the best way to learn is by taking things apart and looking at how they work,..and then experimenting.
it’s great that there are so many filterforge users willing to share their filters in the library, and it’s a great learning resource.
Here’s the simple (first version) of the photo damage filter for FF3.
Drop it into your filter library,... it should be : Users\ “you” \ AppData\Roaming\Filter Forge 3\My Filters
Then just open any image,. run filterforge and choose that filter. ..It’ll automagically read in the open image layer and apply the filter to it.
you can adjust the Colour tone component, and change the variation to randomise the damage.
you can also change the pixel size to add a grainy effect.
but best of all,.. you can edit it and see how it’ done, and change things, and play ....
I know how to add filters Andy. And Thanks for the filter. I just thought you might have some links to tut’s on what the differnent options in FF did when you used them. I’m still lost, I guess I could start taking the ones I like apart but I’m looking to learn how to build from scratch.
