Most filters in Filter Forge support seamless tiling, even for non-square textures.
Filter Forge can generate diffuse, bump, specular and normal maps – all are anti-aliased and most are seamlessly tiled.
As all filters are generated procedurally, any filter can be rendered in any resolution without losing a detail.
We are excited to offer cooperation to computer artists, graphic software authors, bloggers, online store owners and all Filter Forge lovers. We are open to all forms of partnership.
The Filter Forge Watercolor filter is so realistic that it's scary. It is soooooooo GREAT! Trust me, you definitely need to check this out.

“For 3D modelers, Filter Forge is a dream come true. It creates seamless textures with a single mouse click. The professional version creates the following map types for any texture: bump, normal, specular strength, specular exponent, diffuse, metallic, and alpha. The same filter can be used to generate any resolution, since filters are procedural.”
