Filter Forge 2.0 Beta Update 2.004 – Support for Library Filters Made in Filter Forge 2.0

March 30, 2010

Alexandria, VA, USA (March 30, 2010) – Filter Forge, Inc. today released the update 2.004 to Filter Forge 2.0 Beta, a Photoshop plugin that allows users to create their own filters. The current update opens the online filter library for filters made in Filter Forge 2.0 Beta, lets users update Filter Forge 1.0 filters in 2.0 Beta, and changes the way library filters are rendered.

Filter Forge 2.0 Beta users can now submit new filters to the online filter library, as well as make and submit updates to 1.0 filters. If a Filter Forge 1.0 filter was updated in 2.0 Beta, the original filter version can still be downloaded and used in 1.0. Additionally, the render time limit for 2.0 library filters is waived, as Filter Forge 2.0 Beta now renders all library filter images on the filter author's computer before submitting them to the server, which allows users to submit very complex filters.

How to update: To download and install the update 2.004, select Tools > Updates from the Filter Forge 2.0 Beta main menu. The update preserves all downloaded and user-created filters, as well as user settings and the beta license key. Users who do not want to use the built-in update feature can download and install the update manually from http://www.filterforge.com/download/beta2/index.html
