Path Styler Pro for Photoshop is part professional designer tool, and part crazy toy. You'll spend hours exploring the amazing presets, and hours more creating and saving your own styles. The interface is easy to work with and within minutes you'll find yourself up and running and creating stunning effects with very little effort at all.
Path Styler Pro uses Photoshop's own paths as a base to create images with ultra sharp bevels. Powerful features like procedural maps, metallic materials, textures, and reflections allow you to create high-quality graphics almost instantly. The plugin also allows you to create refractive bevels that distort the background, and create styles that remain editable after you apply the Path Styler Pro filter.
The interface gives you instant control with dynamic sliders, onscreen controls, unlimited undo/redo capabilities, and a large preview that immediately updates when you make changes.
How It Works
(from the product website)
Many graphics programs use a pixel-based technique to create bevels. This technique produces artifacts that make the bevel have a chiseled look. To remove these artifacts, the bevel needs to be smoothed. However, smoothing out the artifacts also smoothes out any details and you end up with a soft blurry bevel.
Path Styler Pro creates sharp path-based bevels that do not require smoothing. Paths are used throughout Photoshop to describe the outlines of shapes, such as circles, rectangles, and even text. Shapes, also called vector objects, always have crisp edges. But when you add a pixel-based bevel to a shape, the shape is rasterized before the bevel is added, so the bevel itself is not crisp.
Path Styler Pro, on the other hand, first adds the bevel to the path, and then rasterizes the shape, creating a sharp and clean image. Another advantage of path-based bevels is that in addition to the rounded joins at corners, you can now have beveled and mitered joins as well.
This is a powerful Photoshop plugin that produces professional looking bevels and effects without too much of a learning curve. Online help is well written and walks you through setup and a variety of tutroials for popular styles. Company offers a try-before-you-buy demo that you can download at the site.

When an image is loaded, Fluid Mask's segmentation engine analyses the distribution of colors, finding the natural groups within the image. Together with information calculated about edges, gradients and textures, a model is constructed which divides the images into objects.

SiteGrinder 2 - Photoshop Plugin
There often seems to be a strict division of labor within the world of web design and development. Creative professionals tend to stick to the Photoshop domain, while those well-versed in scripting are left to the task of implementing their work. Indeed, the two realms are quite different from each other, to which any of us even vaguely familiar with either can easily attest.
Essentially, Photoshop is a no-holds-barred design studio, offering the artist a seemingly endless array of creative options. On the other hand, HTML, CSS, Java and the like follow strict rules of engagement, requiring the developer to take any number of esoteric concerns into consideration in order to ensure that designs are properly displayed on the web.
Turn Photoshop Into A Complete Web Design Tool
SiteGrinder 2 seeks to bridge this gap between design and development. Basically, this program turns Photoshop into an easy-to-use and fully functional web design tool. With SiteGrinder 2, designers will now have the freedom to totally let their creativity loose and then, without skipping a beat, transfer their designs to the web. Bringing esthetic concerns together with more practical considerations, this program is an amazingly powerful tool that would make a fantastic addition to any web designer's bag of tricks.
Generate Your Web Pages Directly From Photoshop
By generating web pages directly from Photoshop, you'll be able to spend much more time on the creative end of the spectrum, since you'll know right off the bat how well particular designs will translate to the web. No more going back to the Photoshop drawing board after getting a phone call from your development team, telling you that what you had envisioned doesn't have a chance of being displayed on the web. You can immediately visually and interactively test your designs, which permits you to then make changes to either esthetics or functions while it's still relatively early on in the design process.
Pricing and Availability
Mac OS X and Windows versions of the SiteGrinder unlockable demo are available now via download. SiteGrinder 2 can be ordered from Media Lab's online store.
