huge lists every time.
The painting effects are obvious filters, but could work as a starting points for illustrations.
PhotoDonut’s library of filters can make your photos look like colour graded film stills.
