Inklination Inc. has released a new Photoshop filter, Inklination Xhatch 1.5. Inklination Xhatch brings pen-and-ink effects to Photoshop, and is replacing the Crosshatching filter. According to Inklination:
Xhatch 1.5 follows in the footsteps of the popular Crosshatching filter, and brings the elegance of traditional art and illustration to Adobe Photoshop and compatible hosts. It offers graphic designers, artists and Web-content developers unique creative possibilities with an easy learning curve.
Inklination Xhatch 1.5 features 30 ready-to-use built-in effects, five unique apply modes, and the ability to design custom effects with a simple and elegant user interface. In addition, a large preview area, clear controls, and consistent results at all resolutions are only some of the features that enhance user productivity.
Like its predecessor, Crosshatching, Inklination Xhatch 1.5 make it simple to create traditional pen-and-ink effects from a variety of source images. But with the addition of the new apply modes, amazing full-color effects are now just a few clicks away. Other new features include support for CMYK source images, contrast control within the filter for ease of use, a completely revised user interface, and a larger preview area.
Inklination Xhatch is available for US$25. A demo version is also available. You can find more information at the Inklination Inc. web site.
